About

93+

"Aged 14 months in 100% new oak (90% French / 10% American), the 2009 Savitar Shiraz has a deep garnet-purple color and an earthy / savory nose with notes of tree bark, meat, tobacco and black truffles with a warm mulberry and black plum core plus a fragrant hint of sandalwood. Full bodied with plenty of mouth-filling savory and blackberry flavors, it’s well supported with very crisp acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, finishing long. Still a little tight, it should drink best 2013 to 2020+."

93 Josh Raynolds - Vinous Media

"Glass-staining purple. A kaleidoscopic bouquet of raspberry and blackberry preserves, oak spices, potpourri and smoky minerals. Deep, weighty and powerful but almost shockingly lively, offering fresh black raspberry, mulberry and Asian spice flavors, with candied violet and vanilla notes building with air. Finishes with serious length and superb clarity. Very spicy and rich but also very nicely balanced."

91 Wine Enthusiast

"This dark-fruited, full-bodied Shiraz isn't for the faint of heart. Espresso, dark chocolate, roast meat and plum notes come together in a creamy-textured wine that finishes with a tart, hard edge of acidity and a dusting of cocoa powder-like tannins. -JC"

90 Wine Spectator

"Supple, ripe and plush, bursting with cinnamon-accented black cherry flavor that courses through the long, vivid finish. Shows depth and distinction. Drink now through 2019. 150 cases imported. -HS "

Product Description:

"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 a tightly structured wine produced in very limited quantities. Powerful yet elegant Savitar is opulent, brooding and intense.

Dark, brooding plum and blackberry fruit with a decent lick of smoky, spicy oak. Rich and opulent, the palate is an attack on the senses, however it is also restrained by encompassing but silky tannins. There is layer upon layer of flavours from the dark and brooding blackberry fruit to the more subtle spicy, toasty oak." - Winery
