Grapes for this wine are sourced in the estate from Mitchelton’s home base, on the verdant banks of the mighty Goulburn River in Nagambie, Central Victoria. After fermentation, a period of “batonnage” was employed to tease out additional complexity and texture into the finished wine. Following 9 months maturation on lees, barrels were carefully assessed to ensure balance of flavour was achieved in the final blend.
Region: Nagambie, Victoria
Tasting: Delicate aromas of nougat, citrus blossom and spicy oak notes. The palate unfurls with soft and supple ease, held neatly by a limey acid core. Flavours of stone fruit, oatmeal and citrus rind combine and build ahead of a fresh and cleansing finish.
