Mitolo Marsican Shiraz
REGION: McLaren Vale
CELLARING: Six to thirty five years
HARVEST DATE: 12 March 2014
I named this wine after the rare Marsican Bear, native to the Abruzzo region. The same bear can be seen in the night sky over Italy forming the Ursa Major, a contellation that has been used as navigational reference point for millennia. Marsican is a tribute to my heritage, my father, and his enduring influence over me and our family. Frank Mitolo
A careful selection of the finest parcels of Shiraz from our most prized vineyards, made only in the best years, and produced in very limited quantities.
A distinct purity of dark brooding fruit on the nose. Cut plums and blackcurrant with hints of spice and earthiness. Impeccably balanced palate, fine grained tannins and flashes of white pepper. Will benefit from cool careful cellaring.
