Hewitson Shiraz Mclaren Vale the Mad Hatter 2003
This Shiraz, from a 45-year-old vineyard in McLaren Vale, bears the schoolboy<br/>nickname of its winemaker Dean Hewitson. It is a big, powerful wine, with<br/>deliciously concentrated black and red fruits, laced with some spice and<br/>chocolate. All seamlessly integrated into a well-structured and complex frame.<br/>The perfect treat for the lovers of a great Australian Shiraz.<br/><br/><br/><br/>"Attractive black fruits and pepper spice. Rich and supple, Christmas pudding.<br/>Roasted coffee bean. Lively acidity. Up to 2 years" (3 stars-Decanter, Feb<br/>08, Amy Wislocki, S. Australia)
Hewitson is dedicated to producing traditionally-made, expressive wines from the great vineyards of South Australia's famous wine regions: Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and stretching to the tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Geographically these regions are collectively known as The Adelaide Super Zone. This is Hewitson's backyard.
