Contrary to common expectation, this wine is named for a pepper tree in the vineyard, not because it smells peppery. The 2010 vintage brought out the best of most South Australian wineries. Mitchell wines have always been well priced, and they're bargains in years such as 2010. The colour is deep red-purple; the bouquet bright and fresh, with floral and star-anise notes, the latter typical of the '10 vintage from the Barossa up to Clare. It's full-bodied and smooth, rich and with spot-on ripeness and excellent balance. Enjoy it any time in the next 25 years. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 95/100.

Food: Most red-meat dishes and hard cheeses, especially rare-grilled steak and aged cheddar, gruyere or Comte.
