St. Hallett Blackwell Barossa Shiraz 2009
James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion: Rated as Outstanding. Wines of the highest quality, usually with distinguished pedigrees."Deep purple-crimson; an outstanding vintage for Blackwell, with a wonderful mix of intense black and red berry fruits, licorice and mocha oak; good as the flavours are, so is the tapestry of the texture of the wine, finely worked and balanced." Aug 2011
Winery: "As St Hallett's reserve Shiraz, Blackwell is big and bold. It exudes all the power and brooding density that the Barossa has to offer in Shiraz. The fruit is picked at full ripeness to gain optimum power and concentration of fruit flavor and a dense, inky color."
Wired For Wine: Say hello to greatness in this St. Hallett Blackwell Barossa Shiraz mates! Serve it with sausage and parmesan-stuffed mushrooms, and just feel the happy blossom... This shockingly good Shiraz boasts rich, dark fruit, some gorgeous spice and oak notes, but most notably, truly memorable, beautiful texture and a big, powerful personality. All of these stellar characteristics combine to make it a great choice with grilled meats, rich pastas, sausage, barbecue and more. No kidding here, James Halliday recommends this powerhouse red with venison and kangaroo filet. Worth a try we say. If you've got some time on your hands, or are doing takeout, we love the gorgeous fruit of this Blackwell with Peking duck. The hoisin sauce will showcase the fruit in the wine, and when you wrap the duck, scallions and cucumber in the pancake, they will bring out its spice notes. Sticky, tangy-sweet ribs will not soon be forgotten with this St. Hallett. The mocha oak of this Barossa Valley Shiraz is perfect for grilled lamb kebabs with mint pesto if you're looking for a quick meal. And if pasta is what you're craving, we love this Aussie red with a hearty eggplant lasagna. Give everyone a moment and then open another bottle. It will close the evening beautifully with a smoked Gouda cheese.
