2 x Hewitson Gun Metal Riesling 2020
Eden Valley is recognised as one of the world’s great Riesling regions. This single vineyard is recognised as one of the best Eden Valley vineyards. The specific topography and mineral profile provide ideal conditions for Riesling.
Pale straw with green tinges. Citrus, especially lime, predominates the flavour profile while carrying the trademark minerality that Gun Metal is renowned for. Petals, minerals and talc. The palate is delicate, refined and intense, with a firm, dry finish and lingering aftertaste.
2 x Hewitson 'Miss Harry' Grenach Shiraz Mouvedre 2017
The nickname of Harriet Hewitson, this wine is a Rhone-style blend from vineyards dating back to 1800s. Traditional wine making. Bright garnet with a medium purple hue. The aroma is of cherries, strawberries, spice and Provencale herbs. The palate is wonderfully fresh and with juicy forest fruits, dried herbs and a creamy complexity derived from its maturation on yeast lees in old French oak barrels. The concentrated fruits, fine tannin and perfectly integrated acid complete the wine.
2 x Hewitson Ned & Henrys Shiraz 2018
Yum. It’s nutty and dark fruited, with some raspberry juiciness, chocolate and a smattering of dried herb. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively, a bit of perfume in there, saltbush too, grainy tannin and solid length. Good drink.
