2015 St Hallett The Reward Cabernet Sauvignon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The Reward from industry stalwarts, St Hallet, is their more restrained offering if you are looking for something that isn't a body-builder style. Smells of black fruits and leafiness rise from the glass, whilst the palate is medium-bodied and graceful, with tastes of blackcurrants and After Eight mints, talcy but evident tannins, and a decent, juicy finish. Drink over the next decade, or give it some air, and cook up a beef stew.

Winemaker's Notes

The Inspiration: With every vintage our winemaking team learn more about the influence of the site on the flavour and quality of the wines. In the best vintages, the low yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vines of the Barossa Valley produce exceptional fruit with velvety richness, supple tannins and a potential for ageing. The Reward Cabernet is only made in these great years.

Bouquet: Seductive varietal aromas of blackberry leaf with lifted bright purple fruits.

Palate: The balanced, even textured palate opens with blackberries before finishing with notes of dark chocolate and mint. Powdery tannins coat the mouth and linger for a long finish.

Vegan friendly.

Tyson Stelzer (2010 Vintage) says
Prepare for the unexpected: Barossa cabernet that outdoes most shiraz from this remarkable season, and from a warm site, at that! Early picking captures epic concentration, striking harmony and fragrance.
