Wine tasting notes

Bramble herbs with hints of cracked black pepper underpinned with earthy, dark fruit characters of Satsuma plum, black cherry and liquorice. Grenache plays a leading role, a dark cherry lift with a seductive, almost slippery mid palate. Shiraz provides some weight to the juicy mouth feel as well as dark fruits and earthy olive tapenade characters. Finally, Sagrantino, despite its low proportion, adds beautiful dry earth, cigar box-like savoury lift with those signature tannins giving a drying, snappy finish.

Vinification notes

The Shiraz and Grenache parcels were kept separate until the final blending stage just prior to bottling. Both parcels were destemmed without crushing then pumped over once daily. The ferment was kept cool throughout in an attempt to extract the tannin, colour and flavour very softly and to hold onto the pure fruit characters that are a signature for Mitolo. The wine was kept in one and two-year-old barrels, all of French origin, for 18 months before being blended. Only a small amount of Sagrantino was added to the final blend, also from the Lopresti vineyard, to enhance the structure of the wine. The final blend was clarified by racking only, and bottled without fining or filtration.
