Mitchell Watervale Riesling 2015
Special Price $38.00 Regular Price $45.00
Mitchell are widely recognized as one of the worlds great Riesling producers and Ned Goodwin recently noted that the Mitchell are making Rieslings with greater depth and poise than ever yet still with the tensile line of limey flavour and febrility that has always marked the house style. Campbell Mattinson reckons that this vintage is a no brainer! Part of the allure for us is that the Mitchell’s Riesling comes from their own 50+ year old vines which they age on lees for about 6 months prior to bottling, which rounds out the mid pallet, providing texture and mouthfeel. This edition offers minerality, lime, lemon, talc, and fleshiness offset by a steely drive. It is superb!

Mitchell is a legendary Aussie producer. The Mitchell wine story began in 1949 when Peter McNichol Mitchell arrived in the Clare and planted vines. Grandson Andrew established a winery in 1975 and has been producing ever since. He was one of the early pioneers of using refrigeration in Riesling production to help retain aromatics. Today the Michell’s own about 170 acres of vineyard, much of which they have planted themselves, and all of which are farmed according to organic principles. Jane Mitchell, who works in all aspects of the business and has also served on the South Australian Tourism Commission and been a board member of the Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, the Winemakers Federation of Australia Council and the Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation board. Along with other legends like Wolf Blass and d’Arry Osborne she has been made a life member of the Australian Wine Industry.
