"Fresh crimson-purple; the quality of the fruit filling the bouquet transposes directly to the medium- to full-bodied palate, in turn brimming to overflowing with luscious but not overripe fruit. The finish is the high point of the wine, bringing all the best characters together." 2012 Australian Wine Companion
"Colour: Ruby red with an attractive purple hue. Bouquet: Lifted floral spice with fresh red fruits and early picked blackberry. Palate: The palate is bright, vibrant and layered. The fruit shows great depth and restrained power with prevailing elegance. The old vines show themselves in the complexity and texture with fine grain tannins providing precise structure. The palate is long and finishes with dense dark fruits. Cellaring: Those with the patience to cellar it will be rewarded with 2009 expected to drink well to at least 2029. Food Pairings: Aged beef, venison or slow roasted lamb."

Say hello to greatness in this St. Hallett Old Vine Shiraz mates! Serve it with sausage and parmesan-stuffed mushrooms, and just feel the happy blossom... This shockingly good Shiraz boasts rich, dark fruit, some gorgeous spice notes, but most notably, a gorgeous finish that just goes on and on. These stellar characteristics combine to make it a great choice with grilled meats, rich pastas, sausage, barbecue and more. If you've got some time on your hands, or are doing takeout, we love the gorgeous fruit of this Blackwell with Peking duck. The hoisin sauce will showcase the fruit in the wine, and when you wrap the duck, scallions and cucumber in the pancake, they will bring out its spice notes. Sticky, tangy-sweet ribs will not soon be forgotten with this St. Hallett. The medium-full body and layered palate of this Barossa Valley Shiraz is perfect for grilled lamb kebabs with mint pesto if you're looking for a quick meal. And if pasta is what you're craving, we love this Aussie red with a hearty eggplant lasagna. Give everyone a moment and then open another bottle. It will close the evening beautifully with a smoked Gouda cheese. You'll be happy you did.
