Production information

Producer: Mitchelton

Located in central Victoria, Mitchelton's first vines were planted in the early 1970s after Australian wine industry legend Colin Preece identified an old patch of grazing land known as Blackwood Park as having great winemaking potential. The Gouldburn River surrounds the vineyard on three sides, shaping the unique environment and climate of Mitchelton. Not only had the land never seen vines before, but the company's decision to focus on Rhone varietals - including whites like Marsanne and Viognier - was almost unheard of at the time. This innovation combined with excellent site selection has been Mitcheltons’ calling card ever since.

Production note

Vinification of the three different varieties is aimed at best harnessing the individual qualities inherent in each. Fermentation, maceration and length of skin contact are individually tailored for each batch to ensure the gentlest extraction of colour, tannins and the truest expression of fruit. Following primary fermentation, Grenache and Mourvedre are matured in seasoned French barriques for a period of 14 months whilst the more robust Shiraz sees a proportion of new and seasoned French oak for up to 16 months. Careful assessment at blending is aimed at identifying the most expressive barrels from each batch in order to create the most harmonious and balanced blend.
