Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet 2010

Clare Valley, South Australia

100% Cabernet Sauvignon


Nyhed netop ankommet. Fantastisk cool climate dry grown Cabernet Sauvignon spækket med smag. Mitchell har lagret deres Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2010 i 8 år inden frigivelse, og for en australsk vin med 8 år på bagen er der imponerende meget liv og karakter.
Dyb i farven med masser af peber og frugtige noter af solbær, granatæbler og hindbær. Smagen er velstruktureret og byder på de klassiske australske Cabernet nuancer som solbær og krydderurter såsom salvie, oregano, mynte og timian.

Vinen roses til skyerne af vinanmelderne, og det forstår man, når man sidder med den i sit glas.

Giv gerne vinen en masse luft inden servering, gerne dekanteret i et par timer.

Vinen er fremstillet ud fra organisk kultiverede marker hvor der ikke anvendes herbicider eller pesticider.

Noter fra vinmageren

Mitchell Cabernet Sauvignon is a classic Clare Valley wine. It shows strong ‘berry’ flavours on the nose, with overtones of dusty new French oak aromas. The palate is very full flavoured and the wine has a firm tannic finish. When seen as a young wine it is the potential of the structure which stands out. The essential ingredients – fruit, oak, acidity and tannins – are present in the right proportions. All that is needed is 5 to 10 years (or more) in the cellar to allow these components to harmonise. The result is an elegant wine of great power.

Clare Valley Cabernet Sauvignon is a hidden gem worthy of international recognition. Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon has offered one of the best examples since 1976. Blessed with a climate that allows for a long ripening period, this wine impresses with every new release.
Despite the bottle age the Sevenhill always has a youthful spring in its step with the mouth coating fruit supported by fine tannin. The result is a long elegant and dry finish. This is far too easy to drink and the fact that it has been bottle aged allows you to enjoy it now. Sevenhill Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon however has consistently proven to be a long ager, so further cellar time is well rewarded.

How the team at Mitchell Wines can release a wine at 8 years of age for $30 and make money has me scratching my head. But take the business cap off and the consumer hat on and all signs say run to this – don’t walk. Superb cool climate Cabernet from an ever-reliable producer.
Juicy Cabernet which seems like the hand of time is yet to do it’s thing. Those on the hunt for ‘birth year’ wines without dropping a bomb will be smirking all the way.

Blackberries and blackcurrant, cassis and roasted capsicum get my attention early after throwing my snoz in the glass. A dab of fruit sweetness is still apparent. The energy of the fruit keeps me coming back eager to find a catch – but there is none. A fine pepper tiptoes through the mouth with the acidity keeping its head above water reassuringly for those keen to age.

To get a wine off the shelf with 8 years aging done for you at this price point – this is a no-brainer.

Drink now to 10 years+



This has terrific intensity and depth with ripe blueberries and cassis fruits. Some blue plums, too. It delivers a beautifully intense palate with concentrated cassis, blueberry and chocolate flavors, sweet and refined tannins. A fresh and deep finish

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.

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.
