The name, the magnum and the alcohol level all suggest a full-bodied wine dripping with extract of fruit, tannins and oak. Yet it is none of those things; it is elegant, perfectly balanced, its black cherry/blackberry fruits with a finely pitched savoury edge. A superb wine. Drink to: 2043; Price: $210.00; Date Tasted: Feb 2019; Alcohol: 15%; Rating: 98 Points; James Halliday; The Weekend Australian

A nod to the traditional, full-bodied Barossa Valley shiraz style, this has a rich array of blackberry, blackcurrant, earth, lead-pencil and beef-stock aromas with a strong, tarry thread, too. The palate has such a bold, full-bodied style that is saturated with blackberries and really intense, bold tannins. Big, delicious and balanced. Northwestern Barossa sourcing here. Magnums only, this is custom made for collectors and cellaring. Try from 2026. Rating: 96 Points; James Suckling

1500ml. Very dark, saturated purple/red/black colour, with a similarly concentrated aroma of tar, blackberry, herbs, machine-oil and graphite, with a generous component of smoky char oak. The wine is very full-bodied and dense, concentrated, chewy textured and long, with masses of supple tannins. This is a whopper, with a huge future ahead of it. Drink: 2022 to 2038; Price: $210.00; Alcohol: 15%; Rating: 96 Points; Huon Hooke; The Real Review

Exclusively in magnum. From 25yo vines northern Barossa. Matured in seasoned American oak barrels. True to name, the mighty northern Barossa comes alive with depth and impact. Yet, crucially, this boasts the lift, detail and precision that set the modern St Hallett apart. Full, vibrant purple, it brims with crunchy blackberries, black cherries and satsuma plums, laced with exotic spice. Refreshing acidity and enduring fine-grained tannins complete a long finish. Drink to: 2048; Price: $210.00; Rating: 96 Points; Tyson Stelzer
