Tasting note: On the nose, there is a big floral lift with white pepper, dried herbs and vibrant dark fruits. Planted 1919 is beautifully balanced and elegant. It opens with fine flavours of dark fruits and dried herbs, giving way to a flinty and wet stone texture supported by a fine pure fruit line with white pepper and slate. The tannins are fine and polished, folding into layer after layer of flavour with a long even finish. It is an elegant wine with great depth and complexity that will further unfold over time.
Established in 1944 by the Lindner Family, St Hallett represents the very spirit and sould of winemaking in the Barossa. Over this time, it has grown and changed and reinvented itself, to achieve a rare distinction as one of Australia's most respected wine brands. From the beginning, St Hallett understood the importance of saving old vines and focusing on varieties that thrive in the Barossa region - particularly Shiraz. More than 70 years on from these humble beginnings, St Hallett has established a reputation for making wines with exceptional quality and character.
