Carrying an 'Excellent' Langton's Classification, the focus for this wine is to showcase the rare and ancient vines of the Barossa. To qualify for Old Block, vineyards must be planted on their own rootstock and be over 40 years old.
The wine was first released in 1994, in honour of Stuart Blackwell, winemaker for more than three decades and a tireless contributor to the St Hallett story.
A contemporary classic and a crowd favourite since 1994. Faith Shiraz is a vibrant and expressive example of Barossa Shiraz.
This range is designed to tell the story of Tanunda’s Blockheads to a new generation, with the fruitful drinkability of contemporary Australian Shiraz.
The winery began in 1944 with modest ambitions for the future and an agricultural attitude to winemaking. Its evolution to become a jewel in the crown of Barossa wineries has mirrored that of the region itself.
The winemaking philosophy is simple-minimum intervention and maximum attention.
