Hewitson Barrel 1853 Shiraz Mourvèdre 2019
This remarkable wine is a 50/50 blend of the best barrel of the Monopole shiraz and the Old Garden mourvèdre. A mix of dried herbs and red berry on the nose with intriguing floral notes and that slightly ferrous oxide character. Then the palate is so exquisite. It’s elegantly medium weight with a layered complexity and intensity. The fine tannins and beautiful oak harness the fruit through to an exceptionally long finish. There is such a purity here. Engaging.
