Hewitson Ned & Henry’s Shiraz 2020


Dean Hewitson set himself the challenge of crafting a full-flavoured Barossa red using French oak, and offering “fine grained tannins, balance, clear fruit expression”, which could be enjoyed now but fits the traditional mould as well. He has more than nailed his own brief. Deep maroon in colour with a lifted, alluring nose. Spices, dry herbs, raspberries, chocolate, soy, beefstock. There is focus, power, line and length. Fine cushiony tannins are found on the long finish. Youthful, but really appealing now. That does not mean it does not have a good future and drinking this wine any time over the next five to eight years will reward.
