Mitolo

South Australia, south australia Australia

McLaren Vale-based Mitolo is a family-owned winery established in 1999 by Frank Mitolo, whose Italian roots inspired his early interest in and enthusiasm for good food and great wine. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer became a partner in the business in 2001. The fusion of Frank's knowledge of the land and business acumen and Ben's winemaking talent has resulted in Mitolo becoming one of Australia's most awarded wineries. From the approachable 'Jester' range to the premium wines that wow the critics, Mitolo has made a name for itself as one of the Australian producers to watch.

Overlooking the coast, the vineyard in McLaren Vale has heavy grey loam over sandstone soil with black cracking Biscay clay. The proximity to the ocean ensures cool afternoon breezes that help retain good acidity levels and aid in the development of complex flavours in the grapes.

The 'Jester' Shiraz has plenty of ripe berry fruit and offers everything you want from a vibrant McLaren Vale Shiraz, including remarkable value. Of the premium wines, perhaps the most individual wine from Mitolo is 'Serpico', Frank's nod in the direction of Amarone. The Cabernet Sauvignon grapes were dried for about five weeks after harvesting. This period of 'appassimento' gives the wine a dried fruit yet vibrant character that ensures its intensity is nicely balanced.

The ‘7th Son’ Grenache/Shiraz/Sagrantino is quite a different wine for Mitolo and an ode to two of McLaren Vale’s most revered varieties. The Grenache portion, sourced from old bush vines planted on the sands of Blewitt Springs, provides rustic, lighter, earthier flavours to the fruit-forward Shiraz, sourced from the Lopresti vineyards. Sagrantino adds a moreish Italian twist to this classic McLaren Vale blend.
