Introducing the inaugural Triple Treats three pack! This pack contains 3 x 750ml 2018 St Hallett Old Block Shiraz.
Since its inception in 1980, the focus for Old Block has been to showcase the rare and ancient vines of the Barossa. To qualify for Old Block Shiraz, vineyards must be planted on their own rootstock and be older than 40 years of age.
These ancient vines produce small crop levels, resulting in seamless wines of complexity and longevity
This wine has intense ruby colour with purple hues. A complex and elegant nose with hints of dark fruits, rich dark chocolate and cinnamon spice. A vibrant and elegant wine on the palate, it offers rich fruit notes of satsuma and damson plums with layers of rich dark chocolate, and complex spices of cinnamon, cedar oak with hints of black pepper and nutmeg. The wine has a long and well-defined acid backbone, with a harmonious and long finish.
FOOD MATCH- Aged eye fillet
PEAK DRINKING - Will reward careful cellaring for 20+ years
Langton's Classified Excellent
97 Points - The Vintage Journal "Deep crimson. Glossy and polished with beautiful blackberry, dark cherry inky, graphite aromas with mocha/ dark chocolate notes. Well balanced wine with lovely pure blackberry pastille, dark cherry fruits, fine slinky tannins, very good mid palate richness and attractive roasted chestnut complexity. Finishes cedar/ claret firm and juicy. A very expressive but not overly powerful Barossa Shiraz with the definition and torque for long term aging. All the elements in balance but keep for a while to allow the fruit, acidity, tannin and oak to fold. Average age of vines is 96 years. Drink 2025 – 2040 14.5% alc"
95 Points - The Real Review"Deep red with a tinge of purple, very good colour for its age; it has a reserved nose of savoury developing aromas, a trace of dried spices, the palate soft and round, with mellow red fruit flavours, deliciously supple and fleshy, with a nice touch of sweet fruit at the heart, beautifully harmonised with fine grained tannins. Long carry. Lovely drinking now and for several years hence."
