Hewitson Ned & Henry's Shiraz

"A very good friend of mine challenged me to produce a traditional, full-bodied Barossa Valley wine with the only criteria that it could be drunk young at lunch or dinner and did not stray from my fundamental wine making philosophies. French oak, fine grained tannins, balance, clear fruit expression! Those who know me well know that I just love a good challenge!” Dean Hewitson

Tasting Notes

Vivid ruby. Spicy cherry, black raspberry and violet on the intensely perfumed nose. Round and fleshy but lively as well, with flavours of dark berries, allspice and white pepper spreading out nicely on the back half. Blends power and vivacity smoothly and finishes sweet and long, with smooth tannins folding quickly into the wine's juicy dark fruit.

Grape variety: 100% Shiraz.

Vinification: Combination whole bunch and crushed on skins for a minimum of two weeks, remontage and punchdown.

Ageing: 16 months in seasoned French oak barriques.
