Why We Love This Wine

The Mitolo family migrated to Australia bringing their viticultural ancestry and an ethos belonging to the Abruzzo region - "forte e genile" or strong & gentle. Frank Mitolo eventually started making wines but just for family & friends. In 1999, Frank got together with winemaker Ben Glaetzer fashioning a dream of making the ultimate expression of Mclaren Vale's rich provenance of soils encapsulated in 6 words: individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance, & power. With 17 wines now in their range, the winery works closely with its Italian immigrant growers, the Loprestis, who have developed an affinity for the land producing optimal quality fruit. The depth of flavor garnered from the heavy clay soils buoyed by freshness from the afternoon sea breezes is the essence of Mitolo. They take a hands off approach in wine development using cool fermentation to retain purity and utilizing a range of barrel coopers to generate complexity while respecting & enhancing the fruit. This elegant Mclaren Vale Shiraz expresses cranberry & raspberry fruit characters with dark chocolate hints capturing soft, silky, & seductive tannins. This would pair perfectly with a Classic, Slow Cooked BBQ Beef Brisket.
