Hewitson Mourvedre Barossa Valley Baby Bush 2008
Hewitson is dedicated to producing traditionally-made, expressive wines from the great vineyards that exist in the premium winemaking regions of South Australia. These regions are the Barossa Valley, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale, Adelaide Hills and stretching to the bottom of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Geographically these regions are collectively known as The Adelaide Super Zone. This is Hewitson's back yard. The drought year of 2007 provided a meagre crop on our Baby Bush vines. After hand picking and fermentation on skins, the wine completed its maturation in the very same barrels used, when new, for Old Garden Mourvèdre. The result is an intense wine of unique quality displaying very similar, yet youthful, flavours and characteristics of the Old Garden: black berries, violets, blueberries and glazed cherry. The wine has a rich and velvety mouthfeel backed by fine tannins. The structure, balance and youthful poise of Baby Bush Mourvèdre ensures the wine is extremely enjoyable now. It will also reward with time in the cellar.
