Mitolo Marsican Shiraz 2015
Special Price $190.00 Regular Price $235.00
A bestie! A best of - only made in the best years, from the best bits of the best vineyard and then only the best barrels are selected for this wine. The result is a deep and brooding wine packed with cherries, coffee, chocolate, blackberries and blueberries… pause for breath… olives, roasting meats and spice. It’s surprisingly light on its feet for such a complex and powerful wine.

The Mitolo’s arrived in OZ in the 1950’s, ex the Abruzzo winemaking region of Italy, and began market gardening. Later Frank started made wine for family and friends to drink. That was humming along until a quick chat turned into a 5-hour discussion with legendary winemaker Ben Glaetzer, culminating in a 6-word business plan written on a napkin – ‘Individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance and power’. Grapes are sourced from family friends and exceptional growers, the Lopresti's. Power comes from the heavy clay soils, elegance thanks to the gentle afternoon sea breezes. This inherent complexity ties in neatly with business plan and the winery motto, originally from Abruzzo, ‘Forte a Gentile: strong and gentle.’
