St Hallett Shiraz Barossa Valley Blackwell 2008
St Hallett Winery in Barossa, which was established in 1944, focuses on crafting full-flavoured, textured wines entirely from the region's fruit. St Hallett uses up to a total of 700 hectares of vines allowing for a large diversity of fruit and a variation of techniques for each vintage. As one of the founding wineries of the region, it was named after one of the early surveyors of south Australia in early 19th century, and after an initial start producing fortified wines, it began its experimentation with Shiraz in the 1970s. This Blackwell Shiraz is big and bold, exuding the power and density that the Barossa Valley has to offer. It is a dark mulberry red colour with brooding purple undertones. Lifted dark berries combine with liquorice and rich chocolate to create a very opulent palate. This is a big and powerful Australian New World Barossa Shiraz.
