Wine of the Week AU

Hewitson Ned & Henry’s Shiraz 2016, Barossa Valley, AUD $28

This is a soft, easy-drinking Barossa red with moderate tannin, low-key oak and disarming drinkability. There are ripe dark plum to blackberry aromas with smoky, earthy, savoury regional overtones. The palate holds soft, sweet fruit and easygoing texture. Good value. (Screwcap)
