2013 Mitchell Sevenhill Cabernet Sauvignon
This represents exceptional value for money for those who like generous cabernet sauvignon with an arsenal of natural grape tannins guiding the flavours. Black currant, bay leaf, cherry and plum aromas are inflected with a slight smudge of Clare Valley mint and bitter chocolate, yet the wine is pointed, medium-bodied, detailed, vibrant and long. There is nothing overtly drying about this. The level of extraction-six weeks on skins before 2 years in barriques-is perfectly tuned to the style.

The Mitchell Wines StoryJane and Andrew Mitchell established the winery in 1975 on the Mitchell family property in the western hills of the Clare Valley in South Australia. An old sandstone apple store was converted to serve as a rustic cellar door sales area. Continued growth has resulted in further development of the winery buildings and winemaking plant. Currently, some 500-700 tonnes of premium fruit is crushed and processed in a well equipped modern winery. The imposing two-storey century-old family home sits amid the vineyards, overlooking the winery. Stuart Pigott's Top 20 Dry RieslingsAndrew and Jane Mitchell's Watervale Rieslings are ideal for those who frequently find Australian dry Rieslings too one-sidedly acidic. In that context, these are wines for silk fetishists, but they still have great staying power in any context. Stewart, Tabori & Chang, New York, 2014
Why's this wine for you?
This is a classic example of 'Old-School' Clare Caberent. From the Mitchell family's own homestead vineyard is exudes charm and a certain 'Bordeaux-esque' enchantment. Full and rich, pairing with heartier meat dishes, this is one goregous Cabernet that is drinking wonderfully now but would also be rewarded by a decade or so in the cellar...
