Family run Mitchell wines in the Clare Valley are stalwarts of the region and produce long lived reds and Rieslings.
Mitchell, Watervale Riesling, Clare Valley 2015
Pale gold, green highlights. Wax and lime flesh, a touch of wool and fly spray. Confusing palate: feels a little flabbier than it should be. Tastes like it’s 3 years old and in a slightly dull spot. Sure there’s the required lime and plenty of acid, but for a 2015 young dry Watervale Riesling….it’s neither razor sharp precise nor carrying enough residual sugar to justify the body. Whilst there’s nothing wrong with it, I’m a little disappointed. Will be interesting to see how it ages.
