Hewitson Old Garden Vineyard Mourvèdre 2013

APPEARANCE

Medium red with a purple hue.

NOSE

Lifted forest berry, black cherry and orange peel.

PALATE

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

AGEING

18 months new French oak barriques.

PAIRING

The dark, intense smokey notes of Mourvèdre are fabulous with duck, slow-cooked shoulder of lamb, Mexican food which include mole sauce, and eggplant dishes such as baba ganoush or spicy aubergine salad.

READINESS FOR DRINKING

Although approachable now for its lushness, it should develop more complexity until 2030, so try to stash a bottle or two away.
