|10% off any 12 bottles.||12 - 12||10 %|
Grown at Moonambel in Victoria’s Pyrenees ranges. Fermentation is open, with maturation in old French oak hogsheads. A seductive nose of sour cherries, with pure and juicy fruit, with a weave of dark chocolate and cocoa. Tannins are perky and with enough firmness to give some real character here. A delicious, bright Sangio in its element with spaghetti and meatballs.
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.
