St Hallett Gamekeeper's Shiraz 2019 (Barossa Valley)
St Hallett Gamekeeper’s range acknowledges the role of the Gamekeeper in maintaining a healthy balance to a property’s wildlife. Barossa and great Shiraz have become synonymous around the world and St Hallett is committed to both. We produce over one hundred individual parcels of Barossa Shiraz each vintage and then blend to craft individual expressions of this iconic regional variety.
The 2019 St Hallett Gamekeeper's Shiraz is lifted and pretty with lively raspberry and plum fruit characters with a hint of violets. Vibrant juicy red and blue fruits flow across the palate with subtle yet delicious spices of cinnamon and nutmeg. Velvety soft tannins coat the palate with an acid balance that lifts the fruit.
Quality and style wise, Barossa Valley Shiraz shows very good colour, tannin and flavour density. Northern Barossa Valley and Eden Valley Shiraz are spectacular and are expected to be standouts from the vintage.
Gamekeeper’s 2019 vintage saw its Shiraz fruit sourced from several Shiraz vineyards throughout the Barossa region. The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is relatively simple - minimum intervention and maximum attention.
All Shiraz vineyards are crushed and fermented separately. The Shiraz vineyards destined for this wine were fermented between 6 and 8 days at 22 to 24 degrees. Post fermentation the wine was matured in American and French Oak for 6-8 months before being blended and bottled. Winery Notes
