Expert Reviews

4.5 Stars / 93 Points - "Old Block is delving into earthy, tarry blackberry country – a classic Barossa shiraz with some nutty oak influence edging across the nose. On the one hand there’s a deep anchor of fruit through the base, and on the other sits fragrant lift. Plum fruits linger through the finish, ripe, juicy and promising to deliver handsomely with time in the cellar." - Nick Stock - Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 - November 2008.

93 Points - "This represents a fine, more savoury style for Old Block. There’s a lot going on in its core, with loads of fruit concentration, grippy charry oak, vegetable flavours and a long finely structured finish." - Tyson Stelzer - Wine Business Monthly - August 2008.

Winery Tasting Notes


Deep garnet reds with a hint of violet; this depth of colour is a highlight of the 2005 vintage. The appearance is slightly opaque due to the minimal filtration this wine undergoes. This is performed to minimize the chance of “stripping” any of the wine's delicate aromas.


The bouquet instantly evokes memories of moments tasting some excellent Eden Valley Shiraz wines. It is highly floral with an infusion of menthol and pepper spice. Powerful, pungent aromas of dark chocolate and coffee are entwined with a soft, underlying sweet milk chocolate.


Here the wine underplays the power within; the palate displays a compelling elegance and persistence with textured, seamless tannins. There is also a lovely round, cuddy chewiness that adds to the complexity and textural nature of this wine, which promises to age gracefully over the next 2 decades.

Food Matching

Endeavour to decant this wine 2 to 3 hours prior to serving. Excellent with rich venison and other game dishes.

Cellaring Potential

The superb 2005 Vintage is expected to evolve beautifully over the next 15 - 18 years and with correct cellaring should peak in 20 years.

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.
