Winemaker's Notes:

Every Poacher needs a Gamekeeper! The companion to our bright and zesty Poacher's Blend, this wine is typical of traditional Barossa red blends. St Hallett Gamekeeper's Shiraz Grenache - unique in its own way like Poacher's Blend - includes a tiny proportion of Touriga Nacional in the mix, giving it a floral and spice finish.

About St Hallett:

As one of the founding wineries of the region and in the strength, warmth and honesty of its wines, St Hallett has come to be regarded as quintessential Barossa.

In the heart of the Barossa Valley, Australia's best known wine region, lies St Hallett, one of the country's premier wine producers. Established by the Lindner Family in 1944, for many years St Hallett's winemaking focus was, like many local wineries, on producing fortified wines. However, during the seventies and eighties, St Hallett turned to explore the true potential of the Barossa through premium table wines. This has resulted in St Hallett's status as one of Australia’s best producers.

St Hallett is renowned for crafting full-flavored, textured wines entirely from Barossa Valley fruit and is credited with producing benchmark wines of the region such as the iconic St Hallett Old Block Shiraz, made from vines aged up to 100 years old.

Winemaker and General Manager, Stuart Blackwell spearheaded the commissioning of the new winemaking facilities in 1988 and the installation of some of the world's most advanced fruit processing and handling equipment. Despite this modern approach, traditional winemaking techniques prevail at St Hallett as they are best suited to the winery's classic style.
