Michael gets all the accolades you'd associate with the more well-known producers around Australia, but that's not really why you're here. What's in the bottle is a spectacular example of progress in Australian wine and especially South Australian Syrah. This Syrah from Eden Valley is medium weight and savoury throughout, balanced with a tight line of acidity and a texture like no other. Recommend drinking with food. - Chris L
Originally from the UK, I released my first vintage of Michael Hall Wines in 2008, bringing my wine dream to fruition after two decades of jewellery valuation in Switzerland. From Europe to the Barossa, I took this leap into the unknown, completing wine science at CSU and working stints in Australia with Cullen, Giaconda, Henschke, Shaw + Smith, Coldstream Hills and Veritas; in France with Domaine Leflaive, Meo-Camuzet, Vieux Telegraphe and Trevallon.
I have identified eight extraordinary vineyard sites across the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley and Adelaide Hills and have since pursued my passion for making thoughtfully produced wines, which provoke thought; individual, small batch, elegant wines made with passive interventions and meticulous attention to detail. For wine nerds, like me. - Michael Hall
