St Hallett Blackwell Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa South Australia
Blackwell is sourced exclusively from sloped vineyards around the north and west of Barossa Valley, precincts which yield small harvests of exceptionally concentrated Shiraz grapes. The focus is on preserving freshness and purity of these extraordinarily intense, dark fruit expressions, while retaining perfect tannin balance in the finished wine. The northern hamlets of Kalimna and Ebenezer contribute juicy dark fruit and rich mocha flavours, while parcels from western districts such as Seppeltsfield give Blackwell it's muscular, brooding structure.
