Angela Shiraz

Angela Shiraz


A slightly different expression of Shiraz, Angela is lifted with pure, ripe berry flavours at the forefront and subtle oak, allowing the fruit flavours to shine.

Awash with ripe plum fruit, it is framed by savoury notes of cedar, earth and ground coffee. Powerful and concentrated, the flavours integrate seamlessly with the fine-grained tannins and bright acidity. 

McLaren Vale
two to six years
Food Pairing Notes
The earthiness and structure of this wine calls for rich, creamy and full flavoured food; perhaps an Agnolotti (hand shaped small ravioli) served with a butter and sage sauce.
Vineyard Notes
We source the Shiraz fruit for this wine from Sandra’s block, located at the southern end of McLaren Vale near the seaside town of Willunga. The soil and geology of this block differ slightly with less black Biscay clay and more alluvial Christies Beach formation. This soil type contains rocky fragments that have been sheared off the nearby hills and deposited in this soil millions of years ago, it is free draining, resulting in less vigour over spring and more content vines in the ripening period. This leads to a bright and uplifted wine style whilst retaining signature Mitolo Shiraz softness. VINE AGE: 30+ years ELEVATION: 25m above sea level SOIL TYPE: Black Biscay Clay
Winemaker Notes
Shiraz for Angela is destemmed and crushed gently then pumped over once daily for around ten days. 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 a combination of new (~10%) and one and two-year-old barrels, mainly of French origin, for 18 months before being blended. The final blend is clarified by racking only, and bottled without fining or filtration.
