First produced in 1980, St Hallett Old Block is made from the best available Old Vine Shiraz from both the Barossa and Eden Valleys. 2016 Old Block is an elegant, seamless full-bodied wine complete with a silky palate and immaculate oak. Layers of dark cherry, blackberries, anise and white pepper slowly unfolds across the palate. The acid and tannin are in perfect balance which is reflected in the cellaring potential below.
The 2016 vintage consists of 51% Barossa Valley, 49% Eden Valley fruit.

"As magnificently rich and deeply flavoured as expected. Blackberry and blackcurrant, then a move to licorice, onto cedary oak and supple tannin providing texture and structure." James Halliday 01 August 2020
