On March 20 1862, Saltram crushed its first grapes and produced 1800 gallons of a wine that was simply called ‘No 1. Shiraz’. Over the years successive vintages of No.1 has won numerous awards at major wine shows across Australia. The secret to this wine's success lies in the extraordinary heritage of old Barossa vines along the eastern fringes of the Valley floor.

Full bodied, plush and mouth filling with savoury, velvety tannins on the pallet. Balanced and complex, exerting multi layered concentrated flavours.

Ned Goodwin, Halliday Wine Companion

A fine oak regime, extrapolated across brimstone, soaring floral scents, purple to blue fruit allusions and a long spicy tail. This is hedonistic, sure, but poised, fresh and delicious. The pH tang part of the equation.
