Mitolo Savitar Shiraz 2007 (6 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Description:

VINEYARD INFORMATION

Like the G.A.M. Shiraz, the fruit for Savitar comes from the Lopresti vineyard, and more specifically the Chinese Block, which is located at the southern end of McLaren Vale, about 4km east of the coastal town of Port Willunga. The Savitar grapes come from one tiny section of this block: a particularly unforgiving, rocky patch of soil in the north eastern corner. Here, the vines are naturally pushed very hard, producing low yields of fruit. The berries are tiny but well-structured and packed full of flavour.

WINEMAKING

Each parcel of fruit for Savitar is fermented on skins for fifteen days. This slightly longer time on skins ensures a tighter overall structure setting up the framework for a wine built for ageing. Following fermentation, the wine is pressed, and transferred to oak barrels where it remains on light lees for approximately 18 months before it is carefully selected for the final blend.

Expert Reviews

Dense, deep purple-crimson; full-bodied, with rich and luscious plum, blackberry and dark chocolate is supported by good oak and appropriate tannins. - James Halliday

The saturated purple 2007 Savitar Shiraz delivers scents of underbrush, plum, and black fruits. Opulent, layered, and dense, this rich, succulent Shiraz will evolve for several years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2020. - The Wine Advocate

Winery Tasting Notes

Notes Image

Opaque black showing aromas of camphor and cassis mixed with cracked pepper, truffles and earth. Rich layered mouthfeel, full bodied and rich whilst maintaining admirable precision. All the grapes are picked on flavour ripeness which contributes to the soft, ripe tannins and vibrant fruit which is a key characteristic of all Mitolo wines. Savitar, the flagship of Mitolo Shiraz, is a tightly structured wine produced in very limited quantities, exhibiting powerful yet elegant and multi-dimensional flavours.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For such a young winery, Mitolo’s history is rich. It’s one studded with success, wide acclaim, and – most importantly – truly memorable wines. But that’s only to be expected from a winery which, since the very first day, has been motivated by three potent words:

Purity. Elegance. Power.

Those were the guiding principles Frank Mitolo wrote down when he created the winery in 1999. With his Italian heritage and a family history of working the land, Frank was only interested in pursuing excellence. And the results were there immediately in the release of the first Mitolo wine - the 2000 G.A.M. - named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Attracted by this commitment to only create wines of outstanding quality, acclaimed winemaker Ben Glaetzer joined Mitolo as a partner in 2001. With grapes sourced from two of Australia’s premier wine regions, Mclaren Vale and the Barossa Valley, Frank and Ben now work tirelessly to surpass their already impressive achievements. Mitolo Wines, praised by some of the world’s toughest critics, are now enjoyed in more than 20 countries around the world.

And that is just the start.
