Overview

Crescent blends the ever popular Shiraz with the more exotic Mourvèdre and Grenache varieties. The blend takes its name from the 'Crescent' shaped sandbar which is home to Mitchelton Estate's oldest shiraz vines. The result is a layered and sophisticated wine showcasing the poise and balance that comes from careful blending.

Expert Reviews

The wine spent 16 months in new and used French oak, its bright colour attesting to the array of plum, raspberry and red cherry fruits on the bouquet and palate; the oak initially looks too obvious, but is pulled back into shape by the fruit on retasting. The wine is very good now, better still in a year or two, then a long plateau. Rating 94 - Drink by 2027, James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (FEB/2014)

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.
