2009 Mitolo Savitar Shiraz
"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
