Hewitson The Dorrien Bank Cabernet Sauvignon 2022


Planted in 1996, grapes for this new red from Dean Hewitson were estate-grown in the famous Dorrien sub-region that lies on the left bank of the Para River running through the Barossa Valley. The 2022 Dorrien Bank is bright and understandably youthful in the glass, with aromas of blackcurrant and boysenberry underpinned with baked plum pie, light leafy mint notes and the savoury French oak of vanilla, cedar and chocolate. Full-bodied, it has the richness of a Cadbury’s fruit and nut chocolate bar in great balance with fine acidity weaving throughout and chewy tannins to finish.
