Description

St Hallett Old Block Shiraz is one of Barossa’s top Shiraz wines. Toby Barlow, fresh from his stunning successes at Mitchelton in Victoria, has taken over where Matt Gant left off, and ensures that St Hallett remains one of the most forward looking wineries in Australia. It isn’t just Shiraz that rocks their world, and the Poacher’s Blend white (the first vintage was made from grapes ‘stolen’ in lieu of an unpaid bill!) is as racy and fresh as anything in Australia. St Hallett was established in the Barossa Valley in 1944, but the first vintage of Old Block Shiraz was the 1982. However, it was with the 1985 wine, which proved to be an important watershed year for the winery, that the current logo made its entry onto the world stage. The St Hallett labels have remained unchanged ever since. With the “Old Block”, St Hallett chiefly is aiming to produce a consistent style of wine, which reflects the grape variety and its origin. However, this is done with a focused ‘hands-off’ style of winemaking. Much blending and assembling is done before the final product is released. The right cooperage is very important. For instance, pre-2000’s American oak was used, whereas nowadays it is all French oak. The wine normally spends between eight to twenty months in barrel. They are looking for a consistent, multi-layered wine with a silky texture and no raw edges. An acknowledged icon of the Barossa.
