About The Wine

This might just be the most sought-after release this year from winemaking maestro, Michael Hall.

Made from a tiny block on Mt Torrens, Michael managed to squeeze a minuscule  amount of wine out of this site, but he loves the wine, so it's worth it.

It's elegant, spicy and replete in red fruit. A rare gem and a sensational crack at Shiraz/Syrah from this region.

About Michael Hall

It is Michael Hall's precise and methodical approach to winemaking which has made him stand out in the crowd of Barossa Valley winemakers.

A jewellery valuator in a previous life, his wines ooze class and attention to detail. They focus on small, unique vineyards that produce high-quality fruit. No shortcuts in the winery and an unwavering commitment to quality.

These are classically styled and refined wines designed to speak articulately of the Barossa and the surrounds.

Michael's wines are top shelf.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Sourced from a late ripening site at 480m, the result is a velour of blue and black fruits purring across a carapace of pepper grind acidity and a sheen of perfectly integrated oak. Fully destemmed. And it shows. Smooth. Luxurious. The emphasis is on a detailed textural patina with violet scents reverberating from fore to aft. This is a cool climate expression with the gloss of somewhere warmer."  - Ned Goodwin (Halliday Wine Companion)
