Description

Falkenberg Shiraz is our premier Shiraz cuvée. The grapes are carefully harvested and fermented then matured in French oak. The wine is incredibly powerful and showcases Barossa Valley Shiraz at its best. While accessible now this wine will reward careful cellaring.

Appearance

Deep crimson red with a bright purple hue.

Aroma

Concentrated red fruits go on and on.

Palate

Concentrated red forest berries. With velvety fruit and oak tannins. Eventually merge with fresh, clean acidity.

Reviews

MaryAnn Worobiec Wine Spectator

“A floral grace note of rose petal lends aromatic lift and an elegant profile to the firm, focused core of cherry and plum flavors. A savory mineral accent lingers on the fine and focused finish. Drink now through 2030.”

"Unctuous and velvet-like; layers of perfectly ripened spicy dark fruits and chocolatey oak"

Halliday Wine Companion 2018

“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 unmistakeable 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.”

Huon Hooke The Real Review

"Very good red/purple colour, youthful. The bouquet seems more developed, soft and mellow, savoury, with full-bodied, mouthfilling flavour and ample soft tannins. Licorice, aniseed flavours. The finish is firm, dry and savoury."
