Modest crop levels ranging from 2 to 3½ tonnes per acre give this wine its core intensity.

Mitchelton's vines are rigorously husbanded, careful monitoring of fruit ripening ensures harvesting occurs at the time of the fruit's optimum maturity. The crushed juices are cold settled, racked and warmed before inoculation with choice yeasts. Some of the lime green yoghurty textured juice lees is retained when racking the juice, adding complexity to the final Airstrip blend. Marsanne and Roussanne are barrel fermented for nine months in 20% new French oak, the Viognier is barrel fermented in four years old French oak barrels to retain purity of fruit expression. All oak fermented wines are individually selected, barrel by barrel, to ensure the harmony of oak and texture in the final assemblage.
 
Pale straw with vivid green hues. Inviting aromas of peach and apricot blossom, hints of savoury pistachio meld with spicy oak high notes.  The palate is a showcase of delicacy, ripe apricots, white peaches and crisp apple to the fore. Secondary layers of cumquat combine with a complex spiciness on the well rounded, medium body palate.

Mitchelton Blackwood Park Riesling
Goulburn
Available by the dozen
Mitchelton was originally a grazing property known as Blackwood Park. The soils and microclimate are significantly influenced by the presence of the pristine Goulburn River which surrounds the property on three sides, shaping the unique environment and mesoclime. In turn, geological shifts, ancestral river flows and climate have created distinct soil profiles on individual blocks. Priority is given to monitoring sugar and acid profiles while grapes are ripening, timing of harvest is critical to achieving optimum balance and intensity in the wine.

Parcels of Riesling are sourced from several blocks across Mitchelton estate, predominantly duplex red brown earths with friable soft sandy loam topsoil overlying well structured blocky red subsoils. Picking occurs during the early hours of morning in the midst of the cool Goulburn nights. From the crusher, to the press and in to the settling tank, fruit is protected by cooler temperatures and judicious gas coverage, to preserve the fragile aromas and flavours which are so vulnerable once the skins have been broken. Settling is short and cold, racking is clean and gentle in preparation for inoculation to a vigorous neutral yeast strain, ensuring an even, cold fermentation over the course of two to three weeks.
 
Pale antique gold in colour with green highlights. A delicate yet powerful nose of lifted floral and citrus aromas with a hint of musk. Flavours of freshly cut lemon and lime fill the palate, balanced by crisp acid which ensures the wine will develop superbly in the bottle. Intense citrus and floral flavours are balanced by a clean, mineral acid structure.

These veteran vines are naturally devigorated and unirrigated, meticulosuly managed by hand, ensuring precious yields of small, intensely flavoured berries which are reserved for the creation of this eminent edition of Victorian Shiraz.

Predominantly from the Old Faithful Crescent and D Blocks, a third of fruit is picked off an elite block at Heathcote, contributing structure and complexity. Grapes are treated to an extended skin contact for up to three weeks, extracting deep colour and soft tannins. A temperatuture controlled, submerged cap vinification in potters and small open fermenters is followed by transfer to a selection of new and seasoned French oak barrels from select cooperages, for completion of malolactic and eighteen months maturation. Parcels remain on lees and remained unracked to preserve freshness, individually barrel selected in blind tastings before determining the final assemblage.
 
Intense deep purple, violet hues. Rich aromas of brandied cherry, smoked charcuterie and festive pudding, a nose that continually shifts in and out of red currant/ mulberry reduction sauce, mocha, cocoa and kirsch. A finely boned wine which balances the power of fruit with a delicacy of structure. Rich, opulent fruit marries with cinnamon/ nutmeg/ aniseed spice, all framed by a structure of chocolatey textured tannins which partner the persistence of flavour perfectly.

Sunraysia is the place which ripens grapes to heightened levels of flavour and mouth filling complexity.

1 - 12 of 13 Wines By Mitchelton
In 1967 Melbourne entrepreneur Ross Shelmerdine commissioned wine industry stalwart Colin Preece to find the best site for premium wine grape growing anywhere in south eastern Australia

Preece chose an old grazing estate, then known as Blackwood Park, in the Nagambie district in central Victoria for its climate, soil and proximity to the waterways. The site's history stretches back to 1836, when the explorer Major Thomas Mitchell crossed the river on his 900 kilometre journey from Sydney to Melbourne, at a place called Mitchellstown. Ross Shelmerdine called his fledgling winery Mitchelton, a derivation of Mitchellstown and the vineyard's first sod was turned in 1969. Don Lewis joined Preece for the fledgling winery's first vintage in 1973, and assumed the winemaker's mantle when Preece retired in 1974. That same year, Mitchelton's winery and spectacular cellar door complex, designed by renowned Australian architect Ted Ashton and complete with 55 metre tower, was officially opened.

Mitchelton

Highly Awarded Mitchelton has developed a reputation for consistently high quality table wines. The first trophy won in 1978, was for a Riesling, a variety Mitchelton is well respected for. In 2007, Mitchelton’s Blackwood Park Riesling celebrated 33 vintages. Mitchelton’s Shiraz wines have garnered great accolades. In a 1991 stunning double, Mitchelton won the Jimmy Watson Trophy for best dry one year old red for its 1990 Mitchelton Print Shiraz as well as winning Vineyard of the Year. Mitchelton won its first export award in 1986 and now offers its wine in 18 markets outside Australia including the UK, Europe, USA, Asia and South America.

The evolution of Mitchelton’s focus in the vineyard continues apace. Joining the Petaluma Group of wineries in 1994 and then the Lion Nathan wine group, Mitchelton’s wines continue to go from strength to strength. The investment in quality winemaking and viticulture practices that Mitchelton has always employed has seen the development of a strong mentoring culture which has woven a deep thread of Mitchelton’s home grown philosophy throughout the team.

Combining years of hands-on experience and an intimate understanding of the estate, the Mitchelton philosophy is to harness the vineyard’s potential by unlocking the best from individual blocks through innovation and attention to detail in the vineyard and the winery. Coupled with judicious use of innovative winemaking techniques, this approach gives shape and definition to the expressive qualities of the Mitchelton vineyard, creating wines of distinct personality, finesse and longevity. With the focus on individual block-targeting, each soil profile is planted with the most suitable grape variety, clonal and rootstock combination. This intensive approach nurtures individual blocks separately, allowing every vine to achieve its full potential, revealing grapes of superior flavour and structure.

The team at Mitchelton are dedicated to managing their backyard, acting as custodians of a sustainable and distinct eco-system. The estate’s influential and ever-present neighbour, the Goulburn River demands a holistic winery and vineyard approach. Banked by red gums and widening into billabongs, the river is an intrinsic part of a sensitive natural cycle. Eco-friendly initiatives include: Establishing a unique and innovative winery wastewater wetlands system using indigenous native reed species to treat process water for irrigation reuse in the vineyard. This has involved community engagement through Landcare Victoria, the local Shire Council, schools and Catchment Management Authority.

In 2004, following 30 years of successful winemaking and leadership of the Mitchelton team, Don Lewis made the decision to pursue other challenges. Toby Barlow and John Beresford, as winemaker and viticulturist, continued to shape Mitchelton’s focus on working with the estate, the Rhone varieties and crafting Victorian shiraz. In 2007, Mitchelton’s assistant winemaker Ben Haines, after working with Toby and John for several vintages stepped into the role of Winemaker for Mitchelton. Mitchelton remains committed to producing superb regional wines from the varieties that do best here, Shiraz, Viognier, Riesling and Marsanne
