An acknowledged icon of the Barossa, St Hallett Old Block is an elegant and seamless Shiraz. Derived from old vine Shiraz of 60 to 100 years of age, it is widely recognised as world class. A wine to cellar and savour.
Old Block is seamless, understated and elegant but not to be underestimated. This wine is at the very soul of the Barossa - growers & winemakers working together to extract the very most from the ancient vines aged up to 100 years old. The wine showcases the harmony to be found between Barossa’s two valley sub-regions. A supple, sexy and textural expression of Shiraz. St Hallett's best.
NOTES: Good rain during a cool December proved valuable to vineyards which then experienced two bursts of extreme heat in mid and late January 2009. Excellent ripening conditions followed this for the rest of our harvest. The first of our old vine Shiraz parcels was harvest. The first of our old vine Shiraz parcels was harvested on 6th March. The opulence of our old vine Barossa Valley Shiraz was well balanced wi†h the higher altitude Eden alley old vine Shraz parcels, which showed great fragrance and structure. Careful French oak barrel selection, patience and blending has created a 2009 Old Block Shiraz with lifted floral and spicy aromas and classic Old Block palate texture; a fine wine with power and poise.
