Established in 1998 Hewitson winery is situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the World. Our fruit is sourced from these dry-grown, pre-Phylloxera vineyards of the Barossa Valley and also single site vineyards in Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. We believe great wines are the expression of the soils they are grown in and in the seasons they grow. Through knowledge and experience we strive for balance, structure, concentration, power and breeding.

The 2015 vintage is a blend of Grenache, Mourvèdre, Shiraz, Carignan and Cinsault. These varieties are historically grown in the southern Rhone Valley of France near the Mediterranean, and are blended together to make the local wine. These varieties also have a natural affinity for the Barossa Valley.

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.

A light, brilliantly coloured blend of grenache, shiraz, mourvedre, cinsaut and carignan. A finely wrought and balanced wine with just about every spice and every red berry you can imagine from this Southern Rhone blend. A truly wonderful trattoria wine that soars on the gently savoury finish.
