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.

Sangiovese in place of shiraz. Hefty fruit flavour and alcohol. Black, tarry berries with a tobacco-like savouriness. Eucalypt in the picture too. Big Red territory. Rating 91 Drink by 2020 - CM - Wine Companion (MAR/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
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.
The resulting wine is not aged in wood, in order to preserve the complex array of fresh lively flavours of the variety - the black cherry and soft fruit tannins. A wine of great style with both power and finesse.
