Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre 2008 375ml
A delicious result from these seasoned campaigners – the vines were planted in 1853. This has brambly, wild red and dark fruits on the nose, some toasty oak and dark toasted spices. The palate’s packed with juicy, fleshy red and blue fruits and some fine, dark mineral threads. It’s really elegant and even, superbly balanced and toasty through the hauntingly long finish. Brilliant wine - a national treasure.
