Mitchell Winery was established in 1975 by Jane and Andrew Mitchell. The entire range of Mitchell Wines receives multiple accolades every year. Highlights have been the Penguin Wine of the Year in 2003, a consistent 5 star rating in James Halliday's Wine Companion and inclusion in the Financial Times Top 20 Wines of the World and regular Top 100 listings all endorse the Mitchell's choice of region and variety and is reward for their long-term commitment to their wines and the region of the Clare Valley, South Australia.
Rich and deep in colour, and rich and deep in aromas. Ripe, spicy shiraz flavours; dark chocolate with hints of liquorice. The silky mouth coating tannins give a gentle firmness and an elegant structure to the wine. Excellent long term cellaring potential.
You’d be hard pressed to find more Australian terroir character in a single bottle of shiraz than what lies inside this one. From the bottom of the same Watervale vineyard as the Mitchell’s famous riesling, there is an unmistakeable waft of eucalypt here, not green, not hard but incredibly pretty to sniff, and reverbs in the palate with soft and spicy fruit and more deep black pepper aromatics adding complexity as a tannin-rich finish wraps it all together. Special stuff. 4.5 Stars; Adelaide Advertiser; 18 July 2018
