Every Shiraz grape grown by Mitolo is cultivated and nurtured with passion and zeal, sparing no effort or resource to ensure that the best of everything is brought together to construct wines of elegance, purity and power. Savitar is the flagship Mitolo Shiraz, a tightly structured wine produced by maestro Ben Glaetzer in very limited qualities. Savitar features heady aromas and a powerful yet elegant multi dimensional palate. Shiraz is sourced from a single superb site, the elite Lopresti Vineyard's Chinese Block in Willunga, at the southern end of McLaren Vale.
Only the best quality fruit is ever considered by Mitolo, to be aged in the finest oak, for elegant wines of intense richness and complexity. Parcels of Shiraz from vines averaging over twenty years of age are grown on rocky, skeletal soils in the northeast part of the vineyard. Fruit is fermented on skins for fifteen days at 28C to 32C, softening the musts and releasing juices. A slightly longer period on skins ensures a tighter overall structure. Batches are pressed and treated to partial barrel ferment, followed by a natural malolactic before racking. Savitar is matured in a selection of completely new, medium to light toasted, American and Alliers/ Nevers French oak barriques for a term of eighteen months.
TASTING NOTES
Opaque black in colour. The most brooding of all the Mitolo wines, aromas of camphor and cassis mixed with cracked pepper, truffles and earth. Layered textural mouthfeel, full bodied and rich whilst maintaining admirable precision. The palate is full bodied, meaty and complex. Well integrated oak and tannin provide elements of structure to the wine, it finishes with impressive length.

More About Mitolo Wines
It was the vision of Frank and Simone Mitolo to create individual and handcrafted wines, made with passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality
Frank‚Äôs Italian heritage provided him with an early introduction to wine appreciation and winemaking, while his roots are rich in horticultural history spanning three generations. With the active involvement and support of his wife Simone and their children Gemma, Alexander and Marco being their inspiration, their first wine G.A.M., a 2000 McLaren Vale Shiraz was produced.
