Expert Reviews

St Hallett Riesling has recently ascended as a more serious contender than its price suggests and 2010 takes a place among the finest. Glorious purity and poise, with a vitality and freshness thanks to one of the lower alcohols of the vintage (11%) but captured at that perfect moment to showcase pure lemon and Granny Smith apple. Rating 94 - Tyson Stelzer, WBM (01/NOV/2010)

Delicately limey and showing a little SO,. The palate is linear, racy and backward, with all the attributes for cellaring.Highly Recommended - Lester Jesberg, Winewise (01/NOV/2010)

This year represents a super riesling vintage that has produced many outstanding wines across South Australias premium districts, though in addition to the regular icons this deliberately restrained wine looks especially good. Beyond showing hints of the Eden Valleys expected steely minerality and strong spine of citric acid, there is also great textural quality, with luscious lemon pith adding persistence and pleasure to a fulsome mouthfeel. By leaving this wine in the tank for longer before release, it tastes softer than many young rieslings, yet is still robust, with its rich flavour striking a fine balance without being too harsh or acidic.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Vibrant pale straw with bright green hues.

Aroma

This wine showcases a delicate bouquet of spring blossoms, zesty lemons and limes.

Palate

The palate is akin to the refreshing flavours of a citrus sorbet in between courses - with fantastic minerality and acid persistence.

Food Matching

This wine is delicious paired with freshly shucked oysters, is excellent with Asian style dishes or a ggreat Pad Thai - and will beautifully complement all seafood dishes, particularly shellfish with lemon based sauces.

Cellaring Potential

Drink while young, fresh and crisp or cellar for up to 8 years. The freshness of its youth is maintained excellently under screwcap. Typical of great Riesling, this wine has the pedigree, strucuture and acidity to develop and truly reward those with the virtue of patience.

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.
