2012 Old Block Shiraz

2012 Old Block Shiraz

Old Block Club Exclusive

98 point Halliday wine and the flagship Old Block Shiraz, the 2012 is the St Hallett collector’s prize wine. Drinks perfectly now but will continue to cellar and develop for up to 25 years.

September 2011 was cool and cloudy, which led to slow budburst and shoot growth. This was followed by dry and warmer conditions in October allowed the vines to catch up after their slow start. Overall below average crops were evident in December, but this proved to be a vintage of quality over quantity. January and February continued the trend of below average temperatures, yet harvest commenced two weeks earlier than most years. The pace of the 2012 vintage was unusually calm due to the steady, staggered ripening and lower yields.
