St. Hallett's Old Block Shiraz is a special wine; this is a less expensive Barossa Shiraz meant for every day consumption.
Very deep and dark. Enticing aromas of blackberries, coffee, flowers. And same on the palate. This wine has seen plenty of oak, and that is a good part of its attraction. Very ripe but with firm tannins in the middle to give it a serious tone. A friendly, juicy finish. For $14 to $16, this is a good Australian Shiraz, drinking beautifully right now.
