Hewitson Miss Harry Harriet's Blend 2016

Miss Harry is the nickname of Harriet Hewitson and this wine is a Rhone-style blend from vineyards dating back to 1800s. Harriet's Blend is a blend of Grenache (46%), Mourvèdre (18%), Shiraz (20%), Cinsault (7%) and Carignan (9%). These varieties are historically grown in the southern Rhône Valley of France but also have a natural affinity for the Barossa Valley. Aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak Miss Harry is bright garnet in colour and displays aromas of cherries, strawberries, spice and Provençal 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.

Halliday Wine Companion - December 2018

"Grenache, shiraz, mourvedre, carignan and cinsault from very old and younger vineyards, the components partially co-fermented and soon blended to protect the vibrantly and supple mouthfeel the wine always has. The tannins are ultra-fine, the finish long and fresh."
