Mitchell McNicol Shiraz 2007

Winemaker Andrew Mitchell honours his Father Peter McNicol Mitchell with this impressive cellar aged Shiraz from the Clare Valley.

Showing the colour of a wine with a bit of age on it, the bright vibrant reddish hues giving way to the more subdued, losing their brightness and sheen.

Aromatically it remains strong, a Shiraz from a warm year - the plum and residual oak elements combining to form an attractive profile, luring the drinker in.

Medium bodied. The fruit retains enough of a presence and combined with integrated oak delivers a proposition that all at once is spicy, savoury with that retained fruit presence just rounding the palate profile out. Soft, elegant and long on the finish. Patience has been rewarded, and yet still good for at least ten i'd suggest. 93
