Hewitson Monopole Mother Vine Shiraz 2015
This smart single vineyard Shiraz is a Sélection Clonale from one ancient surviving Shiraz vine planted in 1853 and resurrecting an ancient clone of pre-Phylloxera Shiraz.
Full-bodied and bold, this Barossa red boasts rich black fruits with floral notes on the nose. The palate is intensely flavoured with mulberries and raspberries, chocolate and seamlessly integrated tannins.

Festooned with gold medals, the wine is undoubtedly superb, coming as it does from a good vintage and a very great vineyard. The interesting part is the CO2 prickle that underwrites the longer term future of an already beautiful lemon and mineral-accented wine.
