See Nick Stock' rating, tasting notes and drinking window for Hewitson 2012.
Cuttings for this are taken from the 1853 Old Garden bush-vines (hence the name). An alluringly youthful wine with blue and red fruits intermingled with wild herbs, dark stony notes, earth and brooding spice. The palate has a tarry dark cherry flavour and peppery hints, and the tannins are nutty and ripe – all smoothly textured and finishing with innate balance.
Price: £18.50-£19.50 AG Wines, Christopher Keiler
