How's it taste?
COLOURA rich, deep crimson red, with vibrant hues.NOSEComplex layers of blackberry, fine cocoa and hints of baking spices gently elevate from the glass.PALATEAn opulent and elegant Barossa Shiraz with complex flavours of blackberry and black forest, followed by waves of cocoa and baking spice on the middle palate. The supple tannins are well polished, persistent, and perfectly complement the American oak. This brilliantly structured, full-bodied and balanced wine will reward careful cellaring in years to come.PEAK DRINKING2031 – 2036FOOD MATCHBarbecued medium rare dry-aged scotch fillet.
How was it made?
‘The wine was first released in 1994, in honour of Stuart Blackwell, winemaker for more than three decades and a tireless contributor to the St Hallett story. The fruit is sourced predominately from Northern Barossa with the red brown clay soils creating wines with hallmark characteristics of black plum, cherries and dark chocolate’, Helen McCarthy, Chief Winemaker.Blackwell Shiraz is consistently sourced from vineyards in the parishes of Ebenezer, Greenock and Moppa Hills. Individual parcels are harvested and treated as single batches in the winery. The fruit was destemmed and transferred to various sized fermenters based on the batch size. Yeast selection, pump over regime and ferment temperature varied, based on the characters of the block with fermentation typically around 24 - 26°C and time on skins between 10 and 12 days. Malolactic fermentation took place in the fermenter. After pressing, the parcels were filled to American oak barrels, where they matured for 12-16 months.

Deep crimson. Fragrant star anise, elderberry, blackberry aromas with underlying spicy/ roasted walnut, cigar box notes. Well concentrated but compact with blackberry redcurrant fruits, vigorous fine chalky /al dente tannins, plentiful cedar/ vanilla oak notes and persistent acidity. Finishes firm and drying with bitter-sweet notes. Still elemental. 14.5% alc Drink 2023-2030

93 Points by Ray Jordan in the The West Australian on 2/1/2022Recognises the significant contribution of St Hallett legendary former winemaker Stuart Blackwell. There is almost an initial prettiness about this wine from the seductively aromatic perfumes aromas of violet and plum through to a palate that is generous but admirably restrained. The tannins have a minerally chalky feel, providing clear focus and precision. The oak is balanced and the fruit characters persist. Like it as a cellaring wine. (Best drinking: Now to 2037)
