The ever present influence of the Goulburn River has, over the past 100 thousand years, deposited sediments, molded the distinct gently undulating landforms, slowly segregating and grading the diverse and unique soils that now occur across the Mitchelton Estate. The alluvial river sediments on which the Mitchelton Estate is founded come from a wide range of sources; from the granite Strathbogie Ranges in the east; the mudstone sediments of the Graytown Hills and from the ancient marine deposits of the mountains to the south. This diverse origin of soils, combined with the slow methodical deposition process of the riverine landscape has resulted in the diverse range of soils on Mitchelton Estate. The surrounding mountains and hills contain minor traces of gold resulting in traces of fine washed alluvial deposits interspersed in the Goulburn River sediments. Who knows, maybe it is the interaction of the vine roots with fine flakes of alluvial gold that give the wines that unique gilded edge?

The unique characteristics of each of the soil types interact in a variety of complex ways with the vine roots. This soil vine interaction changes with each combination of grape variety distinctly matched to each soil type. The complexities of water, soil and canopy management that Viticultural Manager John Beresford applies enhances this intricate interaction even further. The result is truly unique wines that are derived from these complex interactions; some of these interactions are scientifically exacted, while with other interactions that we know influence the wines in powerful ways; the details of just how are still to be discovered.
