Expert Reviews

"A charmingly complex, regional and savoury semillon with a punchy, intensely ripe and slightly meaty bouquet whose aromas of honeydew melon, lemon sherbet and lime juice are backed by leesy and oak-derived nuances of smoked meats. Long and smooth, it’s vibrant and juicy with bright tropical and melon fruit underpinned by delightfully complex secondary notes, finishing long and refreshing." Rating - 91 Jeremy Oliver, The Australian Wine Annual 2010(01/Oct/2009)

"Just beginning to show treasured aromatics of toast and honeysuckle, plus kaffir lime leaf, this will handsomely repay a further four or five years careful cellaring. It’s bone dry, medium bodied and nicely textured with ripe pear, nuances of persimmon and a spine of bracing lemon-lime acidity. The crisp refreshing finish showers a spray of white grapefruit and green apple..." 4 Stars - Vic Harradine, www.winecurrent.com, (03/Apr/2010)

"Still moving toward maturity; crisp and firm, lemon, mineral, herb and grass intermingling. "Rating 90 - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2009 (05/Jan/2009)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In the heart of the Barossa Valley, Australia’s best known wine region, lies St Hallett, one of the country’s premier wine producers. Established by the Lindner Family in 1944, for many years St Hallett’s winemaking focus was, like many local wineries, on producing fortified wines. However during the seventies and eighties St Hallett turned to explore the true potential of the Barossa through premium table wines. This has resulted in St Hallett’s elevation as one of Australia’s best producers.

St Hallett is renowned for crafting full-flavored, textured wines entirely from Barossa Valley fruit and is credited with producing benchmark wines of the region such as the iconic St Hallett Old Block Shiraz, made from vines aged up to 100 years old.
