Making great wine requires faith and patience. Faith in the abilities of loyal growers, in those that make the wine, and in the fruit itself. It requires patience in order to understand vineyards over a number of vintages and a willingness to accept you don’t always get it right. It also takes patience to watch a wine that you know you can sell tomorrow, sit in an oak barrel for two years. The Reward pays homage to all those who work with St Hallett and is a reward for their faith and patience in our pursuit of making great wine.

Winery Tasting Notes
Dark red with purple hues
Vibrant varietal cabernet characters with blackcurrant and blackberry leaf in abundance
The palate is equally varietal with hints of cassis adding to the berry characters and nuances of choc-mint. There is classic cabernet structure with chalky and firm tannins and minerality supporting the flavours for a long finish.
It is drinking well on release and is expected to drink well until at least 2018.
Decanting for two hours prior to serving is recommended. Match with char grilled steak.
