The Mitchells believe that given the conditions of rocky barren soils, old, dry grown vines and a long ripening period, which their selected vineyards in Clare offer, the fruit develops the flavours and structure for a complex varietal wine. The fully ripened Grenache fruit is fermented on skins from 10-14 days and gently basket pressed to extract full flavour and tannin structure.The glorious essence of Grenache is enhanced with a touch of mourvedre and sangiovese.

Winery Tasting Notes
Grenache, Sangiovese, Mourvèdre.
A deep developing brick red.
Savoury, dusty aromas of earth and spice.
The palate is fine with dry savoury developed fruit flavours. Herbal notes with a hint of dried rose petals. The intensity of flavour carries through with fine gentle tannins and a long lingering finish.
