Mitchell Wines Mataro Grenache 2012….A second look.

Interesting that Mitchell Wines sent me this wine to look at again after I tasted it several months ago I had it on the bench with some other Mitchell wines and immediately thought I had seen the 2011 so went on to complete the note.  I don’t mind having a 2nd review and also an updated technical component regarding the oak treatment (there isn’t any according to the Mitchell website).

Dense garnet in the glass. Meaty, dried beef, savoury aromas with a nettle edge, blueberry, blackberry and clove spice. Plenty of deep flavours: blueberry and plums before fuzzy tannins and a medium amount of acidity. This unwooded, yet slightly rustic example retains excellent balance and primary fruit qualities far belying its age. Plenty of time to go.

RRP: $22
Alc: 14.8%
