The quality of Shiraz grown to Mitolo vineyards is the achievement of uncompromising standards in viticulture and the serendipitous confluence of growing conditions. A magnificent maritime climate yields 2⅓ tonnes of grapes per acre from vines aged an average of twenty years. Each parcel of Shiraz is fermented on skins for ten days at cool temperatures to preserve bright fruit characters without extracting hard or bitter tannins from seeds and skins. Upon completion the wines are gently pressed and filled to an extravagantly high proportion of new French and American oak hogsheads for eighteen months, before being considered for inclusion into the final assemblage. Alcohol 14.5%
Deep, vibrant crimson red colour. Lifted pure aromatics of darker berry fruits and spice, blackberries and plum, mocha and toasty vanilla oak. The palate is powerful and finely focused with great depth of fruit character, well framed by fine grain tannins and drawn toward a long finish supported by naturally balanced acidity. Decant, breathe and serve alongside good beef with red wine jus and roast root vegetable.
