An astute marketer and talented blender, he also had a keen eye for the land, investing in the ancient John Riddoch fruit colony and planting vines on a challenging site, high atop the lofty latitudes of Valley Eden. Mountadam Vineyards were built from the ground up, with a view to crafting a limited range of well structured, weighty wines, defined by fuller palates and saline, mineral savouryness.

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.

Established 1944 at the very heart of Barossa Valley, the St Hallett wineworks, one of the region's most formidable labels, attracts fruit from the most distinguished growers in the ancient winegrowing hamlets of Kalimna and Ebenezer, Krondorf and Gomersal, Seppeltsfield and Marananga. Shiraz is picked at full ripeness to capture concentration of flavour, vibrant tannin structure and a dense, inky colour. Each parcel is individually crushed and vinified in a collection of old, traditional open fermenters. Upon completion, batches are matched to one of a selection of American oak barrels for two years maturation, gaining considerable texture and power prior to release.
Garnet red colour. Bouquet speaks volumes, dark fruits of brooding intensity, elegant blueberry and mint perfumes, pure opulence expressing the intensity and inky density of the wine. The palate unleashes dense, rich, dark chocolate and a powerful array of dark blackberry fruit flavours. A focused multi dimensional wine of backbone, scope and breadth. Serve with anything, Blackwell matches all good food.
