Halliday Wine Companion Awards, Jane Faulkner "Fragrant with so many spices, plus some toasty cedary oak too. A flush of ripe fruit works across the more medium-bodied palate offering a combo of rhubarb, cherries and pips plus chinotto tang. The tannins have some give and it's refreshing to the very last drop"

Sydney Morning Herald - Australia's Top 52 Wineries of 2020 "TarraWarra Estate - #28. Very fine chardonnays and pinot noirs, especially under the MDB, Reserve and single-block labels. TarraWarra has recently extended its range to elegant barbera, nebbiolo, shiraz and an exemplary roussanne marsanne viognier blend. The 2017 vintage is exceptional across the board. The merlot and rosé are also among the best money can buy."

Qwine "Delicious density has me licking my lips. Delightful drinking really. Dark plums and earthy goodness make a move early. Strawberries and dried herbs tuck in behind with a subtle nudge of cloves. Some chocolate can be seen too. A touch of red apple acidity and fine spices run long on a persistent finish."

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.”

In early 2021, leading global publication Wine Enthusiast included Hewitson in its top 10 list of “Vineyards Behind the World’s Most Famous Wines” alongside heralded blocks in Burgundy, Champagne, Piedmont and Napa Valley.

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.

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.

Silver 93/100 Campbell Mattinson (2016 vintage)
James Halliday Five Star Rating (2016 vintage)
Handcrafted, micro-winery (2016 vintage)

Campbell Mattinson - "Lots going on and the volume to carry it. Wood smoke, preserved lemons, nougat, and roasted nuts, a gun smoke character too. Pears, tinned. Oatmeal. It's lively, expressive and textural, the finish satisfying. Nothing at all wimpy; it's a mouthful of flavour."

Swiss born head winemaker, Nina Stocker is the daughter of eminent wine scientist Dr John Stocker. Nina was born and raised in a small town on the border of the Alsace wine region in Switzerland and it was her family’s involvement in the local village vineyard which paved the way for her future career as a Winemaker.

Nina has worked vintages in McLaren Vale, Yarra Valley, Barolo (Italy), Rhone Valley (France), Alentejo (Portugal), and New Zealand.

In Dreams have won medals for both their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. In Dreams source their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from three low yielding, premium quality vineyards. The vineyards are predominantly from the upper Yarra Valley due to the cooler micro climate that helps them capture the elegance and finesse of this noble variety.

In Dreams are focused on allowing the vineyards to express themselves in the resulting wines using traditional winemaking techniques such as small batch fermentation, wild yeast and the delicate use of French oak.

World Wine "Good depth of flavour. Crunchy, Juicy, delicious. Outstanding Provence Rosé" (2020 vintage)

Mike Bennie, The Wine Front "For cafes by the water in Provence, or something like that. Pale in colour and flavour, strawberries, some light cream, a smudge of gummy tannin lending some shape. It has good and perky freshness to it, dryer fruit characters, a touch of savouriness." (2020 vintage)

Stuart Knox - The Real Review "Palest of salmon-pinks in the glass. Strawberry, lavender and pink grapefruit aromatics. Great fruit intensity and balance between that fruit and acidity. The finish has a moment of phenolic grip kick in which focuses and lengthens the palate. Very much in the modern Provençal style, ticking all the boxes for summer drinking" (2019 vintage)

Ralph Kyte-Powell - The Real Review "The merest blush of pink slightly deepens its glittering appearance, introducing a subtle, savoury style that’s incredibly appetising. There are earthy, stoney aromas, suggestions of wildflowers, and a subtle thread of plummy fruit that translate easily into a smooth, dry mouthful of tangy, ripe flavour. It’s lingering and zesty with just enough phenolic structure to make it very food-friendly. A blend of syrah, grenache and cinsault." (2019 vintage)

Epicure Good Food, Wine Guide, The Age "Outstanding French Rosé...The bouquet is subtle, and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour." (2019 vintage)

Terry Georga "Rameau d'Or is the most classic of Provencal rosés; from the pale pink-salmon verging on peach-flesh colour, to the savoury spice and fruit it portrays. A delicate blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise from Cotes du Provence it is a refreshing, versatile wine that suits aperitif drinking and the quintessential summer rosé." (2018 vintage)

Drinkster, Philip White 'Provence Grenache Cinsault rosé stays fresh and pink with screw cap' "This is a bonny dry rosé of the best sort....mild rosepetal/rosebud perfume that wends from the thorns all the way along to Turkish delight is here....insinuations of gingery lime marmalade and leatherwood honey - are all here jumping and dancing so fresh and lovely." (2017 vintage)

Cameron Douglas MW "Attractive fragrances of light red fruits - light red cherry and strawberry with a hint of cranberry; these are repeated on the palate with crisp and refreshing acidity, very light and fine needlepoint tannins showing off a chalky mineral-like moment." (2016 vintage)

Wine of the Week "Fabulous lunchtime wine with attractive bottle presentation and a back label story to the entrance. The most delicate pink hue, subtle aromas of cherry and raspberry and almost bone dry to the taste which is savoury rather than fruity with spice and pepper nuances and a tangy finish."

Huon Hooke "An outstanding southern French rosé. The colour is pale salmon-pink and the bouquet is shy and subtle, savoury and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour, richness and the finish has harmony and persistence. Very more-ish. " (2015 vintage)

George Orwell ''All rosés are equal but some rosés are more equal than others.''

The Winemaker " Striking a delicate balance between fruit weight, lip smacking mineral acidity and taut, spicy fine-grained tannin - this is the Provence we know and love - tres elegant and long. Very pale with just a hint of peachy blush. On the nose, intensely floral with spice-tinged berries; on the palate it has a lovely density, laden with white peach, rose petals and grapefruit rind." (2020 vintage)

A blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise

This wine is produced by Debussy which has several estates in the Rhone Valley, Provence and other Mediterranean regions. Debussy estates produce wines that express the characters and typicity of each of the French terroir that the vineyards are located, creating wines reflective of the regions and their popular wine styles. The name Rameau d'Or means 'Golden Bough' and is based on a fantastical tale of enchantments, transformations and love. A magical golden bough from an enchanted garden was given to a prince, by an eagle, to awaken a sleeping princess. A bough is so powerful that a single leaf from it would make one rich, young and beautiful. Unfortunately, this prince was not the most handsome man in his kingdom. Choosing a full led soul over outer beauty, he and his newly awoken princess set about to transform the lives of those around them.

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.

The Estate is now managed by his eonologist son, Luke who continues the tradition of producing wines of varietal and regional excellence.

Matt Ward "With lifted floral notes of elderflower, pear, cinnamon and custard. The palate is generous, where ripe fruit and texture
create richness, yet balance with very fine minerality and a touch of residual sugar to bring the wine to a memorable finish."

Bob Campbell "Attractive pinot gris that's been made with a light touch with poached pear, apple, ginger and nutty yeast lees characters. A dry wine with appealing purity and an ethereal texture" (2021 vintage)

Sam Kim "Elegant and delightfully inviting, the bouquet shows white flesh peach, Nashi pear, floral and lemon peel aromas. The palate displays excellent fruit purity and focus, combined with refined texture and bright acidity, finishing long and delicate. At its best: now to 2025."

Bob Campbell "Off-dry pinot gris with green pear, apple and fresh baked bread yeasty characters. Crisp and slightly hard acidity balance subtle sweetness and leave a drying finish." (2019 vintage)

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 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.

Matt Ward "With lifted floral notes of elderflower, pear, cinnamon and custard. The palate is generous, where ripe fruit and texture
create richness, yet balance with very fine minerality and a touch of residual sugar to bring the wine to a memorable finish."

Bob Campbell "Attractive pinot gris that's been made with a light touch with poached pear, apple, ginger and nutty yeast lees characters. A dry wine with appealing purity and an ethereal texture" (2021 vintage)

Sam Kim "Elegant and delightfully inviting, the bouquet shows white flesh peach, Nashi pear, floral and lemon peel aromas. The palate displays excellent fruit purity and focus, combined with refined texture and bright acidity, finishing long and delicate. At its best: now to 2025."

Bob Campbell "Dry, fruity pinot gris with ripe pear, stewed apple, ginger and star anise flavours. An initial suggestion of sweetness is quickly balanced by fruity acidity giving a dry finish and adding a little tension to the wine" (2020 vintage)

Bob Campbell "Off-dry pinot gris with green pear, apple and fresh baked bread yeasty characters. Crisp and slightly hard acidity balance subtle sweetness and leave a drying finish." (2019 vintage)

Huon Hooke "The colour is very light, bright yellow and the aroma is fresh and clean, tasting quite sweet and fresh, grapy and stone-fruity, with a nectarine-like flavour that is very appealing. An easy drinking and charming gris." (2017 vintage)

Since the release of Catalina Sounds Pinot Gris, the vineyard has been consistently awarded.

The Real Review. Bob Campbell & Huan Hooke "Top 2016 Pinot Gris"

Winestate Magazine 2016 Vintage "Attractively scented, with mouth filling body and strong, ripe peach and pear-like flavours. Fresh and finely textured, with slightly mealy notes."
