Expert Reviews

Good colour; although in radically different style to Blackwell, with attractive, spice, chocolate and mocha components to its cherry and blackberry fruits; ever so slightly sweet.Rating 90 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion Edition 2011

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red with magenta hues.

Aroma

A vibrant nose of lifted red fruits of cherry and raspberry, with underlying spices and chocolate

Food Matching

This wine is perfect company to the usual suspects; grilled rack of lamb or fillet steak. It is also amazingly versatile as it partners a variety of cuisines - try with fragrant curries spiced with cinnamon and cardamom. The 2008 Faith Shiraz can also be enjoyed on it’s own as a glass that bursts with flavour.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy now or cellar until 2012 for further complexity.

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.
