Thanks heavens they’ve shifted the price point up $5 in 12 months. Yet still potentially the most under priced current release wine in Australia.
Mitchell, Sevenhill Vineyard, Cabernet Sauvignon, Clare Valley, 2010
Dusty, earthy, savoury, spiced and brambly. This rumbles to lean but pure blackcurrant with a plethora of fine, meshy tannins wrapping like gauze before a bright burst of life from juicy acidity, and then squeezed tight again for the long haul. Dark charry oak, coffee grounds and earth provide a savoury finish. Make no mistake, this is a wine of power, crafted to be a specific thing in many years time. It seems mean and lean for now. It won’t please all comers and indeed, after two days it has only just started to settle down, give it the space it needs.
