Hewitson Old Garden Mourvedre 2016

Barossa Valley

  • Product details
    With dry-grown, original existing vines pre-Phylloxera, eight rows of this rare and unique planting remain to this day at Rowland Flat and produce winemaker Dean Hewitson’s much-lauded single-vineyard table wine bearing the Old Garden name.
  • Tasting notes
    Lifted forest berries, black cherries and orange peel create a sensational start to the wine. The palate is all dense, lush blackberries and prunes with hints of cigar box, violets and black pepper. Fine, seamlessly integrated tannins complete the wine.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

Vintage 2014 - A single vineyard, 90 year-old vines and the wine aged in French oak for 2 years, this is the foundation for Hewitson’s premier Shiraz. There’s an unmistakable Barossa stamp – it’s richly flavoured with menthol, dark fruits, a velvety sensation to the ripe tannins- and it’s long. There’s detail here, yet it is still in the big, voluptuous category, and done well. 14% Alc


James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au

Vintage 2013 - Old Garden is an understatement, as the vines were planted in 1853. All the elements that make the wine special are in abundance: liquorice, tar, menthol and herbs. It’s full-bodied, smooth, with abundant tannins, creamy vanillan oak and spicy fruitcake. A very good wine. Just holing it back is the charry oak from 100% new French barrels Cork. 14% Alc.
