Tasting Notes:
rated: December 12, 2006 , K&L Wine Merchants
"When Clyde and I visited Dean Hewitson last January, we convinced him to sell us some of this wine, which normally is sold only at the winery. A blend of 75% shiraz and 25% mourvèdre, the wine is fermented in French oak and spends 17 months maturing without racking. Black fruits, earth, new leather, dark chocolate and a hint of vanilla oak showcases the old-vine low-yielding fruit. This wine that was recently nominated for the George McKay Memorial Trophy, one of the most prestigious awards in Australian winemaking. (Jim Chanteloup, K&L Aussie buyer)"
