Hewitson Baby Bush Mourvedre 2009

Go out and buy some of this.  Black in colour, this mourvedre based wine from Hewitson in the Barossa Valley from the 2009 vintage has an aroma of dark cherries and earth.  The palate is textured with good length, dark cherries again, and moderate acidity and tannins.  The texture and length are what stood out for me.  It sort of gently paws at you, soothingly suggesting more top ups than is sensible.  89 points.
