Overview

Overview

The Saltram Single Vineyard range was borne of the desire to showcase the diversity and complexity of Shiraz grown in the ancient soils of Barossa.

Sourced from low yielding vineyards, this wine is distinctly varietal with dense colour, lively aromatics and persistent tannins. The palate is richly textured with layers of chalky tannins which provide extraordinary length and persistence, a hallmark of the Angaston Road vineyard.

This wine is only made in small quantities.

Barossa Valley, South Australia

Just one hour’s drive from South Australia’s capital, Adelaide, lies its gourmet capital (and wine Mecca), Barossa. One of the country’s most beautiful and historic wine regions, Barossa is a magnet for lovers of fine food and wine. Its classic Mediterranean climate, and free-draining red brown soils, makes the region ideal for growing grapes. Barossa produces excellent Shiraz, Cabernet, Grenache, Mourvèdre, Riesling and Semillon.

The 2015/2016 growing season was characterised by a very warm and dry late Spring/early Summer period, finishing with a well-timed rainfall event at the end of January followed by mild weather conditions throughout February. These conditions restricted yields and led to high quality fruit potential. Sourced from low yielding vineyards, this wine is distinctly varietal with dense colour, lively aromatics and persistent tannins.

Shavaughn Wells - Winemaker

Shavaughn grew up on a vineyard in Victoria’s Merbein; her grandfather was a winemaker and Managing Director of Mildara Wines. Completing an Oenology degree at the University of Adelaide, Shavaughn followed in her grandfather’s footsteps undertaking her first vintage at Mildara in 1997. Shavaughn is the recipient of a coveted Len Evans Scholarship; and in 2016 she was awarded Australian Winemaker of the Year by Winestate Magazine and was inducted as a Baron of Barossa in 2017.
