Overview

St Hallett Faith is a vibrant and expressive example of Barossan Shiraz.

An accessible, fruit driven wine, Faith’s vibrant yet dense purple hue hints at the generosity of fruit within. The wine derives exuberant raspberry, cherry and spice flavours from vineyards in the southern part of the Barossa Valley and pepper from its Eden Valley component.

Expert Reviews

"Deep purple-crimson; a medium- to full-bodied wine awash with red and black fruit, principally cherry, abundant ripe tannins and enough oak; has balance and length." Rating 93 - James Halliday Australian Wine Companion 2013

"Charmingly smooth and soft, this old-fashioned ‘Australian burgundy’ style reveals a sweet, peppery and floral fragrance whose scents of cassis, raspberries and redcurrants are lifted by fresh cedar/chocolate oak and backed by grenache-like nuances of blueberry. It’s polished and creamy, gentle and brightly lit with vibrant fruit, with a firmish but very pliant backbone that finishes fruit-laden, soft and lingering. "Rating 91 - Jeremy Oliver, www.jeremyoliver.com.au (24/AUG/2012)

"With a blast of dark berries and some subtle oak richness to start, this is lovely rich Barossa shiraz exuding a mouthful of succulent spicy plummy flavour with a fair bit of black tea-like lining and a determination in the mouth that suggests you might want to buy a few and stick them in the cellar."4 Stars - Tony Love, Daily Telegraph (JUL/2012)

"A refined and elegant number. Beautifully lifted fresh blackcurrant aromas and very polished blackcurrant palate thats fresh and bright with great acid/oak balance."4.5 Stars - Winestate (OCT/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep red with magenta hues.

Aroma

A vibrant nose of lifted red fruits of dark cherry and raspberry, with underlying spices and chocolate. The depth and juicy character this wine exhibits is the essential hallmark of the 2010 vintage.

Palate

The enticing dark cherry and juicy raspberry notes from the notes from the nose continue onto the palate. A silky, textural sensation of smooth tannins follows with a chocolate and black forest fruit persistence. This generous wine displays why it has established itself as a benchmark Barossa Shiraz.

Cellaring Potential

Enjoy now or make room in your cellar. 2010 Barossa Shiraz is stunning.

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.
