STYLE

Angela is a slightly different expression of Shiraz which is sourced from Sandra’s block, located about 5km south of the Chinese Block we use for our G.A.M. Shiraz. We have always used grapes from Sandra’s block as a blending component in our Jester Shiraz but as this vineyard has matured, it has shown its potential to stand

alone as a single vineyard wine. We have always loved the slightly brighter fruit profile and complete structure that we get from Sandra’s block. It has the ideal power and weight to sit between our Jester Shiraz and premium G.A.M. Shiraz. Angela is lifted with pure, ripe berry flavours at the forefront and subtle oak, allowing the

fruit flavours to shine.

VINEYARD

We source the Shiraz fruit for this wine from Sandra’s block, located at the southern end of McLaren Vale near

the seaside town of Willunga. The soil and geology of this block differ slightly to Chinese Block, with less black

Biscay clay and more alluvial Christies Beach formation. This soil type contains rocky fragments that have been

sheared off the nearby hills and deposited in this soil millions of years ago. It is free draining, resulting in less

vigour over spring and more content vines in the ripening period. This leads to a bright and uplifted wine style

whilst retaining signature Mitolo Shiraz softness.

VINIFICATION

With the warm spring showing glimpses of an early summer for McLaren Vale we were lucky to recieve late summer rain which took some of the stress off the vines lengthening the ripening process resulting in a beautiful 2017 vintage. Shiraz for Angela is destemmed and crushed gently then pumped over once daily for around ten days. The ferment was kept cool throughout in an attempt to extract the tannin, colour and flavour very softly and to hold onto the pure fruit characters that are a signature for Mitolo. Angela fruit is then crushed, destemmed and fermented in open top two tonne fermenters. Macerated on skins for ten days and then transferred to 70% new oak for natural Malolactic fermentation and maturation.

Expert Reviews

Sourced from a single block contributed by a neighbouring family, also of Italian heritage. A tauter expression than the Savitar, but still definitively warm climate shiraz. Pepper grind, clove, mace and five-spice find confluence with blue to dark fruit allusions and florals, saturated and palate-staining. The finish is long, defined as much by the welcome line of granular tannins, as it is by the spurt of acidity. In all, a very good drink. - Ned Goodwin - Halliday Wine Companion

The sixth vintage of this wine is now made from 35-year-old vines. The 2017 Small Batch Series Angela Shiraz comes from the southern portion of McLaren Vale. Aged in 30% new oak, some cedar and vanilla notes accent red fruit flavors in this medium to full-bodied wine. Some savory-earthy notes and gentle tannins appear on the finish. Give it a year to better integrate the oak, then drink it over the next decade. - 92 Points, Joe Czerwinski - The Wine Advocate

Winery Tasting Notes

COLOUR

Deep dark and brooding garnet red

NOSE

Pure aromatics highlighting the true identity of the site, Crushed dried mint leaf and fennel seeds, blackberry and

satsuma plum, faint wafts of char and Asian five spice.

PALATE

Shows restraint from the cooler year, a soft approach precedes a wash of black fruit flavour, juicy tannins fill the

mouth and the wine finishes strong and long, with lovely crushed herb flavours.

FOOD MATCH

The earthiness and structure of this wine calls for rich, creamy and full flavoured food; perhaps an Agnolotti

(hand shaped small ravioli) served with a butter and sage sauce.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For such a young winery, Mitolo’s history is rich. It’s one studded with success, wide acclaim, and – most importantly – truly memorable wines. But that’s only to be expected from a winery which, since the very first day, has been motivated by three potent words:

Purity. Elegance. Power.

Those were the guiding principles Frank Mitolo wrote down when he created the winery in 1999. With his Italian heritage and a family history of working the land, Frank was only interested in pursuing excellence. And the results were there immediately in the release of the first Mitolo wine - the 2000 G.A.M. - named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Attracted by this commitment to only create wines of outstanding quality, acclaimed winemaker Ben Glaetzer joined Mitolo as a partner in 2001. With grapes sourced from two of Australia’s premier wine regions, Mclaren Vale and the Barossa Valley, Frank and Ben now work tirelessly to surpass their already impressive achievements. Mitolo Wines, praised by some of the world’s toughest critics, are now enjoyed in more than 20 countries around the world.

And that is just the start.
