Profile

“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.

Critic awards

From a single block, crushed and destemmed, matured in 100% new French oak for 18 months. It is a tribute to the power of the fruit that it has been able to stand alongside the oak, the combination absorbing the tannins. Will be very long lived.

— 95 points, Halliday Wine Companion

This vintage of Savitar is showing well. Just as ripe and rich as in the past, sweet purple-fruit tones akin to plum jam or blueberry conserve oozes from the glass, backed by soft earthy dried herb and spice notes and a little vanillin oak. The palate is plump and soft edged, but lifted by acidity and drying sinewy tannins. A slightly bitter oak note creeps in on the close but isn't enough to detract from the high-powered yet balanced nature of this cellar-worthy wine.
