South Australia | Barossa Valley

Our Review

Established in 1859, Saltram is one of the grand old Barossa marques with a rich history, Thomas Hardy having introduced the wines to the London market in the late 1800s. Some famous winemakers have tread the boards there over the years – Fred Ludlow, Bryan Dolan, Peter Lehmann and Nigel Dolan. The estate has been revitalised in recent years under Shavaughn Wells and current winemaker Alex MacKenzie and the portfolio includes many highlights from the stellar Saltram No. 1 through to the value-packed Pepper Tree range (see separate entry). -DAVE BROOKES


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.
