A favourite of mine when it comes to reasonably priced Barossa Shiraz. Michael Hall always produces more elegant and restrained wines compared to his counterparts in the Barossa... perhaps because he's a Pinot Noir producer from the Adelaide Hills! Dark blackberry-like fruit, sarsaparilla, spice and iron. Long, full and absolutely satisfying. I recommend pairing it with some protein of your choosing. - 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
