    Winemaker's Notes:

    An acknowledged icon of the Barossa, St. Hallett Old Block is an elegant and seamless Shiraz widely recognized as world class. It is derived purely from low cropping old vines of 60 to over 100 years of age.

    Color: Deep garnet red

    Bouquet: The bouquet is indicative of the 2003 vintage characteristics. The dry winter delivered forward powerful aromas with expectations of a concentrated palate to follow. The bouquet has coffee mocha notes and a particularly dense mineral core, finished by an atypical cherry raspberry lift.

    Palate: The hallmark of Old Block Shiraz is its elegance and while that is inherent, the 2003 vintage is showing a slightly atypical power in its youth. This will ultimately evolve to a supple yet assertive vinatge of this classic Barossa icon.

    Serving suggestions: Decant the wine 2-3 hours prior to serving. Excellent with rich venison or other game dishes, powerful reduction sauces and carmelized onions and parsnips.

    Cellaring: Will evolve over the next 12 years and will probably peak in 12-15 years
