Hewitson Favourite Child Mourvèdre 2020


From the oldest of the ‘selections massale’ of the Old Garden Mourvèdre, a famous Vineyard, these vines are 25 years of age – ideal for this style. The team use a high percentage of whole bunches in the extended fermentation, before the wine enjoys a further fifteen months maturation. An attractive purple/mauve colour. Gorgeously lifted perfumes with notes of mulberries, cloves, bay leaves and dried herbs. The wine is seamless and refined with good intensity on a very long finish. Delicious already, this has a long future, at least a decade.
