Hewitson Monopole Mother Vine Shiraz 2021


Interesting origins for this super wine from a single vineyard wine that can be traced back to 1853. A single vine from that planting was nurtured over many years of harvesting buds and grafting to rootstock to create this wonderful single site. Has intensity but it sits more in the medium bodied zone. Alluring aromas of red currant and light plum with a little vanilla essence. The wine gently caresses the palate as it floats effortlessly to a sustained finish. Smooth integration of tannin with new and seasoned oak complemented by intriguing brick dust and chalk characters on the palate. Just beautiful.
