Overview

We made our first vintage of this wine in 1976

Mitchell Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Clare Valley wine. It shows strong ‘berry’ flavours on the nose, with overtones of dusty new French oak aromas. The palate is very full flavoured and the wine has a firm tannic finish. When seen as a young wine it is the potential of the structure which stands out. The essential ingredients - fruit, oak, acidity and tannins - are present in the right proportions. All that is needed is 5 to 10 years (or more) in the cellar to allow these components to harmonise. The result is an elegant wine of great power.
