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.

"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
Deep red with magenta hues.
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.
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.
