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.
And of 2018 Barossa reds, well I like them a lot. Yum. It’s nutty and dark fruited, with some raspberry juiciness, chocolate and a smattering of dried herb. Medium-bodied, fresh and lively, a bit of perfume in there, saltbush too, grainy tannin and solid length. Good drink. Tasted: April 20; Alcohol: 14%; Price: $30; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2020-2026; Rated: 92 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front
Attractive purple berries with bergamot, coal-smoke and tarry notes. Violets, earth and some herbal and chocolate nuances, too. The palate has plenty of tannin and a long, juicy red and blackcurrant core. Big, juicy finish that makes some real impact. Rated: 94 Points; Nick Stock for James Suckling
