Expert Reviews

James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

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


James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

Vintage 2013 - Old Garden is an understatement, as the vines were planted in 1853. All the elements that make the wine special are in abundance: liquorice, tar, menthol and herbs. It’s full-bodied, smooth, with abundant tannins, creamy vanillan oak and spicy fruitcake. A very good wine. Just holing it back is the charry oak from 100% new French barrels Cork. 14% Alc.
