Earlier this week, Wineservice hosted Hilary Mitchell from the Mitchell Winery. Widely recognised as one of the world’s great Riesling producers, Mitchell Winery is a small family-owned winery in the Clare Valley, South Australia. From their mature, dry -grown vineyards, the family produces an exclusive range of high quality table wines. As well as the Riesling, they craft intensely flavoured, well-structured, long-living reds from Shiraz, Cabernet and Grenache.
Hilary presented a vertical tasting of 15 vintages of her family’s Watervale Riesling dating back to 2001. This was proof that these wonderful wines age and develop beautifully. We also threw in a few reds at the end, just in case not enough had been tried!
