Expert Reviews

"There’s an expectation of how these old-vine Barossa shiraz wines should taste. They almost have to have been handled traditionally – the same way they’ve been handled for the past twenty-five years. It has showy, coffeed, malty oak and dark, blackberried fruit. It’s a bit too coffeed for the most part – but then it comes through fresh and fruity on the finish. Pretty sure this wine will stand the test of time. "Rating 93 - Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh , Big Red Wine Book 2010/2011 (01/Jun/10)

Winery Tasting Notes

Region

64% Barossa Valley 36% Eden Valley.

Colour

Medium density reds with a touch of crimson.

Aroma

Elegant restraint is what immediately comes to mind – with a swirl of the glass the underlying complexity of this wine becomes apparent. There is the classic Eden Valley warming menthol aspect initially followed by blackberry fruit and dusty well integrated spicy French oak.

Palate

Beautifully poised at the moment with perfect balance between bright acidity and soft lingering tannins. The effect of the higher than usual portion of Eden Valley fruit is steering this wine into the more refined and subtle arena. The cooler Eden Valley provides the seamless tannins and elegant fruit. The Barossa Valley kicks in some density and then usual juiciness.

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 elegant 2007 Vintage is expected to evolve beautifully over the next 15 years and with correct cellaring should peak between 2018 and 2022.

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.
