Shiraz Barossa + Eden South Australia
St Hallett are an auspicious commune of ancient Barossa grower families and leading, accomplished winemakers. Faith's vibrant yet dense purple hues hint at the generosity of fruit within. A remarkably approachable red wine, immediately upon release, agreeable to all palates, most notably for it's appeal to the novice and connoisseur alike. Sourced from good Barossa vineyards, providing a cross section of flavours, a solid and tightly structured wine, much adored for its distinctive mint and blueberry aromaticness.
Shiraz is sourced from some of the finest Barossa vineyards, sited to superior appellations such as Lyndoch in the south, Koonunga to the north and Valley Eden towards the west. Grapes are harvested throughout the warmth of day, brought to the winery, crushed into fermenters and inoculated with neutral strains of yeast. Following a regime of several pumpovers daily, batches are lightly racked, retaining a measure of the fluffier lees which add weight, texture and savouryness. Following completion of malolactic, components are assembled and treated to extended maturation in a selection of seasoned and new French and American oak barrels. Alcohol 14.5%
Deep red with magenta hues. A vibrant nose of lifted red fruits, cherries and raspberry with underlying chocolates and spice. Delicious red fruits continue onto the palate, combined with hints of milk chocolate and spice notes. A fruit driven juicy front palate is followed by an even, textural experience of smooth and supple tannins, a Barossa benchmark.
