Mitolo GAM Shiraz 2002 750ml, McLaren Vale


Expert Reviews

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 95 to 97 pts - Produced from 26-year old vines and aged in French oak (80% new), the 2002 Shiraz G. A. M. reveals tremendous fruit purity, but it does not yet reveal secondary nuances. The inky blue/purple color is accompanied by aromas of ink, camphor, graphite, blackberries, and blueberries. While it possesses tremendous purity as well as an enormous full-bodied texture, it is neither heavy nor overbearing. This stunning Shiraz may be even better than the 2002 Savitar. Time will tell. Barrel samples of three 2002s revealed tremendous potential in what appears to be the finest efforts Mitolo has yet produced. There are 300-400 cases of each, and all three are scheduled to be bottled in October. Kudos to young importer (31 years old!) Ben Hammerschlag for unearthing these potential superstars. - Aug 2003

James Halliday's Wine Companion - 94 pts - Supple and perfectly balanced, medium-bodied black fruits, dark chocolate and spice; sweet fruit on the finish; very stylish wine.Date tasted 11 Mar 2004. Drink by 2017
