Miss Harry, Shiraz Red Wine
£17.00 Per Bottle
Miss Harry is a red wine from Southern Australia, produced with a mix of carefully-grown grapes.
You’ll find a clever balance of spices and herbs with forest fruits, which give the wine a savoury aroma and flavour, and a bright red colour.
The name made it gain our attention, but it’s the specially-selected grapes and oak barrels used for production that give Miss Harry the flavours that make it one of our firm favourites.
Maturation in oak barrels gives this wine a creamy complexity. It’s fresh on your palette with flavours of juicy forest fruits, such as cherries and strawberries, balanced with spices and dried herbs. You’ll find it has a medium-bodied finish that’s quite savoury.
Recommended food pairings
A spiced, medium-bodied red needs to be balanced carefully. For our virtual pairing events, we’ve chosen one of our favourite cheeses: Stärnächäs. It’s a recent winner of World’s Best Cheese at the International Cheese Awards, and its supple yet smooth texture complements Miss Harry really well.
Miss Harry is from Hewitson winery’s own Harriet’s Blend: Grenache (46%), Mourvèdre (18%), Shiraz (20%), Cinsault (7%) and Carignan (9%). After careful growing on their own vineyard, they are aged for a full year in seasoned French oak barrels.
The use of great oaks is important to Hewitson. They finish fermenting all their red wines in French oak barrels, individually made and imported. Miss Harry’s grapes are produced on one of the winemaker’s vineyards, kept separate throughout fermentation and maturation to make sure they keep their unique character.
