The fruit for this wine comes from the 'baby bushes' of the Old Garden Vineyard, originally planted in 1853.

These old vines were at the end of their fruiting life, so in 1998 they replanted it with younger bushes propagated from these old, historic vines.

It's a brambly, earthy and rustic wine - spice, herbs, purple florals sit happily alongside blue and black berries and plums. A delightful drop.

This younger example of Mourvèdre is a ‘Selection Massale’, or cuttings, from our 1853 Old Garden Vineyard. We commenced planting this vineyard in 1998, to ensure a continuation of the 1853 Mourvèdre legacy. Selection Massale is a traditional way of propagating from exceptional, ancient vines. Born from excellent stock, our parent vineyard is known to be the oldest Mourvèdre in the world and has passed on a notable high quality of fruit.

94 points - "So, this beaut little Mourvèdre is based on fruit created by taking cuttings from the Old Garden Vineyard, planted in 1853. It is such a brilliant and vibrant example of this terrific variety. I have seen this wine evolve over many years, and I have to say it just seems to get better each year. The balance of the fruit and oak is harmonious, allowing the fragrances and seductive aromas to reveal their true beauty. A great entry wine to understand some of the appeal of Mourvèdre." - Ray Jordan (Wine Pilot)


In the heart of the Barossa Valley lies Hewitson - and highly respected Dean Hewitson is the man behind the wines. After spending time in Australia as well as France and the USA honing his craft, he decided to open up his own eponymously named winery in 1998.

They source their fruit from historic old vines in the Barossa, and from select single sites in the surrounding areas of Eden Valley, McLaren Vale and the Adelaide Hills.

The Hewitsons are all about environmental sustainability and encouraging biodiversity in their vineyards. They product balanced, structured wines that are marvellous expressions of place and time.

We want Different Drop customers to always be getting the best price. If you see a lower price elsewhere, just get in touch and we will sort it out for you. We handle all our price-matching on a case by case basis.

Some things to keep in mind: 

  • Retrospective price-matching is available for 30 days after you have purchased from us.
  • The price match cannot be used in conjunction with a coupon or one-off deal we are offering. The idea is for you to get the best price in the market so if that is already achieved through a coupon then we won't price match on top of that.
  • We don't price match clearance or fire sales.
  • We’ll match the listed price as long as it is a legitimate offer and the competing store is actually able to fulfil the order (they have stock or more stock is en route). Essentially we won't price match cheeky vendors listing wines they have no hope of actually getting for you...
  • It must be a publicly listed price. We won't match a price that has been achieved through a coupon/cash-back arrangement, or through a non-advertised offer over the phone or otherwise.  
  • It is limited to a reasonable retail quantity.

We'll treat each price match request on its merit and reserve the right to refuse where we deem fit. For example, particularly rare wines, from non-trust-worthy vendors, in circumstances we deem illegitimate or if we feel our policy is being unfairly taken advantage of.

At the end of the day, we'll look after you and use common sense to ensure you're getting the best price, please just don't take the p%$$!

No, feel free to mix it up! There is no minimum requirement. You can order wines in any quantity or combination, 1 or 50+ bottles.

We stock three different sized gift boxes (single, three bottle and six), all are available for purchase for a flat rate of $8. They look great and make an awesome impression.

If you want to bulk order gifts or if you have any trouble please email hello@differentdrop.com or call and we can try and help.


If you can't add more wine to your cart it means we are low on stock of that wine. For example, if you are only able to 3 bottles and no more that means we only have 3 bottles left of that wine. If it's a must have, please contact us and we may be able to order more in for you.
