Winemaker Notes

The 2010 Baby Bush is near perfection of expression of this variety. The aromas display classic Mourvedre richness, ripeness and rusticity. The dark, brambly, blueberry aromas are matched with the sage, earth and undergrowth. These aromas carry right through the palate which delivers a rich, velvety mouthfeel, backed by very soft and fully ripe tannins. The structure, balance and youthful poise of 2010 Baby Bush Mourvedre ensures the wine is extremely enjoyable now. It will also reward with time in the cellar.

Critical Acclaim

Wine & Spirits
Dean Hewitson contracts the fruit from the Old Garden Vineyard in Rowland Flat, where the mourvedre vines date back to 1853. The Koch family, who tends these ancient vines, selected cuttings from them in 1996 to plant, head prune and dry farm in the same configuration as Old Garden. The result, in the cool 2011 vintage, is completely intoxicating. An honest take on mourvedre's tension between funk and brilliance, one side of this wine is blood and iron, the other side is a fresh cranberry crush of flavor. The only sign of the youth of the vines is a steeliness in the tannins, if you can stand to quibble with such a delicious, bright and spicy red.
RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Made from 100% Mourvedre coming from younger vines that were cloned from the 1853 Old Garden block, the 2010 Baby Bush Mourvedre has a medium-deep garnet-purple color and aromas of damp loam and black truffles over warm plums, blackberry tart and black olives. Medium to full bodied with some chewy tannins, it has a pleasant earthy / meaty character complimenting the black fruits with refreshing acidity and a long finish.

Hewitson
Dean Hewitson is driven by passion. His creation of individual, exquisite wines from the ancient vineyards of South Australia is for your indulgence.

Dean Hewitson has been indeed very fortunate to be tutored by some of the best wine makers and wine scientists in the world. Having completed his degree at Roseworthy, he worked at one of Australia's best wineries, visited some of the world's best wineries experiencing fifteen vintages worldwide, and spent two years at UC Davis, California, where he completed his Masters. Through all of this, to be guided through wine evaluations and wine making techniques of the great wines by the masters themselves has certainly been a privilege and a wonderful opportunity for him. He therefore is able to draw on a very wide spectrum of ideas, practices, philosophies and experiments. These are encapsulated in his wines.

Hunting down the right varieties in the right vineyard in the right region was the next step. Each variety has been selected on the basis of being able to produce a wine of world class that, in particular, the old vineyards of South Australia are able to produce. Geographical isolation and in part a fluke of human non-intervention have preserved pre-phylloxera vineyards that are more closely linked to the original clones from Europe than anywhere on earth.

Napa Valley

Cabernet Sauvignon

The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
