Nothing says Christmas like a glass of sparkling shiraz, highlighting dark berries, sweet plum, cherry and spices.
It wouldn't be a Mitchell Christmas if we didn't pop a bottle of our Sparkling Peppertree Shiraz as the kids sit around the Christmas tree, tearing the wrapping paper on their presents to shreds.
It's been a tradition in our family since the first year we introduced the Peppertree Sparkling Shiraz to the Mitchell collection back in the early 90's, and no doubt it will be carried through many more generations of Mitchell's yet to come.
While we enjoy it year-round, it's a great drop to have on hand during the festive season, as the simple addition of our sparkling red can transform any table into something spectacular.
In our eyes, Christmas just wouldn't be the same without a glass or two of red bubbles!
Bright ruby in the glass and a fine bead on the tongue lifts a youthful sour cherry flavour with earthy undertones, leading into a lingering plummy richness. Simply magnificent...
Our Sparkling Peppertree Shiraz is a super versatile drop, as it matches wonderfully with all the traditional Christmas dishes, from the Christmas turkey to roast ham, and barbecues to seafood - it goes with pretty well anything with robust flavours.
While us Aussies can't claim the Shiraz variety ourselves, Sparkling Shiraz is a wine style that is uniquely ours, no one else in the world has grasped this style and proudly made it their own like us Aussie's have, so get your orders in and celebrate this Christmas with a bottle of our Sparkling Peppertree Shiraz!
You could say that a love for fine wine runs in our blood. As kids, we loved growing up on the family property, helping in the vineyards and getting our hands dirty in the winery.
We watched mum and dad working hard to establish and grow Mitchell Wines; passionately tending the vines, making wines, and taking them to the world. Theyve done this for almost 45 years and now it seems, its our turn.
As the third generation of Mitchell's working in the business, we are thrilled to continue our parents and grandparents legacy. But rest assured, mum and dad will still be here to help out, as they love having their say and being involved, which we wouldnt change for the world.
And over the last few years, we've been tinkering away on our own Mitchell label, combining our learnings over our years together with our vision for the future. It is our newest addition to the family and is aptly named Kinsfolk!
