Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
Available online only
Minimum buy quantity no less than 6 bottles.
Smooth and intense, this hearty shiraz is smooth and full of flavour but without any heaviness. Mitchell know how to make great wines and this red is no exception. It’s rich, soft and oozing with dark berries, chocolate, spice and hints of liquorice. A good one to cellar for 5-10 years. Open a bottle with your next steak or eggplant moussaka.
Wines like this show the advantage of bottle age in regions such as the Clare Valley where young reds can be brutish, even overwhelming with their dense ripe fruit. But give them a couple of years to settle and their more subtle characters emerge, as is seen right here.The key to this wine is fantastic balance from start to finish. Quite deeply coloured, it’s ripe and generous but also carries great subtlety too – dark cherry, liquorice and old oak are topped with white pepper, eucalyptus and violets plus a hint of whole bunch spice. There is definitely something Rhoney going on here too. That is followed by a dry, juicy and mid-weight palate with some Clare Valley earthy flavours tied in to dark fruits and supported by long drying tannins with baking spices right on the finish. So much going on here, it is a belter, great value and has plenty of aging potential. Get some.

Jane and Andrew Mitchell established the winery in 1975 on the Mitchell family property in the western hills of the Clare Valley in South Australia. An old sandstone apple store was converted to serve as a rustic cellar door sales area. Continued growth has resulted in further development of the winery buildings and winemaking plant.
Currently some 500-700 tonnes of premium fruit is crushed and processed in a well equipped modern winery. The imposing two-storey century-old family home sits amid the vineyards, overlooking the winery.
