Hewitson Ned & Henry’s Shiraz 2002 (review)

88 points

Barossa Valley, South Australia. 14.5%

A sumptuous Barossa shiraz with a lovely little seam of green. Classy cool 2002 vintage wine. Very full bodied, rich and silky, nice French oak. This is a good example of new wave Barossa shiraz. If only it were a bit more savoury and slightly lower in alcohol it would be a much more drinkable and food friendly wine.

    A year and half later. It’s a nice wine, with very enjoyable seam of liquorice (which a number of the 2002 Aust shiraz have). The alcohol burn however is a pity.
