Today is a special day.

We release the much anticipated 2013 vintage of our Icon Single Vineyard Shiraz's, the G.A.M. 2013 and Savitar 2013, as well as the 2012 vintage of our flagship Serpico Cabernet Sauvignon.

James Halliday rated the 2012 vintage 10/10 and 2013 vintage 9/10 for red wines from McLaren Vale. We saw vintages of great fruit intensity, vibrant colour, seamless acidity and magnificent fruit concentration.

These are three wines that for me are heading straight to the cellar, with an optimum opening time of 7-10 years from now. Alternatively if you enjoy the purity of primary fruit, please decant for minimum two hours.

G.A.M. Shiraz 2013

My first ever wine, the soul of the Mitolo story, and named accordingly after my children Gemma, Alex and Marco. A single vineyard Shiraz from our Chinese Block, located only 5kms from the Gulf St Vincent, in Port Willunga. Heavy grey loam with black Biscay clay gives luscious flavours of dark plums, vanilla and black olive. Pair with baked veal and sage meatballs, with soft polenta.

Savitar Shiraz 2013

Savitar, the mythical dragon like beast, lies on one tiny section of the Chinese Block, of unforgiving rocky soils that naturally push the vines much harder, producing low yields of tiny but well structured berries. Highly perfumed nose with a much tighter overall structure. Black fruits, dried herbs, and earthy tones of liquorice and savoury leather with fine, grainy tannins. This wine is crying out for meat - Bistecca Fiorentina with all of the trimmings.

Serpico Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Serpico, our flagship Mitolo Cabernet, is made using the Amarone technique of drying grapes before fermentation. It's a process that concentrates flavour contributing mid palate plushness, complexity and mouth coating yet silky tannins. Dark fruit characteristics prevail of blackcurrant, Christmas cake and dark mocha chocolate, with mouthcoating and elegant tannins and a velvety finish. Match to big heart meat dishes, or as we do after a meal with sharp, hard cheese from the Veneto such as Asiago d'Allevo with walnuts and fig.
