Description

The Old Garden vineyard is the oldest Mourvèdre vineyard in the world planted in 1853. Dry-grown, original existing vines pre-Phylloxera. Eight rows of this rare and unique planting remain to this day at Rowland Flat and produce winemaker Dean Hewitson’s much-lauded single-vineyard table wine bearing the Old Garden name. The vineyard has been hand-tended and dry-farmed by Friedrich Koch and his direct descendants across three centuries.

A phenomenal wine that is the fruit of a small plot dating back to 1853. This has a very soulful array of red-plum and mulberry aromas and flavors and a sweeping wave of tannin, which, even though very discreetly, powers a very long and smooth finish. Drink or hold.
