Hewitson Falkenberg Shiraz 2014
The grapes are carefully harvested before pressing, maturation and resting in oak. Falkenberg Vineyard is steeped in history being named after one of Hewitson's 5th generation growers.
The wine is a dark crimson-purple, and has a deep and bold nose offering a plethora of ripe red fruits which continue on the palate. The tannins are velvety, and fruit driven. The finish is fresh and clean, lightly acidic but beautifully round.

Vintage 2014 - A single vineyard, 90 year-old vines and the wine aged in French oak for 2 years, this is the foundation for Hewitson’s premier Shiraz. There’s an unmistakable Barossa stamp – it’s richly flavoured with menthol, dark fruits, a velvety sensation to the ripe tannins- and it’s long. There’s detail here, yet it is still in the big, voluptuous category, and done well. 14% Alc
