2015 Blackwell Shiraz 3L Jeroboam
2015 Blackwell Shiraz
The full bodied palate has black forest cake flavours and textures of prodigious intensity and persistence. It is opulent, balanced with a certain vitality that will see the wine age gracefully over the years.
The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is about focusing on the fruit and its provenance. Simply minimal intervention and maximum attention . We tailor our winemaking to the individual parcel using the years of accumulated knowledge we have of these vineyards and their individual characters. The pump over regime and temperature of the ferment varies across the blocks and can also change with the vintage conditions. Times on skins is typically in the range of 8-12 days and ferment temperatures range from 20-30 degrees Celsius. Once the wine achieves balance on tasting it is pressed off skins and goes directly to barrel. We match barrels from a number of cooperages and ages to each parcel. We are looking for balance and flavour integration in the wines before we blend them together to create the Blackwell Barossa Shiraz style.
