South Australia's Barossa region is a veritable melting pot of cultures. The name Barossa comes from the Spanish word Barrosa which translates as "reddish"or "muddy" - most likely for the richly red, iron oxide laden soils of the region. The area became a wine region when German immigrants planted vines in 1942. A few years later, St. Hallett was established by the Lindner family. Like many wineries in the region they focused on fortified wine production and were quite successful for many years. Their proverbial eyes wandered and they transitioned into dry table wines and ultimately focused more and more on protecting their well-aged vines by doing what they call, "melding evolution and innovation," as well as matching the fermentation and maturation regime with each parcels specific needs. The area enjoys a myriad of climatic differences, and having spent over a century farming these soils, the folks at St. Hallett have an edge. You'll taste it in the glass.

    Very light - easy to drink. Not as good as Faith by St. Hallett
