/ Barossa / SouthAustralia
In 1859 William Salter and his son Edward founded the firm W. Salter & Son, which has since evolved into the baronial Saltram label. To celebrate 150 years of winemaking, an extremely limited amount of very rare old tawny from the 1959 vintage has been released. Only 1859 bottles were made to coincide with Saltram's founding year. This eternal wine is drawn from a single growing season, but unlike most vintage fortifieds which have been aged in bottle, Saltram Vintage Rare Tawny has been kept in oak barrels for fifty years to achieve its peerless style.

Shiraz / Barossa / SouthAustralia
Saltram No.1 is one of the nation's great icon reds, a powerful expression of Australian Shiraz. In 1859 William Salter cleared ten 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. For the next thirty years, successive vintages of No.1 performed brilliantly at Australian and International wine exhibitions. The secret to the success lies in a heritage of extraordinary old Barossa vineyards.

Shiraz / Barossa + Eden / SouthAustralia
Some of Australia's most influential winemakers have passed through the Saltram cellar door during the estate's 150 years. Three generations of Salters made wine until 1937, the Dolans of Pepperjack fame took over the reins in the 1950s, producing many of Saltram's most memorable vintages. Mamre Brook is the original Salter family homestead, built in 1844 near the village of Angaston. Shiraz is sourced from mature Barossa vineyards and fashioned into the enduring Mamre Brook style of penetrating brambleberry flavours over fragrant vanilla oak.

The eminent Dolan family, twice Jimmy Watson winners, crafted many of Mamre Brook's most memorable vintages. A fully aromatic Cabernet, perfumed with new French vanilla oak, endowed by a cornucopia of ripely spiced berry flavours.
 
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 Abrahams spiritual home in the book of Genesis. Mamre Brook House still stands today as the spiritual home of Saltram. William Salter and Sons first planted grapes here in 1859, and in 1862 produced 8000 litres of a wine appropriately named No.1 Shiraz. In the history of Saltram there have only been eight senior winemakers, two families dominate the list, Salter and Dolan. Three generations of Salters made wine until 1937, and the Dolan's have played a part at Saltram from the 1950s through until today.

 Saltram

The Barossa Valley is actually a long plain that sits at an average of 230m elevation, with small hills on the western side and the steeper Barossa Hills leading toward the higher Eden Valley on the east. The region includes the towns Nuriootpa, Tanunda, and Angaston. Saltram is situated on Nuriootpa Road just a kilometre from the town of Angaston. The soils of the Barossa are predominantly red brown loams, which are non-cracking, well structured and relatively free draining - making them ideal for growing grapevines.

Saltram draws fruit from its own 45 hectare Saltram Vineyard that surrounds the Saltram Winery and Cellar Door as well as from other vineyards throughout the region. These vineyards are spread over from the cooler hills of the Eden Valley to the warmer areas across the valley floor. The Saltram Vineyards yield many different varietals, the vast majority are planted to Shiraz, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, alongside some smaller plantings of non-mainstream varieties such as Malbec, Petit Verdot, Barbera, Nebbiolo and Sangiovese.

Peter Lehmann, while winemaker at Saltram, lightened the traditional styles and made distinctive reds, and fine ports. He encouraged the planting of cabernet sauvignon, harvested earlier for better pH control and introduced new oak casks Most of the Saltram vines are irrigated via drip irrigation and supported on a variety of trellising systems with more recent planting on single wire trellising and t-trellising systems. Drip irrigation was developed in the 1950s to allow viticulturalists to grow grapevines in climates with low rainfall.

 Saltram

The Barossa Valley receives moderate rainfall of approximately 520mm (mostly falling during the winter months), and has high summer evaporation and low relative humidity. This ideal climate produces relatively low disease pressure, which limits the need for chemicals in the vineyard and also maintains the natural environment. Today, vineyards with a range of climatic conditions use drip irrigation as it allows them more control over the amount of water the vines receive. This extra control allows them to stress the vine by not irrigating at certain times, and irrigating it at others in order to control the crop level and quality of grapes the vine produces.

The Saltram Vineyards also have a number of older vines that were planted in the 1950s and 1960s that are dry grown - not irrigated at all. Dry growing the grapes on these vines produces more concentrated flavours and a higher skin to pulp ratio which improves wine colour and tannin levels. In good years, select parcels from theses vines go into the renowned Saltram No.1 Shiraz and various other special blends that make up Saltrams superb range of wines.

One of the more recently introduced flagship reds in the Saltram suite is called The Eighth Maker. Created as a tribute to the past seven Chief Winemakers at Saltram, it has established a new benchmark for Barossa Shiraz, creating a classic wine which captures the tradition of the region. Saltrams flagship No. 1 Shiraz is now considered one of the elite Barossa reds, while the Mamre Brook Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz continue to win accolades and gold medals.

From vintage 2000, winemaker Nigel Dolan took on a more senior role for parent company Beringer Blass as Group Red Winemaker while retaining full control over the style and quality of his beloved Saltram wines. Dolans wines are characterised by a focus on regional and varietal intensity they are made with a firm belief and a deft, masterful touch. As the creator of the much-loved Pepperjack label, Nigel has established himself as an artful winemaker in the traditional mould, and an innovator interested in utilising cutting-edge winemaking techniques and progressive varietals.
