James Suckling "Offers fresh lemon, apple and pear, as well as sweetly fragrant spice. Pure and sleek palate with crisp apple, pear and lemon building into the long finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap."
Tyson Stelzer "True to its name, this riesling is built around a steely, high tensile backbone and chalky mineral structure. It’s a taut and pristine style of pretty lemon blossom perfume, granny smith apple and lime zest fruit, carrying with impressive persistence and tightly coiled focus." (2019 vintage)
James Halliday "Low yields across the Clare and Eden Valleys occasioned by the relentlessly dry growing season have come good with very concentrated flavours. (2019 vintage)
Qantas Magazine "Aromas of lime, petals, minerals and talc. The palate showcases citrus, mineral and powder dry finish." (2019 vintage)
The Winemaker "The palate is delicate, refined and intense, with a firm, dry finish and lingering aftertaste. Citrus, mineral and powder-dry finish." (2019 vintage)
Wine Spectator "Light and crisp, with pear and lime flavors that are appealing and straightforward. Drink now." (2017 vintage)
Wine Enthusiast "This is a steely, flinty Riesling....fruit: lemons, apples and orange peel, on the nose. But the palate is all about the flinty minerality."
Wine Spectator "Finds a balance between elegance and power, with a light and lively body. Offers intense notes of peach blossom, lime zest and honeysuckle. Vibrant and juicy on the finish, where a hint of fresh ginger chimes in. (2016 vintage)
1 x Hewitson LuLu Shiraz 2019 - Barossa Valley
92/100 Aaron Brasher, The Real Review
90/100 Wine Pilot
90/100 James Suckling (2018 vintage)
The Real Review “Young, dark and purple in the glass. Aromas of mulberry, geranium, dried herbs, anise and bouquet garni. Full-flavoured, fresh and really bright on the palate, with blackberry, spice, dark cherry. There's crunchy acidity, textured tannins, smart length and mouth-feel. A lovely Barossa shiraz in the modern genre.”
Wine Pilot "Great value for money and lovely to see this warm climate style have some restraint so you can enjoy with or without food, as you wish."
Regan Drew, Wine Pilot "Abounds with fragrant dark fruits of black cherry, blood plum and wine gums, tempered by anise and clove spice. A briny earthiness grounds it all. The maturation in older oak brings frisky fruit freshness to the fore as it slips silkily along the medium bodied palate, plumped just enough with those spiced dark fruits and a coda of easy, yet firm tannins."
James Suckling "A soft and round red with lots of prunes and ripe fruit. Some spices and chocolate, too. Full and juicy." (2017 vintage)
Qantas "The palate showcases flavours of fresh fruits, fine tannins and soft fruit finish." (2018 vintage)
The Winemaker “Dark red with purple hues. Classic cooler climate aromas of red fruits, pepper and spice. Fresh fruits, fine tannins and soft fruit finish.”

James Halliday 5 Star Winery
James Halliday Top 100 Winery 2017
James Halliday "A very attractive light to medium-bodied palate with spices coming from all directions, the fruit flavours red, purple and black, the tannin load minimal."
The Winemaker "This wine is a Rhone-style blend from vineyards dating back to 1800s. 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. Vinified with 45% whole bunches and minimal SO2, using solar energy and water recycling."
Gavin Hubble "The palate is vibrant and engaging with ripe forest berry fruits, dried herbs, spices and a beguiling complexity derived from its 12 months maturation in oak. Dean has deftly used the right amount of winemaking to showcase all the delicate layers from the centenarian and ancestor vines. This wine has concentrated fruits, fine tannins and perfectly balanced fruit acidity lifts the lingering savoury, smooth dry finish." (2015 vintage)
Wine Enthusiast "Soft, pretty and lifted aromas of raspberry, rhubarb, dried herbs, florals and graphite lead gently into a light to medium body. The palate shows plump red berries, flowers and a savory spine of gentle, chalky tannins." (2015 vintage)
Wine Spectator "Red licorice, cherry and star anise notes are smooth, juicy and crisp, with plenty of vitality and energy to the flavors. Shows plenty of focus. Grenache, Mourvèdre, Cinsault and Carignan."
Decanter "Complex notes of blackberry, spice, and wood smoke. The palate is compact with firm tannins, plenty of dark fruits and Shiraz spice. A touch of wood smoke and cassis on the nose with excellent flavour complexity and length on the palate. Nicely proportioned structure of textured tannins and juicy acidity." (2013 vintage)
Australian Wine Companion "Established in 1998 Hewitson winery is situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the world. Hewitson fruit is sourced from historic, dry-grown vineyards in the Barossa Valley and also from single site vineyards in Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills."
Frederick Wildman "Dean Hewitson founded his eponymous winery in 1998. He is a highly respected Australian winemaker ...Hewitson has worked at wineries in Australia, France, Italy and Oregon. Hewitson then moved to the U.S. where he earned a Masters from UC-Davis. On his return home, Dean brought a wealth of knowledge, practical experience and a driving passion to produce wines not only from Barossa Valley, but also from the McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills regions.
Hewitson fundamentally believes great wines are the expression of the soils they are grown in and the season in which they are grown. With his longstanding focus on terroir—specific terroir plots in fact—many of Hewitson’s wines are single vineyard. He sources grapes from not only his own vineyards but also from long-standing grower contracts including a few sourced from some of the oldest living, still productive vines on plots that date back to the mid-19th century and are pre-phylloxera. His ‘Old Garden’ Mourvèdre is a single-vineyard wine, whose vines were planted in 1853 in Barossa Valley and are reputed to be the oldest Mourvèdre vines in the world. Hewitson’s ‘Miss Harry’ is sourced from a Grenache vineyard planted in 1880, also thought to be the oldest Grenache in existence.
Due to Hewitson’s education and experience in Australia, California and France, Hewitson wines combine Old-World traditions with New-World fruit purity. And while he clearly excels with Rhône Valley grape varieties, Hewitson also produces award-winning Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. A practitioner in solar energy, water recycling and encouraging natural biodiversity, Hewitson produces wines in an environmentally sustainable fashion."
James Halliday "Dean Hewitson was a winemaker at Petaluma [one of Australia's leading wineries] for 10 years, during which time he managed to do three vintages in France and one in Oregon as well as undertaking his Masters at the University of California, Davis. It is hardly surprising that the wines are immaculately made from a technical viewpoint. Dean sources 30-year-old Riesling from the Eden Valley and 70-year-old shiraz from McLaren Vale; he also makes a Barossa Valley Mourvedre from vines planted in 1853 at Rowland Flat, and Barossa Valley Shiraz and Grenache from 60-year-old vines at Tanunda."

Winestate 'Best of South Australia' (2014 Vintage)
The Winemaker "Matured in predominantly American oak for 18 months, the aroma is full of blackcurrant with a lift of vanilla. The palate is seamless with hints spice leading to the fresh, soft finish and balanced perfectly with the rich fruit flavours. An elegant wine that is smooth yet powerful and a great example of Coonawarra Cabernet."
Hunter & Bligh "Picked from the Mount Gambier region in South Australia, this savoury, elegant and refined wine will take your palate on a rich and smooth journey. With tastes of cherry and red fruit leading to cinnamon spice and a hint of strawberry, you can already see yourself rugged up in a blanket with a glass in hand."
Huon Hooke "A powerful, firmly-structured cabernet with persistence and presence. The tannins are abundant and firm and provide excellent structure, suited for ageing. Textbook fruit ripeness....Deep red colour with a tint of purple, the bouquet fresh, clean and berry-ish, with softness, richness and charm. There is good density, too." (2014 Vintage)
James Halliday "Medium to full red-purple; the vibrant cassis and mulberry fruit of the bouquet heralds a lively palate, with red and black fruits, spices, firm but fine tannins and oak."

The Real Review "Deep garnet-red colour with crimson edges. Classic, still fresh Coonawarra notes of tobacco leaf, roasted nuts (oak), soy and spiced blackcurrants. The soft whisper of bottle-age complexity. Fruit is pristine and showing secondary charms. Oak-derived vanilla and nuts just blurring it a little. Sensational value for a wine of this age and quality"
QWine "...this is a Shiraz with great depth and presence... sure to please. Terrific value it must be said. Released with six years of bottle age already under its belt, blue and dark fruits, earthy feels and dark chocolate make a statement early. Add cloves and well handled oak (a mix of American and French for 24 months) and it's a very tidy drink. Fine spices shimmer on a long and dense finish. Steak night please". (2014 Vintage)
Huon Hooke “It's full-bodied and drinking well now. A serious glass of red......Deep red colour with a tint of purple, and a shy, reserved bouquet, which suggests fumey red fruits, older wood and some forward-development. The palate is drying, savoury and well-coated with supple tannin, the structure is in balance with the flavour and indicates it still has a cellaring future.” (2014 Vintage)
The Winemaker "The palate is soft & youthful with great length. This wine has great longevity & will reward cellaring for 5-10 years. This wine was matured in a combination of new American & second use French oak, giving rise to the intense mocha & hints of licorice. This is complemented with the rich mulberry fruit & touch of fruitcake spice." (2014 Vintage)
Patrick's of Coonawarra was founded by Patrick Tocaciu; one of Australia's leading wine (and AFL football) figures. Patrick's reputation for producing exceptional wine earned him many international accolades for the major labels he worked as Chief Winemaker, including; Tollana, Penfolds, and Hollick Wines. Patrick's distinguished reputation continued with the establishment of his own Patrick of Coonawarra Estate label. The wines are built on the solid foundation of extensive estate vineyards: 36 hectares in Coonawarra and 42 hectares in Wrattonbully. The Wrattonbully plantings contain shiraz, sauvignon blanc, and some of the riesling. All of the cabernets are grown in Coonawarra. The Estate is now managed by his eonologist son, Luke who continues the tradition of producing wines of varietal and regional excellence.
