Savitar Shiraz

McLaren Vale

“Savitar” is a mythical dragon-like monster, and this wine is so named because of the impression Frank Mitolo and Ben Glaetzer had upon tasting one particular lot in the Willunga vineyard. They were so blown away they decided to make a Shiraz from just the small lot, and Savitar was created.

This Shiraz is handpicked at 1-2 tons an acre from the northern section of the Mitolo vineyard, where the rocky, skeletal soils and low vigour leaf and bunch numbers heighten the fruit exposure, resulting in a wine that shows ripened cassis and restrained savory tannins.
