St Hallett 2019 Old Block Shiraz


St Hallett Old Block Shiraz has been an Australian classic for over four decades: a wine of power and poise; palate weight and precision. With fruit from some seriously old vines in play, this is an outstanding red from a contrary dry vintage that resulted in Barossa wines that are seriously rich and concentrated. This has a plenty of dark and spicy flavours but also finishes soft and smooth. It could be paired with rare roast beef and Yorkshire pudding right now, but will certainly cellar for a decade or two for those who prefer their reds more mature. $160.
