Dean Hewitson Ned & Henry Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Hewitson is dedicated to producing traditionally-made, expressive wines from the great vineyards that exist in the premium winemaking regions of South Australia. These regions are the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and stretching to the bottom of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Geographically these regions are collectively known as The Adelaide Super Zone. This is Hewitson's back yard. The 2007 vintage was characterized by the drought affecting much of Australia, delivering a very small crop with tiny, concentrated berries. The end result is a wine of immense quality, very similar to the fabulous 2006. The colour of 2007 Ned & Henry's is deep red with a purple hue. The aroma is distinctively Barossa Valley: black and red, ripe fruits with a solid, concentrated core. Matured in only French oak, the fruit is interwoven with pepper, nutmeg and clove. The seamless class of perfectly ripe fruit and French oak is a stand-out here. The palate structure of Ned & Henry's delivers in every aspect of the brief. The fruit flavours are full and concentrated yet soft and supple. The tannins are gentle yet persistent and completely mould into the wine. Ned & Henry's is most definitely full-bodied: chocolate, blackberry and dark-earth characters. Yet the wine has great balance and poise and carries that signature called 'drinkability'.
