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.

Winery Tasting Notes
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.
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.
