"Beautifully presented. Cherries & plums with peppercorn notes & savoury spice. Chocolatey oak .... and tending towards full-bodied. Really good."
The late Don Lewis had over 30 years as winemaker at Mitchellton.
Together with Narelle King, he goes to Spain these days to teach the Spaniards how to make great wine on their own turf!!
This is a wonderful example of what 20 year-old Tempranillo vines can achieve in Australia under Don's care.
Simply a terrific wine & great value!

"This offers up a deep pool of lush berry fruit, licorice, chocolate, spice and tobacco that is so seductive you can’t but help but find yourself slipping under. On the palate full bodied with saturating sweet dark berry, cherry, chocolate, cola, dried herb and licorice flavours and superb mid-palate richness with an ample spread of plush velveteen tannins and a smooth creamy texture. Very long and satisfying. It’s a spectacular wine and almost irresistible."
