HEWITSON “Miss Harry” Grenache/Shiraz/Mourvèdre Red Blend 2015

(Barossa Valley, South Australia) $20

Whoever Miss Harry was, she knew her wines. This “GSM” is one of the best $20 wines I’ve tasted in years. It’s from estate fruit, and the mourvèdre was grown from cuttings of some of the oldest continuously producing mourvèdre on the planet (planted in 1853). The wine’s expressive flavors had me imagining that every cherry in the world had suddenly begun singing at the top of its lungs. This wine and a roast of pork or some lamb shanks would make for a terrific winter weekend night. (Miss Harry, by the way, is the nickname winemaker Dean Hewitson bestowed on his “charming” daughter Harriet). (14% abv)
