SUPER HOT PRICE!!

Mitolo’s first release, G.A.M. was named in honour of Frank Mitolo’s three children – Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Rich and concentrated, deliciously fleshy and full bodied with plush yet granular texture. The fruits of the nose carry through on the palate and complex savoury notes develop in the glass, adding layers to the wine. Firm yet supportive tannins marry perfectly, giving ample structure and length, delivering a smooth, dry-textured finish.

Critic awards

Deep, dark red/purple colour, with a bouquet of fresh herbs and blood plum, vivid and concentrated, with ample soft tannins in harmony with the fruit flavour, and a long, long carry. A big wine with richness, concentration, and a big future ahead of it.

— 95 points, The Real Review

Offering dark fruit richness with warm spice, game, floral and cedar nuances, the wine shows outstanding weight and intensity backed by silky texture and fine-grained tannins. It’s mouthfilling and immensely satisfying with a persistent engaging finish.

— 95 points, Wine Orbit

It’s a wine that instantly sucks you in from the first glance and the 2018 vintage does not disappoint. It opens with an impressive array of dark berry fruits – blackcurrant, mulberry and blackberry. They are big but balanced and supported with vanillin oak. It then slowly takes you on a journey through its savoury side – earth with dried sage and thyme giving an almost Mediterranean feel. The palate then is all about balance – that ripe fruit instantly generous and giving making it a very attractive drink right now with al-dente tannins providing some age worthy structure to a long finish. But when it is so good right now, why wait?

Hints of smoke and spice from the barrel treatment accent blackberry and blueberry on the nose of the full-bodied 2018 GAM Shiraz. Sturdy and savory, it’s a ripe, rich and dense wine, with a creamy mouthfeel framed by dusty tannins and finishing long, with hints of licorice.

— 93 points, Halliday Wine Companion

Sourced from the proprietary Lopesti vineyard near Port Willunga, a meld of loam and clay with a typical maritime accent. Separate parcels are fermented on skins for 10 days, cool and attenuated for extraction of noble tannins and yet, the oak subsumes all – at least at this early stage. Barrel-ferment aromas of baby back ribs; violet and salami aromas too. Dense. Black plum, hoisin sauce and Chinese lacquer.
