Overview

The pinnacle of Mitchelton's winemaking, a fine and distinctive example of Victorian Shiraz at its peak.

Print Shiraz is a finely boned wine which balances the power of fruit and a delicacy of structure. Select parcels of fruit from low-yielding vines on the oldest blocks of the Mitchelton estate are harvested in small batches.

Described by the Mitchelton Winemaking team as a “majestic and regal wine, its vivacity tempered by its lithe and luminous build. A wine that delights upon introduction and deepens into a passion on further acquaintance, it is ever resilient and enduring.”

Expert Reviews

"Deep purple-crimson; a complex and rich wine with blackberry, licorice and spice on the bouquet flowing onto the medium- full-bodied palate, with excellent texture and structure thanks to ripe tannins and judicious use of new oak."

Rating 96 - James Halliday, www.winecompanion.com.au (AUG/2011)

"Oaky aromas reminiscent of cinnamon with some plums and a dash of pepper. Tightly structured palate - bright, lively and soft in the mouth, with a balance of intense, sweet flavours."

Rating 5 Stars - World's Greatest Syrah and Shiraz Challenge, Winestate Magazine (OCT/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep brooding blood red in appearance.

Aroma

This wine opens with complex aromas of mulberry, cherry and christmas pudding peppered with spicy star anise, cedar and cocoa powder.

Palate

Rich, opulent fruits of plum, mulberry and strawberry marry with cinnamon bark, licorice and clove overtones. These powerful and persistent flavours melt together with rich chocolatey mouthcoating tannins that will evolve and soften over the next 10-20 years.
