75cl * Vegan * 14.5% ABV * McLaren Vale, 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.
This McLaren Vale wine has a dense purple colour and an almost black appearance. Dark chocolate, anise and allspice dominate the nose, supported by hints of French oak, cherries and coffee. A fresh and juicy mid-palate shrouds tannin and length. The wine has flavours of fresh cut plums and liquorice with hints of blackberry and espresso. A long and lingering finish. Will cellar well for up to 10 years post vintage date.
