Overview

Central Victorian Shiraz with a twist. An opulent blend of shiraz, mourvèdre and grenache with the focus on texture and a seamless finish. Described by the Mitchelton Winemaking team as very much like “a dark complex personality who is fine boned, graceful and probably wears a lot of dark colours; perhaps a touch gothic or bohemian.”

Expert Reviews

Long, complex and quite savoury wine with lovely dark tarry/spicy berry fruit, long, even tannins and some well-handled oak. Just needs another five years in the cellar!" Rating 4.5 Stars - John Harris, Adam Foster & Jo Marsh, Winestate Magazine (01/APR/2011)

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A complex tapestry of aromas lure and tantalise the senses. Plum and blackberry characters delicately intertwine with spicy cherry, baked earth, dark couverture chocolate and heady notes of fragrant lavendar.

Palate

Striking a deft balance between finesse and power, the palate is plush and velvety in texture with a signature regional rustic bite. Beguiling flavours of maraschino cherry, mulberry, tobacco, nutmeg and cedary oak prevail ahead of a blanket of fine and powdery tannin on the long and flavoursome finish.

Wine Background

Mitchelton Crescent blends the popular shiraz with the much less common mourvedre and grenache varieties. The wine is named after the crescent shaped sandbar which is home to the old shiraz vines groomed to provide fruit for the wine. The key here is blending towards the shape, texture and seamless finish of the wine. Post secondary fermentation Crescent components spend 16 months on lees maturing in 30% French Oak. This adds further complexity to this intensely rich and spiced wine.
