St Hallett Black Clay Shiraz 2017

Named after the cracking (as in to crack, not having a good time) Biscay soils of the Barossa from where these vines are planted. St Hallett have just rolled to the 2018, but there’ll be a bit of this about.

St Hallett, Black Clay, Shiraz,  Barossa, 2017

Darker and seemingly more elemental than your average entry level Barossa shiraz: The earthy black mud comes alive like a golem into the glass. Asphalt, cherry tart, black currant/berry melange with green pepper corn and a touch of lanolin. A smooth palate with lingering dark cherry and forest-jaeger herbs. Happy days here for people seeking decent value for sub $20.

Alc :14.5%
RRP: $15
Rating: 16/20
