This Shiraz is classic Hewitson too, with the Joeys Blend Shiraz sourced from a single block of 30-year-old vines planted in sandy limestone soils.

What hooked us in here is the generosity of flavour - this is fabulously fleshy Shiraz in that true Barossan style. A cascade of dark fruit, fine tannins and a palate that says 'I'm from the Barossa, mate'.

Normally, this calibre of bright and bold red is a $25-$30 proposition (at least). But you can forget about paying that sort price here at The Wine Collective!

Who made it?

Dean Hewitson was a winemaker at Petaluma 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.

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. Our 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.

At Hewitson, we believe great wines are an expression of the soils they are grown in and the season they grow. Through knowledge and experience we strive for balance, structure, concentration, power and breeding. Proudly, through solar energy, water recycling and encouraging natural biodiversity, Hewitson brings these wines to your table environmentally sustainable.

Hewitson’s vineyards are spread throughout the renowned wine regions of South Australia, including the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills. The heart of our winemaking is however always within the Barossa, as we produce all of our wine from our Seppeltsfield Road facilities.

A really great wine deal must must be accompanied by great value. There is nothing better than getting an incredible bottle of wine for a fraction of what similar quality wines sell for. My recommendations gives you the very best "Value for money" wines at different price points.
