Barossa Valley / Australia Shiraz-Granache-Mouvedre / $25 I am still reeling from the fabulous tasting I attended a few weeks back outside Baltimore. John Larchet, the owner of "The Australian Premium Wine Collection" led me through all of his wines over two eight hour days. I have to thank John, as it was one of the best wine experiences I have ever had. One of the brands he represents in the United States is <strong>Hewitson</strong>. Based in the Barossa Valley of Australia, they produce 11 different wines. I tasted six of them, and loved them all. Dean Hewitson and his wife Lou founded Hewitson in 1998. In a short time they have made a name for themselves and their wines in the Barossa Valley. "Miss Harry" is named in honor of their daughter Harriet. A classic blend of Granache, Shiraz and Mouvedre (GSM for short), this wine is an easy drinking gem. It pours a medium red/ruby color. There are flowers, berry and anise on the nose. This wine is very fragrant. The wine is medium bodied. When tasted the black fruit, black cherry and plum are first to be noticed. The flavours transition to red fruit like strawberry and raspberry on the medium length finish. The tannins are soft and pure and well balanced. This is a versatile wine to drink on its own, or with food. For the money, it is a stunner. I went on-line and found the 2005 vintage of this wine for less then $20 a bottle. I immediately bought a case. Don't miss out on this one. I am rarely as confident of a wine as I am of this one. I defy you NOT to like it. You can check out the Hewitson website on line at <a href="http://www.hewitson.com.au">www.hewitson.com.au </a><file://www.hewitson.com.au>. Check out the 2005 vintage of "Miss Harry" currently on sale for $17.98 a bottle at Wine Library in New Jersey. Shipping is approximately $25 per case. This puts your per bottle cost at around $20.00. Don't miss out. With the dollar in free fall, the 2006 vintage will be at least 20% more. <a href="http://www.winelibrary.com">www.winelibrary.com</a http://bp0.blogger.com/_lanw6owdrfA/SFLFN-ChouI/AAAAAAAAAK4/Wyd-2ityfSM/S1600-R/logo.jpg
