Dean Hewitson's homage to old Barossa vineyards is a beauty, showcasing that incredible fruit intensity and effortless richness only found in true Barossan classics, with a weight and length that is next level.

Power to burn, this is real Barossa Shiraz, with old vine Shiraz intensity, cosseting oak and then a very long powerful finish.

Top tier Barossa with all that classic charisma and flavour.

How's it taste?

Bright youthful and ancient at the same time. Popping out of the glass with bright red fruit, rose and fragrance. Followed by a very complete palate, fine acidity, and wonderful mouthfeel.

How was it made?

These treasured deep-rooted Shiraz vines
represent the heritage of generations of growers in
Barossa Valley. Like the growers, these generations
of old vines provide outstanding fruit every year.

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.
