Hewitson Old Garden Mourvèdre 2014

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  736504

The 2-acre Old Garden Vineyard was planted in 1853 and is recognised as the world's oldest mourvedre vineyard, producing only 5 tonnes, 25% whole bunches included in the ferment, matured in new French oak. Great colour for a '14 wine, still vivid and clear; super-intense, super-juicy; the quality and character take hold immediately you take the first sip, the bouquet a deceptively serene introduction. It is one of the most seductively savoury (or vice versa) wines of this medium-bodied style I can remember. Drink by: 2040. Special Value. Score - 97.
