The original European settlers in the Barossa township of Tanunda, where St Hallett winery resides, were known as Blockheads. The origins of the Blockhead name are most commonly linked to their stoic, square jawed character and dedication to the land. At the winery, and amongst their descendants, the title is worn as a badge of honour.
The Blockhead range is designed to tell their story to a new generation, combining 74 years of St Hallett winemaking expertise with the fruitful drinkability of contemporary Australian Shiraz.

On the nose
Deep red with violet hues
On the palate
A round and supple palate full of juicy raspberry and blackberry fruit, supported by a lively acidity that brings a vibrancy to the wine. It finishes with fine, soft tannin and waves of toasted oak. The Blockhead range is characterised by its approachability and soft, lush and generous palate.
Product Notes
The St Hallett winemaking philosophy is relatively simple - minimum intervention and maximum attention. Shorter but more frequent pumpovers were used for gentle extraction of colour and tannin while maintaining the temperature at 24˚C. Malolactic fermentation and maturation was completed with American Oak, adding complexity by lifting the Shiraz characters and adding a Vanilla thread to the wine.
