Dean Hewitson - Old Garden Mourvedre 2010 - Iconic Distinctiveness 75cl Bottle
75cl Bottle £50.60 In Stock
Description: Old Garden was picked at optimum phenological ripeness. After fermentation approaching three weeks on skins the wine was subsequently matured in 100% new French barriques for 18 months.
These complex oak characters help soften tannins while compliment the terroir-based flavour profile of black, glazed cherries, dark chocolate, mocha and even orange peel that manifests itself each year in this single vineyard wine.
This demonstrates the remarkable nature of the vineyard - a wine of such iconic distinctiveness.
The 2010 Old Garden is already a classic and speaks of its rich tradition and inheritance.
This wine illustrates our belief that great wine is expression of single vineyard and vintage.
