Description

Mitolo Angela Shiraz 2019

Mitolo Angela Shiraz has a lifted pure ripe berry aromas with subtle notes of mint and dried herbs. Powerful and concentrated, the full-bodied and dry palate has fine-grained tannins, great structure and bright acidity. Seamlessly integrating blackberry, plum and cassis flavours with subtle vanilla spice from oak ageing, ground coffee and black olive notes. A slightly different expression of Shiraz with a more savoury nature.

100% Shiraz. The fruit comes from Sandra's block on the southern end of MaLaren Vale near the seaside town of Willunga. The black biscay clay soils contain rocky fragments that have been sheared off the nearby hills and is free draining. The vines are around 30+ years old and grow at an altitude of 25 metres.

Destemming and gentle crushing of the fruit, pumping over once daily for around 10 days. The ferment is kept cool in a combination of 10% new and one- or two-year-old French oak barrels for 18 months before blending. Clarification of the final blend by racking, then bottling without fining or filtering.

Ageing potential: 2–6 years from vintage
