Expert Reviews

Herald Sun, Tony Love (Australia), 19 Jan 10

5 Stars

"One of three Gamekeepers, including the original shiraz/grenache, this one is bouncing off the same shiraz, but the blending of 40 per cent cabernet sauvignon gives the plush, plummy shiraz extra lift. Brilliant Barossa value."

"Is this the best new bargain red? Too right it is! Shiraz’s berry fruits and spice meet cabernet’s capsicum and leaf, and the result is much more sophisticated than its measly price."

Illawarra Mercury, Kerry Skinner (Australia), 07 Oct 09

Vintage: 2008

"... its nicely textured and well crafted with blackberry and plum fruit flavours, integrated spice and minty notes, good oak and juicy tannins."

"... Has a sappy and slightly astringent palate, with the cabernet adding some spine to the fleshy shiraz. Good tannins and oak balance. Nice blackcurrant and plummy flavours. Great current drinking."

Herald Sun, Paddy Kendler (Australia), 22 Sep 09

"St Hallett has extended its popular Gamekeepers red range which now consists of shiraz grenache, shiraz and shiraz cabernet... the cabernet blend is my preference. It has a little more depth and overall structure than the others, its a little more complex and has a wider array of fruit aromas and flavours."

Courier Mail, Brisbane, Mike Frost (Australia), 15 Sep 09

"This consistent drop shows rich dark berry and blackcurrant fruit on the nose and palate with restrained oak and fine tannins. "

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.
