Mitolo Savitar Shiraz 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

This Shiraz is handpicked at 1-2 tons an acre from the northern section of the Mitolo vineyard, where the rocky, skeletal soils and low vigour leaf and bunch numbers heighten the fruit exposure, resulting in a wine that shows ripened cassis and restrained savory tannins. 10 days fermentation on skins in ndividual 2 ton fermentation vessels is followed by careful crushing and partial destemming. The wine then undergoes partial barrel fermentation and aging for 16 months in 90% new fine grained French oak. Opaque purple in color, with an intense combination of black plum, cherry and smoke with hints of French oak and spice. The palate is full bodied yet tight and focused. Flavors of pepper and blackcurrant dominate with hints of clove, tobacco and earth adding further layers. Full bodied on the palate, with restrained tannins, powerful and elegant with multi dimensional complexity.
