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.
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.
