Mitolo, G.A.M, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2015

 

Creamy black fruit, pulsating with each sniff: fragrant, lifted and perfumed. Hints of earthier baked red capsicum and terracotta. A full and energetic performance from start to finish with layers of that rich, creamy black berry and cherry with a savoury/sweet molasses tang bordering a tarry underlay and suggestion of spearmint. Tannins starting to integrate as it cruises into its 4th year, yet it still delivers a juicy finish.  Plenty of time left.
