The G.A.M. Shiraz comes from the Chinese Block vineyard which is located in the Willunga district at the southern end of McLaren Vale. The soils, which are heavy grey loam soils over sandstone, intermixed with black Biscay clay, combined with the maritime climate, contribute to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins.
Mitolo delivers wines that express purity of varietal flavour, show elegance of structure with soft tannins whilst being rich, powerful and complex. All the grapes are picked on flavour ripeness which contributes to the soft, ripe tannins and vibrant fruit which is a key characteristic of all Mitolo wines. G.A.M. is opulent and robust, with a focus on finesse and multilayered complexity. It exhibits typical Mitolo softness and richness.

Deep purple-crimson; the wine is so potent and concentrated on the spice, licorice, dark chocolate and black-fruited bouquet and palate you don't initially think about the alcohol, but it progressively becomes more obvious.

Winery Tasting Notes
Intense deep crimson
Brooding fruit profile, black cherry, plum, chocolate and subtle minty herbal characters with strong support from savoury oak notes of malt, cedar, clove which will integrate with time to harmony.
The fruit shines brighter on the palate with blackberry and plum, supported by quality savoury oak flavours of mocha and vanilla. The tannins are soft and the flavours deep and long creating a generosity, a sense of comfort, that is such a feature of this variety in our unique part of the world.
