The Story

Located in the heart of Australia’s iconic Barossa wine region, St Hallett has been producing great wines since it was established in 1944. All fruit used in the St Hallett wine is grown in the Barossa. The Barossa’s rich and diverse range of vines and soils – that allows them to craft and exciting range of full flavoured and unique textured wines which are savoured around the world and recognised as benchmarks of the region.

St Hallett is dedicated to translating the tapestry of soils and meso-climates of the Barossa wine region in each of its wines. In 2004, it was named ‘Winery of the Year’ by international publication Wine & Spirits.

The Wine

St Hallett Faith is a vibrant and expressive example of Barossan Shiraz with a refined and elegant charm.

An accessible, fruit driven wine, Faith’s vibrant yet dense purple hue hints at the generosity of fruit within. The wine derives exuberant raspberry, cherry and spice flavours from vineyards in the southern part of the Barossa Valley and pepper from its Eden Valley component.

“This is a wine that really gives a good snapshot of the attractiveness of Barossa shiraz. There's plenty of blackberry, some redder-tinged fruits too, a little tarry nuance and a bright, fresh plum note too – the oak is quite unobtrusive here. The palate has a terrific density and ripeness to it, flowing fleshy and soft fruit, easygoing tannins and lingering bright plum and blackberry flavour.” - Good Wine Guide 2013

“Deep purple-crimson; a medium- to full-bodied wine awash with red and black fruit, principally cherry, abundant ripe tannins and enough oak; has balance and length.”James Halliday, 2012

“Blackberries explode from the glass. Rich, juicy core with savoury notes.” - Decanter World Wine Awards, 2012

Tasting Note: Peppery and floral fragrance lifted by fresh cedar/chocolate oak and backed by grenache-like nuances of blueberry. Creamy, gentle and brightly lit with vibrant fruit. A firmish backbone that finishes fruit-laden, soft and lingering.
