The Spirit and Soul of Barossa comes to Alluvial this June with Palates of St Hallett Wine Dinner
Together with other established Barossa wineries, St Hallett has long understood the importance of saving old vines and focusing on varieties that not only flourish in the Barossa region but are key to the sustainability of the region – particularly Shiraz.
Strong long-term relationships with focussed and passionate growers give St Hallett access to the Barossa’s most prized vineyards, some of which were planted over 100 years ago. Over the years, St Hallett has built up a deep understanding of the rich tapestry of vineyard sites and climates in the Barossa, and with this, an appreciation for and understanding of local growers and the finest vines and highest quality parcels of fruit the Barossa can offer.
By tailoring fermentation and maturation to each parcel, St Hallett’s winemaking team reveal the rich textures, depth and diversity of Barossa wine, as it should be. With every vintage the winemaking team learn more about the influence of the site on the flavour and quality of the wines. The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is relatively simple – minimum intervention and maximum attention.
Over this time, St Hallett has grown and changed and reinvented itself, to achieve a rare distinction as one of Australia’s most respected wine brands. For most of that time it was owned, or part owned, by one family, the pioneering Linders, 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 on from these humble beginnings, St Hallett has established a reputation for making wines with exceptional quality and character.
From the beginning, St Hallett understood the importance of saving old vines and focusing on varieties that thrive in the Barossa region.
