Palate Profile

St Hallett is one of the top boutique winery names of Australia's Barossa Valley. Founded in 1944 by the Lindner family, they wanted to save the old vines. The result is a treasure of a wine – Barossa Shiraz, packed with chocolaty cherry and spice.

If you are an admirer of St Hallett reds, this is the shiraz which most likely started it for you. Faith's vibrant yet dense purple hue hints at the generosity of fruit within. It is a fruit driven, expressive example of Barossa Shiraz made all the more remarkable by its modest price tag. Faith is in terrific form.

Critic Awards

Blackwell assumes a unique place in the St Hallett hierarchy, embodying the density and impact of the northern Barossa in waves of blackberry and satsuma plum fruit and licorice. Fantastic hue of full, vibrant purple. Dark chocolate oak lurks in the background. Quintessential modern Barossa shiraz.

The nose is a melange of baked plums, cinnamon and paprika. Monster concentration, a sense of viscosity across the palate from this. Purple fruits abound with licorice, mocha and sweet spice layers. With all that concentration there are more than equally concentrated tannins to corral the enthusiasm

Vegemite and toasty spiced oak over ripe blackberry, liquorice and a minty floral perfume. Rich, full-bodied, ripe sweet dark fruit backed with roast coffee oak, almost sticky grainy tannin, plush, slightly salty, with a firm dry finish of fair length and some ripe raspberry bobbing up in after.
