Semillon 2016

Clare Valley, South Australia

100% Semillon

 

Fantastisk lækker fadfermenteret Semillon fremstillet ud fra organisk kultiverede dry grown marker, der ikke har været sprøjtede med herbicider eller pesticider. Mitchell er kendte for deres fadfermenterede udgave af Semillon hvilket giver vinen en helt unik, kompleks og fed karakter. 2016 er en super årgang og vinen er perfekt afstemt med nuancer af citrongræs, stjernefrugter, honningmelon, pære, kiwi og med en god integration af eg fra fadlagringen.
En super spændende vin, der tilmed vil blive bedre og mere kompleks de næste år.

Senest bedømt i juli 2019.

Noter fra vinmageren

Pale green- gold in colour, the wine has a delicate spicy nose with citrus and lemongrass aromas. The palate is delicate but mouth filling and the fruit flavours are long and sustained. Delicious drinking now but will achieve more complexity of flavour over the next 4 -5 years..

Vintage

A mild summer with perfect ripening conditions and vines in good balance meant the grapes ripened very early with great flavour development. Vintage commenced on the 1st of February.

Vineyard

Single site vineyard planted in 1962 in Watervale. No irrigation, artificial fertilisers, pesticides or herbicides have been used in growing these grapes.

The Winemaking

The grapes were handpicked, destemmed, chilled and drained immediately. Only the first free-run juice is reserved for this Semillon. The juice is then run into French oak barrels for fermentation with wild yeast and aged on lees for 12 months creating a beautiful balanced wine.

Om Mitchell Wines

Mitchell Wines i Clare Valley er første Clare Valley winery hos The Wine Tree. Clare Valley er cool climate område i Australien og kan nogle andre ting end de mere varme områder i McLaren Vale og Barossa Valley. I Clare Valley trives de hvide druer anderledes godt og området er især kendt for deres Riesling. Ydermere giver det køligere klima en anden og måske mere europæisk stil for de røde druer end de varme områder gør.
The Wine Tree er stolt af at kunne tilbyde vine fra Mitchell Wines. Mitchell Wines omtales som én af de bedst gemte hemmeligheder i Australien og roses til skyerne alle vegne. Deres McNicol Riesling menes at være måske den bedste Riesling i Australien! Kig selv, der er noget om snakken.
With all the Mitchell Wines I’ve seen in recent time, value is a word which springs to mind. Lots to offer and then some yet again the asking price much less than expected. – An ever-reliable producer. (QWinereviews). – Is this the Best Riesling Made in Australia? – It’s a masterpiece (The Riesling Blog) 

Som prikken over i’et anvender Mitchell ikke herbicider eller pesticider på deres marker.

As well as the riesling, they craft intensely flavoured, well structured, long living reds from Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache.

 

To make great wine you need great vineyards..

We have four main vineyard sites spread throughout the Clare Valley which range in altitude from 300 to 450 metres. The winery site in Sevenhill is mostly Cabernet Sauvignon and is home to the McNicol Shiraz and McNicol Riesling vineyards. We have two sites in the famous Watervale region, named Alcatraz and Growers. These are mostly Riesling vineyards, with vine age upwards of 50 years. And Lastly in the hills of Auburn, our newest vineyard, which was planted in the mid 90’s.
We believe that to make great wine you need great vineyards, so we spend a lot of time getting these just right. Around 10 or so years ago we converted our vineyard farming practices back to those that our grandfather, Peter McNicol Mitchell, employed. We had noticed a gradual decline in the soil health, so we stopped using artificial herbicides and pesticides. We wanted to get away from the monoculture our vineyards had become and began to promote biodiversity, where once we had bare dead earth we now have lush soils full or worms and other creepy crawlies, we have clovers growing through the mid rows, wasps and bees flying around.
Angus Mitchell, Vineyard Manager.
