Wine Summary Image

Provenance: ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

In 1859 William Salter cleared 10 acres of land at his Mamre Brook homestead near Angaston in the Barossa and planted Shiraz. On March 20 1862, Saltram crushed its first grapes and produced 1800 gallons of a wine that was simply called ‘No 1. Shiraz’.

Over the years successive vintages of No.1 has won numerous awards at major wine shows across Australia. The secret to this wine's success lies in the extraordinary heritage of old Barossa vines along the eastern fringes of the Valley floor.

Saltram No. 1 Shiraz stands proudly as one of the great Australian red wines and as one of the truly great Barossa Shiraz wines.

Expert Reviews

95 points, James Halliday - Wine Companion

Excellent red-purple colour; a clean, rich, round and full bouquet is followed by a luscious and rich palate, full of black cherry and chocolate fruit, oak and tannins. At the big end of town, and will richly repay extended cellaring. Trophy winner 2001 Barossa Wine Show and gold medal 2001 Great Australian Shiraz Challenge.

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

In the 1860s, the Salters made a rich, full-bodied shiraz called Number One Shiraz, from the first vines planted on their Angaston property in the Barossa Valley.

Our premium Barossa Shiraz has taken the name of this original wine. Made from premium Barossa fruit, this full-bodied, complex wine shows riper berry fruit with hints of licorice and black pepper. An intense wine of strong regional character, it will develop for at least 10 years in the bottle.

The History

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 still stands today as the spiritual home of Saltram. William Salter and Son's first planted grapes in 1859 and in 1862 produced 8000 litres of a wine appropriately named ‘No.1 Shiraz'. Saltram's wines have long been renowned for their richness, intensity and character - from a bright young Semillon to a deep and complex Barossa Shiraz.

'Mamre Brook' the famous house behind the range of wines of the same name, collected the coveted Stodart trophy in 2003 at the Brisbane Wine show. Many of Australia's most influential and celebrated winemakers have passed through Saltram's cellar doors throughout its history.

The Winemaker Shavaughn Wells

After studying Oenology at Adelaide University's famous Roseworthy Campus, Shavaughn graduated in 1998.

After years of working for famous wineries including Yelloglen, Yarra Ridge, St Hubert's and Wolf Blass, Shavaughn began working on Saltram red wines in 2005, alongside Barossa legend Nigel Dolan. Shavaughn believes the Barossa is such a fascinating place to work with Shiraz. "The unique expression of each sub region allows us to craft wines which truly reflect the Barossa's distinctive character."

Saltram's long history in the Barossa has created its unique house style of wines displaying concentration and intensity. Shavaughn recognises the privilege of being a part of Saltram, which has been a significant contributor to the Australian wine industry since 1859.

In recognition of Shavaughn's passion and understanding of Australian and international wine styles she was awarded a coveted Len Evans Scholarship in 2008.

Cellar Condition

Provenance; “Place of origin; derivation”

  • The history of the ownership of an object, especially when documented or authenticated. Used for Artworks, Antiques, and Wine.

Whenever you buy wine there is an inherent risk, as wine is a perishable good regardless of whether it is sealed under cork or screwcap. At GraysOnline we minimise the risk to you by providing as much information as possible regarding the provenance of the wine we sell.

We take the time to individually inspect each bottle and photograph it so you know exactly what you are buying. All Private Cellar wine stored at GraysOnline is kept in a temperature controlled wine storage area. Any wine that doesn’t meet our quality standards will not be sold.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 5 star designation are recognised as being of proven quality provenance, our team has verified that the wine has been stored correctly from original purchase straight from the winery, documentation, where possible, has been sighted and cellaring conditions have been inspected. This wine generally comes from only the best and most respected of wine collectors in Australia.

★ ★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 4 star designation have been cellared correctly as verified by the current owners. In general these wines have been purchased from retailers or traders and stored in cellared conditions from original purchase.

★ ★ ★

Wines displaying a 3 star designation are in good condition when we inspect and we are able to confirm some cellaring conditions but we are unable to verify all ownership and storage conditions of their history.

A wine displaying no stars doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the wine, it simply means that we have been unable to verify provenance, however a quality image is always available for the purchaser to make their own purchasing decisions.

Private Cellar wine is wine which has been stored for aging purposes in a Private Cellar.

Storing the wine and allowing it to age has the potential to improve the quality of the wine. While wine is perishable and capable of deteriorating, storing the wine can alter the aroma, colour, mouthfeel and taste of the wine in a way that may be more pleasing to the taster.
