Hewitson Strawberry Hill Shiraz 2022


Named after an old strawberry patch which is next to the vineyard providing this Shiraz. Maturation is for a year and a half in French oak barriques of mixed ages and from a range of forests. Dark purple, the nose gives us oodles of delicious black cherry notes with deep black fruits, mulberries, finely integrated oak and coffee beans. The aromas include florals, plums and chocolate, but it really is that glorious cassis which rides high. Finely balanced, with good intensity and a flick of acidity plus really impressive length. The intensity is maintained for the full journey of the wine, which finishes with lovely silky tannins. Enjoy this over the next eight to ten years.

Variety: Red Wine, Shiraz
