St Hallett Blackwell Shiraz, Barossa

St Hallett Blackwell Shiraz, Barossa

The grapes are sourced from vineyards planted in the parishes of Ebenezer, Greenock and Seppeltsfield. These parishes are in the north-west of the Barossa Valley at, relatively high, elevations between 250 metres and 310 metres above sea level. Each individual parcel is fashioned separately, employing years of accumulated knowledge of these vineyards and their individual characters. The pump over regime and temperature of the ferment varies across the blocks and can also change with the vintage conditions. Time spent on the skins is typically in the range of 8 to 12 days and the ferment temperatures range from 20 to 30°C. Once the wine is judged to have achieved balance, it is pressed off the skins and goes directly to barrel. The barrel age and the cooperage it comes from is selected for each parcel; this provides complexity and balance in the finished blend. Shows powerful aromas of blackberry, cocoa and nutmeg; the palate is opulent and full-bodied with black forest gateau flavours and an intense long finish.
