Region Eden Valley

The Eden Valley is a cool and elevated sub-region of the Barossa situated in the Barossa Range to the east, overlooking the Barossa Valley. Low water availabilty, high altitude and strong winds make site selection in the region very important . The vineyeard soils are derived from schistic and sedimentary rock and are comprised mostly of red clay and sandy, silty loams interspersed with schistic gravels. The Eden Valley is renowned for its floral talc scented Rieslings and vibrant fruit pure Shiraz. Cool climate Chardonnay also performs well as does Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.

Winery ST. HALLETT

The Lindner Family established St Hallett in the heart of the Barossa Valley near Tanunda in 1944. After a relatively sleepy beginning producing fortified wines, the winery restructured its ownership. The rumbustious pioneering energy of Barossa legend Bob McLean during the 1980s and 1990s saw an extraordinary metamorphosis. Stuart Blackwell, St Hallett’s winemaker since 1972 oversaw the development of Langton's Classified 'Excellent' St Hallet Old Block Shiraz, perhaps one of the most successful ultra-fine Barossa Shirazes and an early cult-type wine. Alongside Old Block, St Hallett makes a range of wines that consistently over-deliver including the classic reserve style Blackwell Shiraz.
