Bringing you the fruit of old Barossa vineyards, which have been handed down from generation to generation, crafted in the traditional old world way, by a commune of family growers who have delivered the most memorable vintages since early settlement. The label says Soul Growers but the harvests were historically bottled by the nation's most illustrious brands. Today, these veteran families of Australian viticulture can bring their princely harvests to market under a moniker that defines a tradition of village winemaking and a culture of reverence for the land. Ancient rootstock Grenache and Mourvedre, bespoke clones of Cabernet and Shiraz, prodigal plots of Pinot Noir. This magnificent range of varietals are all remarkable for their seamlessness, succulence of fruit and velvet tannins. Only the finest old vineyards are considered for admission into the Soul Growers club. Nothing but the top cut of barrel aged wines are worthy of the Soul Growers stamp...

There are fewer than twenty hectares of Stefano Lubiana vines, overlooking the spectacular tidal estuary of Derwent River. Chosen for its felicitious winegrowing aspects, it is a place of scrupulously clean soils, free of any pesticides or manufactured treatments. Insects are welcome here, they are mother nature's endorsement of a holistically biodynamic viticulture. Lubiana is a fifth generation winemaker, one of the apple isle's leading vignerons, he works to an arcane system of seasonal chronometers, governed by cosmic rhythms, the turning of leaves and angle of the moon. His wines are given full indulgence to make themselves. Ferments lie undisturbed and movements to barrel are led by gravity. A peerless expression of vintage, an orphic approach to the winemaker's art, a humbling eloquence of our southernmost.. Celestial wines from southern climes»

St Hallett Old Block Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Barossa Eden South Australia
A national flagship wine, articulating the concordance between the Barossa and Eden Valleys, derived from low yielding vines up to a hundred years of age. The meticulous nurture and respect for these Old Vines demands that parcels are culled throughout the winemaking, from pruning in the vineyard until the final stage of sampling the ageing stocks, to determine the best barrels. Old sites in the warm nether parts of the Barossa establish the rich foundation, whilst higher, cooler aspects of the Eden Valley contribute lifted aromatics and seamless tannins.

Each parcel is crushed into a fermenter and inoculated by select cultures. Each batch is vinified separately at controlled temperatures of 20°C to 24°C. Ferments are managed with pumpovers and drain returns to aerate as much as possible during the early stages, enhancing colour, flavour and tannin extraction. Parcels are pressed off skins into oak before beeing seeded with malolactic, a bacterial culture which converts natural malic acid to lactic acid, softening and stabilising the wine microbiologically. Each parcel is then assigned the most appropriate selection of seasoned and new, ancient French oak forest barrels. After twenty months maturation, the aged stocks are sampled to determine the final assemblage.
Deep crimson red. Powerful lifted aromas of mocha and dark chocolates, intertwined with soft, underlying dark berry fragrances. The palate oozes classic Old Block fruit, swirling the wine in the glass gives that sense of comfort as the enormous brooding complexity edifies. Rich dark fruits, blackcurrant and boysenberry with smooth chocolate textures, sensual tannins and a persistence of flavour. Decant for two to three hours before serving alongside venison or game.
