In 1949 the Mitchell Family moved to Clare Valley, Australia, the property was a dairy, and orchard, and luckily enough a small patch of vineyard. This is truly a family operation, with three generations growing up and working on the property.
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 blend.
The Mitchell Wines Grenache Mataro Shiraz spends almost a year in 500L mature oak barrel 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.
