Saltram

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

There is no doubt that Saltram has taken strides towards regaining the reputation it held 30 or so years ago. Grape sourcing has come back to the Barossa Valley for the flagship wines. The red wines, in particular, have enjoyed great show success over the past decade, with No. 1 Shiraz and Mamre Brook leading the charge. Exports to all major markets.

About

No history of the Barossa Valley or the Australian wine industry is complete without the mention of Saltram. In 1844, a recently arrived immigrant from England named 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’ after Abraham’s spiritual home in the book of Genesis.

Mamre Brook house has been a central feature of Saltram throughout its history; a constant link between the present and the past. The fine wines of Mamre Brook are a tribute to the iconic Barossa wine region.

William Salter and Son’s first planted grapes in 1859, and in 1862 produced 8000 litres of a wine appropriately named ‘No.1 Shiraz’. This wine stands proudly today as the flagship Barossa Shiraz from Saltram, highly awarded and respected amongst Australian wine lovers for being a classic statement of intensity and finesse.

For more than 150 years, Saltram has celebrated the tradition and heritage behind the Barossa Valley. Saltram wines have long been known for their richness, intensity and character – whether the wine is a fresh, bright Riesling or a deep and complex Barossa red.
