There are but two winemakers who can lay claim to a staggering four Jimmy Watson Trophy victories. Wolf Blass was the man behind the label. John Glaetzer was the man behind Wolf Blass. While working for Wolf, Glaetzer was moonlighting on his own brand, applying the same extravagance of technique to the pick of Langhorne Creek fruit. Perfection in the form of black bramble fruit, muscular yet affable tannins, all framed by the luxury of ebony oak. Aspirants of the great Black Blass Label fables of 1974, 1975 and 1976, are privately advised to avail themselves of John's Blend, Cabernet or Shiraz. Crafted from the same parcels, in the same way, by the same hands, that collaborated to create, the most celebrated triumphs in the history of our nation's highest accolade, thrice winners of the exalted Jimmy Watson Memorial..

Established 1908, Redman's Coonawarra are still made by the Redman brothers from fruit grown to the original family parcels. The tradition began 1901 when Bill Redman, at the tender age of fourteen, made the journey to take up an apprenticeship at the John Riddoch wineworks and to labour amongst Coonawarra's founding vineyards. Bill Redman's earliest vintages were sold off to other companies but it was not until 1952 that the Redman family released their own wines under the moniker Rouge Homme. Redman was finally branded under its own label in 1966, it remains one of the most enduring marques in Coonawarra. Husbanded by the 4th generation, parcels from the 1966 vines are assembled into the estate flagship The Redman... The velvet virtue of old coonawarra vines»

Experience and evolution, redefining the standards of winemaking excellence while retaining the tradition of Barossa's most distinguished old vineyards

Evolution in the pursuit of excellence has been a consistent thread running through St Halletts history resulting in benchmark wines, recognised around the world as quintessential Barossa. As one of the founding wineries of the region and in the strength, warmth and honesty of its wines, St Hallett has come to be regarded as quintessential Barossa.

St Hallett

In the heart of the Barossa Valley, Australia's best known wine region, lies St Hallett, one of the country's premier wine producers. Established by the Lindner Family in 1944, for many years St Halletts winemaking focus was, like many local wineries, on producing fortified wines. However during the seventies and eighties St Hallett turned to explore the true potential of the Barossa through premium table wines. This has resulted in St Hallett's elevation as one of Australia?s best producers.

St Hallett is renowned for crafting full-flavored, textured wines entirely from Barossa Valley fruit and is credited with producing benchmark wines of the region such as the iconic St Hallett Old Block Shiraz, made from vines aged up to 100 years old. St Hallett's rich heritage and ongoing commitment to Barossa Shiraz is now underpinned by extensive experience and a continuous sense of evolution, attributes personified in winemakers Stuart Blackwell and Matt Gant.

Winemaker and General Manager, Stuart Blackwell spearheaded the commissioning of the new winemaking facilities in 1988 and the installation of some of the world's most advanced fruit processing and handling equipment. Despite this modern approach, traditional winemaking techniques prevail at St Hallett as best suited to the winery's classic style.

St Hallett

St Hallett's commitment to translating the tapestry of soils and meso-climates of the Barossa in each of its wines is made possible by the rich resource of old vines, long-term relationships with growers and the winemakers intuitive understanding of the Barossa.

As Senior Winemaker for over 30 years, Stuart Blackwell has developed a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of site and climatic variances in the Barossa and an appreciation of the importance of both dedicated growers and old vine Shiraz. Strong long-term relationships with focussed and passionate growers give St Hallett access to the Barossa's most prized old vine Shiraz vineyards dating back 60 to over 100 years of age. St Hallett also partners growers to nurture Shiraz on other sites which have unique qualities and comparable long-term potential.

Taking on the reins of evolution, Winemaker Matt Gant seeks to honour this patchwork of differences in vine age, climate and site, by avidly picking and keeping separate over 200 different parcels of Shiraz each vintage. Fermentation and most particularly maturation are then meticulously tailored to suit each parcel.

The diversity of these parcels allows the team to constantly evolve and adapt techniques not only from vintage to vintage but also parcel by parcel and is ultimately critical to the complexity and differentiation of St Hallett's three expressions of Barossa Shiraz, Faith, Blackwell and Old Block.
