“Michael Hall is one of the best producers in the country…he makes exquisitely tailored wines as a matter of course”

Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front.

Join us for a tasting journey through the exquisite wines of Michael Hall alongside bottles from the celebrated French producers Domaine Leflaive, Domaine Méo-Camuzet, Domaine du Vieux Télégraphe and Domaine Rostaing, producers close to Michael’s heart from his years as an itinerant winemaker in 2005-2008.
And with Shiraz being a firm piece of the puzzle, we have chosen to delve into the world of René Rostaing who impressed Michael in 2006 during vintage in the Rhone. His wines of the Northern Rhône provide an alter-ego in our quest for perfection in Australian Syrah.

These estates were the inspiration that sparked a journey from the winter chill of Switzerland and early years in the jewellery trade to a new life as an emerging producer of highly-regarded South Australian wines. His final destination? The Barossa Valley. With its climate mirroring that of the southern Rhone and within striking distance of Eden Valley and the Adelaide Hills this was the perfect home for a new generation of Australian wines.

“His CV of vintage of work in Australia and France is a veritable who’s who of producers…The wines are as impressive as his experience suggests they should be.”

James Halliday, Wine Companion.
