The latest release of Mitchell’s Peppertree Sparkling Shiraz is out and it is a good one. The wine comes from just a single block of old , dry-grown Clare Valley shiraz that gives Mitchell some of its best fruit. And then for the non-vintage blend they reach back into the cellar bringing together some old and young vintages to give good complexity, which is then topped off with fortified shiraz.

It’s a traditional style with generous and luscious blueberry and mulberry fruits with attractive layers of spice plus layers of baked earth aged complexity sitting in the background. In the mouth there is some balanced sweetness and not too much with plush dark fruits leading to a lingering silky finish. It is seductive to say the least and will be a good drink over the next five years.
