Mitolo Wines is a family owned business founded in 1999 by Frank and Simone Mitolo. With his Italian heritage and three generations of his family working as agriculturists, Frank set out to create wines of individuality, integrity and quality. Fruit is sourced from sustainably farmed vineyards located in McLaren Vale and the Barossa Valley. The Willunga district vineyards, planted on heavy grey loam soil over sandstone, intermixed with black Biscay clay, are located on the southern tip of the McLaren Vale and the Greencock vineyard located in northern part of the Barossa Valley is planted on free draining loam over limestone. The focus is on Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. Other varieties include Sangiovese and Vermentino. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer was born in Adelaide and began his career working as a cellar hand at Barossa Valley Estate and then as winemaker at Tyrrell’s. In 2001 Ben became a partner and since then Mitolo has gone from strength to strength.

Tasting notes
Plum and blackberry fruit aromas mingle with smoky,spicy oak. Rich and opulent, with dark blackberry fruit on the palate, lead to restrained, harmonious tannins on the long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 93 points (Feb 2012)
Aged 14 months in 100% new oak (90% French / 10% American), the 2009 Savitar Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color and an earthy / savory nose with notes of tree bark, meat, tobacco and black truffles with a warm mulberry and black plum core plus a fragrant hint of sandalwood. Full bodied with plenty of mouth-filling savory and blackberry flavors, itís well supported with very crisp acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, finishing long. Still a little tight, it should drink best 2013 to 2020+.
 Wine Enthusiast 91 points (Sep 2013)
This dark-fruited, full-bodied Shiraz isn’t for the faint of heart. Espresso, dark chocolate, roast meat and plum notes come together in a creamy-textured wine that finishes with a tart, hard edge of acidity and a dusting of cocoa powder-like tannins.
