Hewitson Barrel 1853 Shiraz Mourvèdre 2021


This is a real best of the best. A year before bottling the Hewitson team selected the best barrels of Old Garden Mourvèdre and Monopole Shiraz to create the final blend. I have been fortunate to have tasted many of these wines over the years, but I don’t think there has been a better one than this. Perfumed red fruits and violet with plummy cranberry notes. The palate is sublime with its deeply intense and concentrated power delivered with poise and finesse. It has structure and yet is supple. A marvelous statement.
