More information on wine critics and ratings

The "Halliwell" (meaning "masterful") Shiraz Grenache comprises 100% Barossa fruit, the "Halliwell" Grenache comes from the Rolf Binder prize "Western Ridge" vineyard on the edge of the Marananga bowl. The Shiraz is estate grown from the "Stephanie" vineyard, combined with small batches from neighbouring vineyards.

"What first strikes you with the bouquet of this wine is the abundance of glass filling berry fruit aromas. The subtle use of both old and new oak combined with soft tannins comes through on the palate. Strong full bodied characters last right through to the back of the palate and certainly linger, leaving your mouth wondering what was that truly sublime experience?

Before you know it you’re tasting more. This wine will drink well now, showing off its ripe fruit characters. It will cellar for up to 6 years and reward you with a fully integrated wine fruit showing the benefits of age." - Rolf Binder

Their parents arrived in Australia in 1950 – just 2 amongst the many post-war immigrants from Europe and met a grape grower in the Barossa while working to help pay for their assisted passage. From such unlikely beginnings, a passion for the Barossa was born, a winery was purchased and a new life began. They soon came to appreciate the riches of the Barossa – the old vine Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache and were at the forefront of many old vine varietal blends. Now Christa and Rolf… Read more

James Halliday (JH) : 92 Points (2013)
Grenache is the minor partner at 30%, but aromatically it calls the tune with the bouquet redolent of its spicy, savoury characters. Shiraz comes into play on the palate with fleshy berry flavours and the provision of the structure to keep everything in place. A one-paced ride perhaps, but a comfortable and enjoyable one.

James Suckling (JS) : 90 Points (2012)
January, 2015. Full of peppermint and Australian olive-butter character, well harmonized with fresh red fruits and oak. Good finesse and a long, elegant finish. Drink now or in 2015.

Robert Parker (RP) : 89 Points (2010)
Blended of 75% Shiraz and 25% Grenache the 2010 Halliwell Shiraz Grenache is deep garnet-purple in color and displays expressive notes of spiced blackberries and crushed blueberries with hints of vanilla, chocolate and aniseed. Medium to full-bodied, it has plenty of ripe, forward blackberry and baking spice flavors, is structured by a medium level of velvety tannins and crisp acid before finishing long. Drink it now to 2017.
