Mitchell Harris Chardonnay 2021
$ 46.00 incl. GST
Grown in the Wightwick vineyard situated 500 meters above sea level just to the North of Ballarat. This wine boasts notes of white nectarine and lemon curd, and its soft and creamy texture makes it a truly indulgent experience. On the palate, a long, slightly chalky phenolic grip and tangy acid tail are expertly balanced with subtle toast and spice notes, courtesy of its maturation in French oak hogsheads, 50% of which are new.
Mitchell Harris / Pyrenees And Ballarat, Vic
Cool Climate Stylings From One Of The Most Passionate Advocates For Victorian Wine
Famed for an excellent wine bar and cellar door venue in Ballarat, Mitchell Harris is a multi-faced wine business of two families. The affable John Harris earned his winemaking stripes as chief sparkling winemaker of Domaine Chandon before the families launched their own operation in 2008, becoming Ballarat’s first true food and wine destination, underpinned by a smart, small batch wine label.
Long standing relationships with good growers have been maintained, most notably with the Peerick vineyard in the gorgeous Victorian Pyrenees. Winemaking ethos is of contemporary minimal handling, with a leaning to wild ferments, considered use of French oak, and gentle extraction. The wines are stylistically clean and pure, with John Harris a renowned tireless campaigner in the promotion of Victoria’s wines and regions.
