Description

“A very good friend of mine challenged me to produce a traditional, full-bodied Barossa Valley wine with the only criteria that it could be drunk young at lunch or dinner and did not stray from my fundamental wine making philosophies. French oak, fine grained tannins, balance, clear fruit expression! Those who know me well know that I just love a good challenge!” - Dean Hewitson.

Appearance

Deep crimson red with a purple hue.

Aroma

Red and black forest berries. French oak spice and richness.

Palate

Explosive red berries warm texture. Velvety soft tannins. Fresh acidity on the finish.

Reviews

James Halliday, Wine Companion

"An archetypal Barossa Valley Shiraz at a fair price and delivers big time – here it is without pretension. Delightfully aromatic, it balances ripe, juicy, dark fruit with the savouriness and plumpness of the tannins…"

Campbell Mattinson The Wine Front

"The brief is to produce a “traditional, full-bodied” Barossa shiraz that can be consumed young. It sure delivers on the brief. The fruit is dark, the fruit is juicy, the fruit had body and it’s all stack up-front. Tuck in. Coal and blackberry, saltbush and roasted, toasted, nut-like notes. There’s almost a slight char to this wine, in a positive sense. It drinks a treat."
