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. It's all about optimum power and concentration of fruit flavour.
"An opulent Barossa Shiraz. It cries out for a juicy steak - do yourself a favour." -- Stuart Blackwell, St Hallett winemaker since 1972

Winery Tasting Notes
Trademark brooding characters of Blackwell are on display with notes of dark chocolate, wild blackberry and hints of clove and aniseed.
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.
Excellent with any cut of red meat including a juicy rib-eye steak on the bone. A wine with the backbone to go well with wintry style dishes and spicy, full flavoured meats such as tender beef in blackbean sauce. After dinner, serve with an aged hard, bitey cheese such as a vintage cheddar.
Cellar carefully for eight to 12 years from vintage.
