Hewitson Barrel 1853 Shiraz Mourvèdre Barossa Valley 2021


A 50/50 split barrel blend of the best selections of the 2021 Monopole Mother Vine Shiraz and the 2021 Old Garden Mourvèdre. As such, the wine is tied to those ancient 1853 plantings. For the wine nerds that results in 65% whole bunches being used in the ferments. Hyper fragrant aromas that shift and move with each approach. The sum of the best parts with fresh cardboard box, roast meats, potpourri, chocolate wafer, raisin tea cake, peppercorn spice, fruits of blackberry, plum and cherry with nori sheets and a little vanilla. Complex and layered with gravitas and a ferrous spine. Layers of deep, muscular flesh held together with fine, firm and tightly knit tannins. Echoes of rose petals and umami that linger for a substantial amount of time. Unique and individual.
