Hewitson Miss Harry Dry Grown GSM 2015
This 'Rhone-style' blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mouvedre from Hewitson has established itself as one of Australia's most consistent and best value red wine. Each vintage this wine over-delivers on the value for money stakes and the newly released 2012 vintage is no exception. "Dean Hewitson’s delightfully savoury, spicy Miss Harry combines the Rhone Valley varieties, grenache, shiraz, mourvedre, carignan and cinsault. Much of the fruit comes from “historic 100-year-plus, dry-grown bush vine vineyards dotted throughout the valley”, writes Hewitson. The venerable old vines gave their best flavours in the wonderful 2012 vintage. Grenache (60 per cent of the blend) forms the base of this medium coloured, medium bodied red, while the other varieties collectively add fruit flavour, spice and earthy, fine tannins. Together, they deliver a harmonious, elegantly structured, satisfying red revealing the warm Barossa at its best. This is a lot of wine for not a lot of money."- Chris Shanahan, http://chrisshanahan.com. "Grenache, Shiraz, Mourvedre, Carignan and Cinsault - all the boys are here. Perfume of dried herbs and flowers, meat, cherry, mixed berry - not too sweet. Then a medium-weight palate, fresh and fairly savoury but fruit sweet too, fine tannin - really pleasant balance of fruit and acid here. Cherry pips. Clean and long. Top drinking. Cherries on train tracks. What? Rated: 92 Points Tasted: Mar14 Alcohol: 14% Price: $23 Closure: Screwcap Drink: 2014 - 2020"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front. "The 2012 Miss Harry continues the success of this beautifully structured, fruit-concentrated red wine that absolutely delivers with integrity, intrigue, class and complexity in a very approachable style. The palate is wonderfully full, showing ripe black berries, strawberries and plums, and has a concentrated core of fruit essence with a racy acidity that gives the wine incredible vivacity. The finish is long, continuous and fresh. 2012 Miss Harry is quite an exceptional wine and is absolutely world-class." - Hewitson Wines.
