From fruit grown to the Chinese Block on Lopresti vineyard in Willunga district at the southern end of McLaren Vale. Soils are heavy grey loam over sandstone intermixed with black Biscay clay, a hungry earth which naturally controls yield. The climate mirrors that of the Mediterranean, warm days and cool nights ensure even ripening and development of rich fruit flavours. GAM is opulent and robust, a Shiraz of great richness that's multilayered with complexity, it nevertheless retains a measure of finesse and the characteristic Mitolo softness.
The quality of Shiraz grown to Mitolo vineyards is the achievement of uncompromising standards in viticulture and the serendipitous confluence of growing conditions. A magnificent maritime climate yields 2⅓ tonnes of grapes per acre from vines aged an average of twenty years. Each parcel of Shiraz is fermented on skins for ten days at cool temperatures to preserve bright fruit characters without extracting hard or bitter tannins from seeds and skins. Upon completion the wines are gently pressed and filled to an extravagantly high proportion of new French and American oak hogsheads for eighteen months, before being considered for inclusion into the final assemblage. Alcohol 14.5%
TASTING NOTES
Deep, vibrant crimson red colour. Lifted pure aromatics of darker berry fruits and spice, blackberries and plum, mocha and toasty vanilla oak. The palate is powerful and finely focused with great depth of fruit character, well framed by fine grain tannins and drawn toward a long finish supported by naturally balanced acidity. Decant, breathe and serve alongside good beef with red wine jus and roast root vegetable.

About the Mitolo Winery
It was the vision of Frank and Simone Mitolo to create individual and handcrafted wines, made with passion and an uncompromising commitment to quality
Frank’s Italian heritage provided him with an early introduction to wine appreciation and winemaking, while his roots are rich in horticultural history spanning three generations. With the active involvement and support of his wife Simone and their children Gemma, Alexander and Marco being their inspiration, their first wine G.A.M., a 2000 McLaren Vale Shiraz was produced.
