Winemaker Notes

This Mourvedre is aged in 100% French barriques for 18 months. These complex oak characters help soften tannins while complementing the terroir-based flavor profile of black, glazed cherries, dark chocolate, mocha and even orange peel that manifests itself each year in this singlevineyard wine. This demonstrates the remarkable nature of the vineyard and is why we are proud to produce a wineof such iconic distinctiveness. The 2010 Old Garden is already a classic and speaks of its rich tradition and inheritance. This wine illustrates our belief that great wine is expression of single vineyard and vintage.

Critical Acclaim

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
With a medium density of garnet color, the 2010 Mourvedre Old Garden is evolving into a meat and earth-laced bake berry and preserved plum character with nuances of new leather and underbrush. Medium to full-bodied, it delivers plenty of earthy/savory flavor with a firm backbone of chewy tannins and a good, long finish.

Hewitson Winery Video

Established in 1998 Hewitson winery is situated in the heart of the Barossa Valley on the historic Seppeltsfield Road and boasts some of the oldest vines in the world. The fruit is sourced from historic, dry-grown vineyards in the Barossa Valley and also from single site vineyards in Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.

Hewitson believes great wines are an expression of the soils they are grown in and the season they grow. Through knowledge and experience, the winery strives for balance, structure, concentration, power and breeding. Proudly, through solar energy, water recycling and encouraging natural biodiversity, Hewitson brings these wines to your table environmentally sustainable.

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. 

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.

Barossa Valley Wine

Barossa, Australia

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in the Barossa zone of South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds.

While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.

Full of ripe fruit, and robust, earthy goodness, Mourvèdre is actually of Spanish provenance, where it still goes by the name Monastrell or Mataro. It is better associated however, with the Red Blends of the Rhône, namely Chateauneuf-du-Pape. Mourvèdre shines on its own in Bandol and is popular both as a single varietal wine in blends in the New World regions of Australia, California and Washington. Somm Secret—While Mourvèdre has been in California for many years, it didn’t gain momentum until the 1980s when a group of California winemakers inspired by the wines of the Rhône Valley finally began to renew a focus on it.
