Mitolo Nessus Shiraz 2019 (6 x 750mL) McLaren Vale, SA

Description:

Vintage

Low growing season rainfall, combined with a hot summer, led to an early and condensed vintage. Yields were below average, a result of the dry conditions and an intense November hail storm event. The moderating influence of Gulf St Vincent, reliable spring rainfall, and supplementary summer drip irrigation allowed us to successfully cope with the challenges of the season. Fruit quality was tremendous with small berries full of concentrated flavour. Intense aromatics are a hallmark of the vintage.

Expert Reviews

It’s wonderfully ripe and inviting on the nose showing Black Doris plum, blueberry, warm spice, violet and toasted nut aromas, leading to a gorgeously flavoursome palate delivering excellent fruit purity and power, finishing long and delectable. - 93 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit. January 2021

This is a whole lot of shiraz for not a lot of cash which can be picked up in Dan Murphy’s and BWS. It’s typical for early drinking McLaren Vale. Ripe and rich, it’s all about black fruits – mulberry and blackberry with some rum and raisin thrown in supported by older oak. The palate is then user friendly – plump, ripe and fleshy delivering good flavour and generosity for everyday drinking with a spicy meaty finish that draws you in to a second glass. It’s hard to fault for the price. - 90 Points, Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot. January 2021

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

When the Mitolo family arrived in Australia in the 1950s they brought their viticulturist ancestry and an ethos belonging to the Abruzzo region - forte e gentile or strong and gentle. The family worked hard to become successful market gardeners while staying true to their origins where food and wine, family and friends, laughter and celebration were an integral part of life.

After years of working in his family’s potato business, Frank Mitolo started making wine for family and friends.

In 1999, after a now legendary 5 hour discussion with winemaker Ben Glaetzer, the pair fashioned a dream of making the ultimate expression of McLaren Vale’s rich provenance of soils. They jotted a six word business plan on the back of a napkin: individuality, integrity, quality, purity, elegance and power.

The first Mitolo wine, the 2000 G.A.M. Shiraz was named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alex and Marco. Since then Mitolo have added another 16 wines to the range each with its own distinct personality and story.

The winery works closely with its growers, the Loprestis. The Loprestis, also Italian immigrants and old friends of the Mitolos, have an affinity with their land, producing fruit of the highest quality. The fruit is the essence of Mitolo, with a depth of flavour garnered from heavy clay soils, yet freshness thanks to the gentle afternoon sea breeze. In the winery, Ben takes a ‘hands-off’ approach, fermenting cool to retain purity, and using a range of barrel coopers to generate complexity yet respect and enhance the fruit.

The Mitolo Italian heritage runs strongly through the range using the Italian varieties and techniques. Business meetings are still held over Sunday lunch with traditional Italian food and of course Mitolo wine shared with friends, old and new. And at the heart of it all, in the wine style, in the people, is the motto that the Mitolos brought from Abruzzo - forte a gentile: strong and gentle.
