With every vintage our winemaking team learn more about the influence of the site on the flavour and quality of the wines.
Stuart Blackwell has been a St Hallett wine maker since 1972 and has been fundamental to its success. This classic and rich Barossa Valley Shiraz pays tribute to his foresight, talent and commitment.
The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is relatively simple - minimum intervention and maximum attention. Each vineyard destined for Blackwell was vinified separately and had skin contact for between six and eight days. The pump over regime was tailored to the individual vineyard parcel. Post-pressing, the wine spent 24 hours in stainless steel before going to barrel for malo-lactic fermentation. Barrels were matched to each parcel to promote harmony and balance during maturation. American Oak was used with a mixture of one to three year old barrels to ensure seamless integration. Winery Notes
