2002 Mitolo G.A.M. Shiraz

McLaren Vale, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$120.00 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

Frank Mitolo is the largest onion and potato grower in the Southern Hemisphere and has recently turned his attention to wine with great success. Mitolo has engaged the services of Colin Glaetzer's son, Ben Glaetzer as winemaker. G.A.M. represents the first initial of each of the Mitolo children's first names - Gemma, Alex and Marco.

(Tasted in 2003) Tasting Notes: A big red. Very deep crimson colour with deep crimson hue. Superb nose with aroma of violets, spice and black pepper followed by a mocca end note. The palate is mouthfilling, displaying that wonderfully concentrated McLaren Vale Shiraz character. Flavours of spice, black cherry, vanilla and violet infusions are meshed with liquorice and plum. Excellent length and depth with smoky oak appearing. Fine grained tannins with very long aftertaste of black cherry, vanilla, plum, liquorice and spice.
Alc/Vol: 14.5%

Robert Parker's ReviewProduced 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.
