86 points - Wine Advocate
Medium to deep garnet colored with a hint of purple, the 2011 Baby Bush Mourvedre is scented of ripe blackberries and plums with underlying suggestions of loam, tar, black pepper and chargrilled meat. Medium-bodied, it gives a good amount of muscular fruit framed by crisp acid and a medium level of chewy, slightly astringent tannins, finishing long with a faint herbal lift. Drinking well now, it should keep to 2016.
Hewitson makes its home among some of the oldest vineyards in the world. Discovering the beauty within these venerable old vines and expressing their distinctive characters through winemaking that respects tradition and understands progress is the essence of Hewitson.
Dedicated to producing traditionally-made, expressive wines from the great vineyards of South Australia's famous wine regions: Adelaide Hills, Eden Valley, McLaren Vale, Barossa Valley and stretching to the tip of the Fleurieu Peninsula. Geographically these regions are collectively known as The Adelaide Super Zone. This is Hewitson's backyard.
