Hewitson Shiraz Barossa Valley Ned & Henry's 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Private Cellar is a selection of our finest cuvee of Shiraz and Mourvèdre from the Barossa Valley. The warmth in March drove colours and tannins to unprecedented levels while the flexibility endeared to us in the winery preserved fresh, ripe red and black forest berry fruits. Our traditional winemaking practices saw exceptional extraction followed by 20 months maturation in new French barriques. The integration is superb. The mature wine was racked from barrel and left to settle under natural gravitational forces, then bottled. Hewitson 2008 Private Cellar Shiraz Mourvèdre has a cellaring potential of at least 20 years.
