2007 Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre
Old Garden is likely to be the oldest Mourvèdre vineyard in the world. Where a vine has died there is a gap. There are no replants. This wine was aged for 18 months in French oak.
Deep, dark crimson red colour with brick red mauve hue. The nose displays good perfume with aromas of ripe dark plum, liquorice, chocolate and a hint of earth. Medium to full bodied with dark spicy chocolate and liquorice flavours followed by a spicy plum back palate. Fine grained tannins with excellent concentration and length. Long, spicy plum and liquorice aftertaste.
Cellar 4-5 years (2014-2015)
