2015 St Hallett Black Clay Shiraz Barossa Valley Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Black Clay soils are found all round the Barossa Valley and its gives a particularly generous and mouth filling style of Shiraz. This example from 2013 is chock-a-block full of moreish blackberry and leather fruits in a big, bold package. Fleshy and succulent it will drink beautifully over the next 3-5 years but is ready to rock'n'roll for red meat too.

Winemaker's Notes

Black cracking Biscay clay is a common soil type found in the Barossa Valley. The Biscay soils typically produce wines with berry compote and summer pudding flavours, complemented by luscious velvety tannins.


Nose: The nose is dense and packed with berries.

Palate: Voluptuous and smooth, the fruits of the forest and blackberry core extend throughout the palate. The soft tannins frame the wine nicely and complete this classic Barossa Shiraz.

Food: Pork belly.
