Overview

Stuart Blackwell has been a St Hallett winemaker since 1972 and has been fundamental to its success. The classic and rich Barossa Valley Shiraz pays tribute to his foresight, talent and commitment.

As St Hallett’s reserve Shiraz, Blackwell is big and bold. It exudes all the power and brooding density that the Barossa has to offer in Shiraz.

The fruit is picked at full ripeness to gain optimum power and concentration of fruit flavour and a dense, inky colour. Each parcel of Shiraz is individually matched to one of a selection of American oak barrels in which the wine spends two years maturing and gaining considerable texture and power prior to release.

NB: The actual bottle is 375mL

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Trademark brooding characters of Blackwell are on display with notes of dark chocolate, wild blackberry and hints of clove and aniseed.

Palate

Dark cherry and licorice adds to the deep fruit characters. It’s more mineral and textural than previous years and rolls nicely from fruit into spice and cracked pepper. Chalky, coating tannins provide structure and a long finish with lingering pepper.

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.
