94+ Points - Jay Miller (erobertparker.com)
The 2006 Shiraz “Savitar” was aged in 100% new oak, predominantly French. Purple-colored, the aromatics are a bit reticent initially, but soon scents of toasty oak, tar, licorice, scorched earth, and blueberry emerge. This leads to a wine which is more structured and less opulent than its peers. It will evolve for a minimum of 8-10 years and drink well through 2040. As a point of reference, the 2002 Savitar (rated 95) was presented. It is considerably more developed aromatically but still has a significant distance to travel prior to reaching its peak.
"For a winery only established in 1999 and dedicated to hand-crafted artisanal wines, Mitolo has consistently been a revelation in my tastings. Thanks to owner Frank Mitolo and his brilliant winemaker Ben Glaetzer, the quality has been truly splendid.” Robert Parker, Wine Advocate, November 2005
Italian family roots are the inspiration behind Frank Mitolo’s interest and passion for both good food and great wine. He founded Mitolo Wines in 1999 with the dream of producing wines of purity, individuality, elegance and power, and together with the enthusiasm and knowledge of his friend and partner Ben Glaetzer (an award winning winemaker), alongside an uncompromising commitment to quality, they have created one of Australia’s most awarded wineries receiving much international recognition and acclaim.
With Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon fruit sourced from both the McLaren Vale and Barossa Valley Frank and Ben continue to produce an impressive and consistently high-scoring range of single-vineyard red wines, all the while striving to top their already impressive achievements.
