Together with other established Barossa wineries, St Hallett has long understood the importance of saving old vines and focusing on varieties that not only flourish in the Barossa region but are key to the sustainability of the region – particularly Shiraz.
Strong long-term relationships with focussed and passionate growers give St Hallett access to the Barossa’s most prized vineyards, some of which were planted over 100 years ago.
Over the years, St Hallett has built up a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of vineyard sites and climates in the Barossa, and with this, an appreciation for and understanding of local growers and the finest vines and highest quality parcels of fruit the Barossa can offer.
By tailoring fermentation and maturation to each parcel, St Hallett’s winemaking team reveal the rich textures, depth and diversity of Barossa wine, as it should be.
With every vintage our winemaking team learn more about the influence of the site on the flavour and quality of the wines.
The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is relatively simple – minimum intervention and maximum attention.
