Mitchell Wines is one of those wineries that sits below the radar perhaps thanks to their elegant, subtle style. These are not flashy wines that demand attention but grow on you over time and a second glass, which is always a good sign.
Crafted from almost 60 year old vines – surely some of the oldest in Watervale – this wine is a picture of delicacy. It teases with lifted but understated aromas of lime, white flowers and wet stones while the overall picture is of youthful vitality and energy. That is all followed by a dry, light-weight and tart palate – its high acidity driving a linear mouthfeel with detailed but similarly understated fruit with a long, silky and spicy finish. It’s refreshing right now but still wound up tight so best enjoyed in a couple of years time once it has started to emerge from its delicious shell.
