Mitchell Peppertree Vineyard Shiraz 2018
It’s a delight to see an aged Aussie Shiraz hit the market at such an affordable price and the Peppertree Vineyard Shiraz comes with a strong track record. It has been a mainstay of the Mitchell brand for years and is well known to many, that said, the 2018 appears finer and more elegant than some previous releases. The benefits of bottle age are there to be enjoyed from the integration of fruit and toasty oak through to the seamless line of fine tannin that continues to hold strong, providing length and endurance. Ripe plum fruits, black berries with a sprinkling of lovely spice notes are deep, inviting and still so fresh. Peppertree captures Clare Valley Shiraz as the attractive, approachable, medium-bodied, spiced up, black fruited, warm-hearted wine that we know and enjoy. It has to also be noted that age has been more than kind, and it’s set to enjoy many more birthdays.
