Mitchelton Estate Blanc de Blancs Cuvee
The Mitchelton NV Blanc de Blanc Cuvee has intense and complex aromas with poise and depth of character. Bursting with white jasmine florals and grapefruit notes coupled with toasted almonds, brioche and creamy nougat. Distinct yet classic pale straw in colour with a bright gold lustre.
The rich history of Mitchelton stretches back to 1836, when explorer Major Thomas Mitchell came across land during a 900-kilometer journey from Sydney to Melbourne. Over a century later in 1969, the entrepreneurial Ross Shelmerdine planted his first crop of vines there, naming his new winery after the historic figure. The bottles which were produced, with a focus on Riesling and Shiraz, were soon enjoyed by wine lovers around Australia and were also highly awarded on the world stage. In 1991, Mitchelton won both the Jimmy Watson Trophy for best dry one year old red (the 1990 Print Shiraz) as well as Vineyard of the Year.
