"Dense red-purple; an equally dense palate, stuffed in a slightly unruly fashion with black fruits, vanilla and tannins. Excellent barbecue red. " Rating 88 - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2011
"You don’t fine much better than this for the asking price. It’s sweet, soft, fresh and juicy. Damn delicious too. Blackberried and raspberried and give-me-gobfuls please. No great sign of oak, though it hardly needs it – it’s soft enough. St Hallett has jumped out of the box with the 2008 vintage. " Rating 91 - Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh, Big Red Wine Book 2010/2011 Authors' Choice
"Chocolaty/licorice-like nose with a peppery lift, and simple, nicely balanced palate with porty fruit and soft tannins." 3.5 Stars - Winestate, Joanne Irvine, Stuart Blackwell, Stuart Bourne, Nigel Dolan & Wayne Dutschke (01/Apr/2010)
"Spicy, earthy and freshly picked mixed field berry aromas introduce a generous mouthful of flavour with spiced black plum and racy pie cherry to the fore. It’s medium bodied, nicely textured and well balanced with a velvety underpinning of smooth ripe tannin. The zesty finish is mouth watering with a shower of red currant and ripe cranberry." 4 Stars - Vic Harradine www.winecurrent.com
Winery Tasting Notes
Vibrant plum red with purple hues. A great example of a youthful Shiraz.
The style of this wine is all about lush, juicy plum and cherry flavours combining with a dark chocolate, blackberries and vanilla frame work to create a full bodied but soft rolling Barossa Shiraz experience.
Don't be shy with food matching;of course a great steak will be fantastic,but anything char-grilled and full flavoured works!
We recommend enjoying this wine while young, fresh and vibrant – what ever the occasion, we're sure you'll enjoy this Barossa Shiraz nearly as much as we do making it!
