Hewitson Shiraz The Mad Hatter 2012
The 2012 The Mad Hatter was aged for 20 months in new French oak intensifying flavor and complexity of the wine. This unique and single vineyard wine illustrates our belief that great wine is an expression of vineyard and vintage.
From vines with an average age of 50 years; fermented for 4 weeks in an upright vat, followed by 20 months in new French barriques. Makes up big time for the decision not to make an '11, its flavors positively explosive, sparks ricocheting in all directions, but always within a coherent, elegant framework; has great length into the bargain.
