The wine does express its regional origin courtesy of the earthy dark chocolate subtext, but the question is why was it necessary to end up with such high alcohol; savoury bitter chocolate, prune, blackberry and liquorice are the drivers of the palate.

Best matched with the following food groups

The Mitolo Savitar Shiraz comes from the Chinese Block vineyard which is located in the Willunga district at the southern end of McLaren Vale. Parcels of fruit from vines averaging 30 years of age are grown on rocky, skeletal soils in the northeast part of the vineyard. The fruit, which is handpicked typically yields only 1.5 tonnes per acre.

Mitolo delivers wines that express purity of varietal flavour, show elegance of structure with soft tannins whilst being rich, powerful and complex. All the grapes are picked on flavour ripeness which contributes to the soft, ripe tannins and vibrant fruit which is a key characteristic of all Mitolo wines. Savitar, the flagship Mitolo Shiraz, is powerful yet elegant, opulent, brooding and intense.

Each parcel of fruit for Savitar was fermented on skins for 15 days at 28-32°C to soften the skins and release the juice. A slightly longer period on skins ensures a tighter overall structure. The wine is then pressed, and undergoes partial barrel fermentation, followed by a natural malolactic fermentation, before racking.

Reviews and Accolades

Mitolo ‘Savitar’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2012: A patch of a single vineyard or more precise the north eastern corner of the Chinese block on Flour Mill Road. The nose is dark fruits and wet rich soil, the quality apparent at this stage it is gorgeous in the mouth reaching all parts and ringing the bells or blowing the whistle on the way, 97 points worth $80 for those that have it.”
97 Points – The End Scribble, Tony Keys, May 2015

“Just like the mythical dragon it is named after, the Savitar is a big and powerful McLaren Vale shiraz. Maturation in French and American oak, layers of plush plum and black fruit, integrated spice, a firm tannin structure and excellent longterm cellaring potential.”
Illawarra Mercury, Kerry Skinner, May 2015

Deep crimson-purple; the wine does express its regional origin courtesy of the earthy dark chocolate subtext, but the question is why was it necessary to end up with such high alcohol; savoury bitter chocolate, prune, blackberry and licorice are the drivers of the palate. 93 POINTS  – James Halliday, Wine Companion , February 2013
