Every Poacher needs a Gamekeeper! The companion to our bright and zesty Poacher's Blend, this wine is typical of traditional Barossa red blends.
St Hallett Gamekeeper’s Shiraz Grenache - unique in its own way like Poacher's Blend - includes a tiny proportion of Touriga Nacional in the mix, giving it a floral and spice finish.

Winery Tasting Notes
Shiraz 50%, Grenach 40% and splash of Touriga Nacional (a traditional Portuguese variety) 10%.
Vibrant and lively plum red with purple hues, which has become the trademark of this youthful exuberant wines.
Lifted floral with generous dark cherry and violets. A spicy rose petal-like infusion from the Touriga Nacional combines to complete the sensory experience.
New world vibrant fresh array of red berry fruits and spice with an underlying old world European earthiness. The spicy pepper of the Shiraz and the generous, gamey, juice raspberry flavours of Grenache finish with soft yet assertive tannins. A judicious plash of Touriga adds lovely red rose petal spice. This is a very food friendly wine, it interplays rather than dominates.
Enjoy with antipasto, smoked meats, game or even a little roast duck - in which the Gamekeeper has been known to indulge occasionally.
Enjoy this wine while young fresh and vibrant.
