The back label speaks to a mythical dragon like monster….the Savitar. The bottle is certainly monstrous: thick of neck, solid of body.
Mitolo, Savitar, Shiraz, McLaren Vale, 2016
Like a broad river with a strong current: this implies power and complexity through the depth of aromas: clove and licorice spice, rich plum, blackberry coulis and melting dark chocolate with toasted nutty oak. Opening broad with equal parts black fruits and savoury leather with McLaren Vale graphite minerality keeping the palate rich without lazily straying to opulence. Powerful and ageworthy.
