MASTERS OF THE BAROSSA SHIRAZ
St Hallett Wines represent the very spirit and soul of winemaking in the Barossa
FROM HUMBLE BEGINNINGS
For most of that time, it was owned, or part-owned, by one family, the pioneering Lindners, who arrived in the Barossa from Silesia in 1838. Through grim determination, heartbreak and near financial collapse, the Lindner family managed to make a meagre living – initially from ports and sherries and marsala – in their galvo shed in the middle of the Barossa. More than 70 years from these humble beginnings, St Hallett has established a reputation for making wines with exceptional quality and character.
MASTERS OF SHIRAZ
From the beginning, St Hallett understood the importance of saving old vines and focusing on varieties that thrive in the Barossa region – particularly Shiraz. Over the years, St Hallett has built up a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of vineyard sites and climates in the Barossa. With this, an appreciation for and knowledge of local growers and the finest vines and highest-quality parcels of fruit the Barossa can offer.
AN UNDISPUTED UNDERSTANDING OF THE LAND
The Barossa consists of two distinct regions, Barossa Valley and Eden Valley. These two Valleys provide the St Hallett winemaking team with a diverse tapestry of vineyards to create the finest Barossa wine.
Famous around the world for its premium wines
The diversity of the terroir and the region's levels, combined with its Mediterranean climate, provides the perfect environment to make a range of ultra-premium wines.
The Barossa’s beautiful high country
One of Australia’s premier cool-climate regions identified by its rugged beauty and varied topography. Home to some of the world’s oldest Shiraz and Riesling vineyards.
Ancient landscapes dating back 200 million years
The Barossa is a patchwork of soil types ranging from deep red and brown clay loams on the valley floor to shallow and rocky sandy loams on the eastern and western ridges.
SINGLE SITES, UNIQUE WINES
With every vintage, our winemaking team learns more about the site's influence on the flavour and quality of the wines. Our winemaking philosophy is relatively simple – minimum intervention and maximum attention.
