Overview

An opulent, richly flavoured wine melding the best fruit from shiraz vines aged between 12 – 35 years. The older 35 year old vines contribute about 50 per cent to the final wine.

A celebration of the attributes which have made shiraz so well respected, the wine showcases the quality shiraz fruit cultivated in Mitchelton's vineyard climate and geology. The wine displays a textured persistent finish, rare in a wine which is so readily approachable.

Described by Mitchelton's Winemaking Team as “a savoury vibrant expression of Shiraz in all its glory, it is a wine which melds powerful textures with polished and subtle flavours.”

Expert Reviews

"Mitchelton has been a low profile player over the past decade but that’s all about to be turned around. Estate vineyards date back to the late 1960s/early 1970s with the bulk of their vineyards in the 20 to 30 year range. Beautiful spot too, it is. No brainer if you like a good, spicy, medium-bodied red. More (black) pepper than I associate with the reds of this estate, matched to plum and black cherry and woodsmoke. Excellent ripeness and texture. Nice sense of poise. Warm, but controlled through the finish. Excellent drinking. "
