Enigmatic winemaker Dean Hewitson took some cuttings from his famous old Mourvedre vines (planted in 1853) and propagated them. The result is his ‘Baby Bush’ Mourvedre. The wine is dense, dark and spicy, as all Mourvedre should be. Dark berry fruit, a lick of oak and plenty of concentration. The only thing missing is a rich, dark stew, BBQd beef or savoury porcini mushrooms to accompany.
