The Old Garden vineyard is the oldest Mourvèdre vineyard in the world planted in 1853. 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. The vineyard has been hand-tended and dry-farmed by Friedrich Koch and his direct descendants across three centuries.

Appearance: Medium red with a crimson hue.

Aroma: Lifted forest berry, black cherry and orange peel.

Palate: A dense, lush blackberries & prune with hints of cigar box, violets and black pepper. Fine, seamlessly integrated tannins.
