Wine Spectator ReviewRated 89Velvety, open-textured and appealing for its blackberry and tar flavors, hinting at tobacco. The finish sails on. Drink now through 2014.Wine Tasting NotesDark red with purple red hues. Lively lifted cherry raspberry bouquet with chocolate mocha hints. Vibrant dark cherry, raspberry and rich chocolate flavors are balanced with an even, textural palate with smooth and supple tannins. The overall palate effect has good length ofrich ripe fruit and a generosity that is the hallmark of this benchmark Barossa Shiraz.
A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 2006 St Hallett Shiraz Faith 750ml
Crisp and flavorful, with very ripe, almost decadent flavors on an austere frame, this offers plenty of tarry berry character and a smooth, smoky finish. Best from 2000.
Inky violet. Deep blackcurrant and cherry preserve aromas are complemented by cocoa, licorice and candied flowers. Lush, round and sweet, with deep dark berry liqueur flavors and no obvious tannins. Mouthfillings and immediately appealing, with very good finishing cling and length.
100% Barossa Shiraz fermented in small lots then aged 14 months in American oak barrels. Vibrant, spicy red fruits framed by solid oak tannins and lovely finish. ldquo;Like Christmas Puddingrdquo; as the Aussie say.
Spicy and ripe-tasting, itrsquo;s generous with its cranberry-scented plum and anise flavors that linger on the round, mouthfilling finish. Tempting now, but wait until 1999 for the oak to meld.
Therersquo;s far more chocolate cherry fruit concentrated into the center of this wine than at either end mdash; at the moment, the aroma is primary and retiring, the finish quickly fading into to a memory of the wallop of fruit on the palate. While it lasts, the smooth well-upholstered texture is held firmly enough by acidity, and makes the case for a few more years of age.
This great Barossa winery goes from strength to strength. Toby Barlow, fresh from his stunning successes at Mitchelton in Victoria ensures that St Hallett remains one of the most forward looking wineries in Australia. An acknowledged icon of the Barossa, St Hallett Old Block is an elegant and seamless Shiraz widely recognised as world class.Powerful lifted aromas of dark chocolate and mocha are intertwined with a soft, underlying dark berry fragance. The palate shows a restrained elegance and persistence with textured, seamless tannins.
