icon-award-badge
"No history of the Barossa Valley or the Australian wine industry is complete without the mention of Saltram. Established in 1859 by William Salter & Sons, Saltram wines have a proud 150 Year history of quality winemaking and commitment to the Barossa region. An immigrant from England, William Salter was one of the first people to purchase land in the newly opened land survey known as the Barossa Valley. He built a stone house for his family, naming it Mamre Brook which still stands today at the home of Saltram. Saltram wines have long been known for their richness, intensity and character - whether the wine is fresh bright Riesling or a deep and complex Barossa red." James Halliday 'Dense, opaque purple-crimson; makes no bones about its full-bodied power; 'don't mess with me' is the message of its inky black fruits, licorice and tannins. We will never know how good the wine might have been at 14% alcohol, but you can't ignore the consistency of its message.' 94 points, James Halliday, wine Companion Saltramwines.com.au 3 Gold, 9 Silver & 15 Bronze medals Plush layers of dark fruit flavours from dark cherry to mulberry, plush generous tannins and a finish lingering with liquorice and spice.
