2015 St. Hallett Faith Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
Faith Shiraz is what most wine writers would refer to as a "good value." We prefer to describe it for what it is -- incredibly good and inexpensive too! Layers of black fruit sneak up on you, and there is just enough pepper to lift but not overwhelm the fruit. The St. Hallett winery was founded in the Barossa nearly 70 years ago . It is a noteworthy producer of wines across the price spectrum, and Faith is at all points happy!

"This is the Shiraz which starts it all for many St Hallett lovers. Our Faith Shiraz is a vibrant and expressive example of Barossa Shiraz. An accessible, juicy and fruit driven wine, Faith's vibrant yet dense purple hue hints at the generosity of fruit within."
"The fruit is harvested during the warmth of the day, brought to the winery, immediately crushed into stainless steel fermenters and inoculated with a neutral yeast strain. Maturation occurs in a combination of new, one, two and three year old French and American oak barrels for 12-16 months before blending and bottling."

$18.9990 WA Australians know Tahbilk produces unique wines. The reds are comparatively reserved and a tad hard edged at the beginning of their lives but really reward the patient, and yes even a wine at this price is cellar worthy. This Shiraz shows us medium-bodied purple fruits, nice tannins, and more development potential, although we certainly wouldn't refuse to imbibe freely right away.
