2003 Mitolo "Savitar" Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia

SKU #1012773 94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2003 Shiraz Savitar is a prodigious offering. Made from 30- to 50-year-old Shiraz vines in the Willunga district of McLaren Vale, it was aged 18 months in 100% new French barrels and small foudres. This elegant Shiraz boasts an opaque purple color along with sumptuous blueberry, blackberry, and cassis notes intermixed with touches of white flowers, licorice, camphor, and graphite. A compellingly textured, rich, super-endowed red, it combines power with finesse. (RP) Inner quote mark (10/2004)

95 points James Halliday

Outer quote mark Full-bodied but supple and long in the mouth; spice, dark chocolate and blackberry; fine tannins. Inner quote mark (7/2011)

Jancis Robinson

Outer quote mark This is a selection from the Lopresti vineyard named after a mythical monster of which only about a quarter the quantity of GAM is made. They are looking for tighter tannins (yikes!), more minerality and restraint. This a wine for the serious long term. Lower yields and all new oak. Intense essence of Shiraz. Fresh lots of fruit with tobacco notes. Chewy with black cherry notes. Liquorice and masses of alcohol but well balanced. 17.5/20 Points (JR) Inner quote mark (1/2007)
