'Madame M' Blanc & Blanc

Hewitson Adelaide

'Madame M' Blanc & Blanc

Unlike European winemakers who can be limited by strict traditions, Australian producers cherry-pick from influences as they choose. This aromatic Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat blend is inspired by the whites that winemaker Dean Hewitson enjoyed on his travels to the Mediterranean coast. Rich in melon, pear and citrus aromas, and with hints of tropical fruit, it is clean and fresh with good natural acidity.


About the producer
One of the most talented winemakers of his generation, Dean Hewitson spent 25 years perfecting his trade before setting up in Adelaide. Having worked abroad and learned the value of old-vine fruit, he often sources grapes from unirrigated pre-phylloxera vines in the Barossa. Hewitson is passionately committed to environmental sustainability, running the winery on solar energy and recycling the water used in cleaning.

About the region
South Australia is bursting with winemaking history: the first grapes were planted here in the early 1800s. Because the phylloxera pest is absent, you’ll still find ancient living vines – some of the oldest on Earth. Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains has been growing in the Barossa for 170 years, and the Old Fence Line block where the grapes for this wine grow is of a similar age.
