2013 St. Hallett Blackwell Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Tasty dark berries, anise, and a bit of oak make for a great, long, and full quaff. Wants roasted lamb, skirt steak, sauteed onions, lentils, bean dishes and herbs -- you decide the combo!
$29.69 as part of a mixed case.
Sorry, sold out. Next vintage eta pending.
"This is the full bodied, flavour packed Shiraz which made Barossa famous. Named after Senior Winemaker Stuart Blackwell, it's full of dark fruits with brooding intensity. Each parcel of Shiraz is individually matched to one of a selection of American oak barrels in which the wine spends two years maturing and gaining considerable texture and power prior to release."
"95 pts ... Fermented for 6-8 days, 6 pumpovers per day, matured for 18 months in new and used American oak, plus 6 months in bottle. Deep crimson-purple and full-bodied, sultry dark fruits guard the door, prised ajar on the finish by pleasingly edgy tannins and a twist of oak. Sure to flourish in the years ahead. Drink through 2038."

$28.9994 JH Flavors burst happily forth on the mid-palate with dark chocolate and concentrated blackberry in the lead, finishes a long time later with some vanilla, oak, and chocolate reverberations. We want this wine with mushroom stew and German chocolate cake.
