Hewitson Baby Bush Mourvèdre 2020


Mourvèdre….Mataro….Monastrell…Dog Strangler. Whatever you call it, this has been a vital cog in the Barossa wine machine for all the years, a key blending component – the George Harrison of the Valley. The occasional solo release hits great heights. Here we have an 1853 massale vineyard selection. Meaty (game/native) hits over cherry fruit, licorice, clove and focused tight with dark berry compote. Leather bookmark (paper page influence), smoky char with crushed rose petals and turned peat. Just medium bodied with excellent dark cherry fruit balance. Easy, super fine tannin and a bright lick of acidity to shine some light in the darker corners of the valley. Ready for now, but for those that prefer the dark.
