Hewitson 'Miss Harry', Barossa Valley 2014
91 Points Wine & Spirits
This blend takes grenache, shiraz and mataro two steps further with a little carignan and cinsault. It might start off tarry, but those dark tannins quietly yield to lovely fresh fruit. Hints of plums and violet candies carry some sweetness, a clean and vibrant contrast that helps to gentle the tannins, feeling completely integrated with the earthiness of the wine. It’s the kind of Barossa blend to enjoy with local cured sausages in Angaston.
