2022 Hewitson 'Belle Ville' Barossa Valley Mourvedre & Cinsault Rose
Dean Hewitson was a winemaker at Petaluma for 10 years as well as working vintages in France and America.
- 93pts Sam Kim "This is instantly appealing on the nose with sweet strawberry, creaming soda and citrus peel aromas, followed by a juicy palate offering youthful fruit flavours with vibrant acidity, making it highly enjoyable. At its best: now to 2025."
- 92pts James Halliday (Dave Brookes) "As you would expect from Dean Hewitson, this rosé is made from his beloved mourvèdre and it paints a pretty picture. Salmon pink in the glass with aromas and flavours of redcurrant, raspberry, red cherry and grapefruit cut with gentle soft spice, white and red flowers, almond paste and stone. Some nice fruit sweetness is tempered by stony acidity finishing long, red-fruited and moreish." PRICE - $30
