Palate Profile

Like the mythical dragon after which it is named, Savitar is a wine of power, polish, and an elegantly long tail.

Elegant yet powerful, concentration and restraint working hand in hand. A polished palate with fine graphite texture. Awash with flavours of blueberry compote, blood plums, dark chocolate, fine sage-like savoury elements and Sichuan pepper. The precise and driven tannin line is almost steely, giving immense presence and intensity to the wine, incredible length, and a very finessed finish.

Critic Awards

This is serious, precise and driven and, again, sourced from Whites Valley, as is the 2019 GAM Shiraz. The extract here is savory and firm; the fruit is driven by tannins, and they really screw down the fruit and compress it in the glass. It’s tight. One can see that the longevity of this wine may outweigh that of the others, making it quite a layered and exciting wine to drink.

Classically dense and modern, the 2019 Savitar is a massive crowd-pleaser that will knock your socks off. There is immense colour - it's almost black as the ace of spades. The nose is hit with wave after wave of dark fruits, liquorice, blackberry, chocolate and spice. It's big but balanced; luscious flavours and sweet oak provide a long, supple finish. An excellent vintage of Savitar.

Medium deep crimson. Black cherry, blackcurrant, dark chocolate mocha aromas with hint oyster shell notes. Inky deep with ample dark cherry, blackberry, fine supple tannins and underlying mocha oak complexity. Finishes chalky/muscular firm and minerally.

Denser, more oaky and built for a longer life, perhaps, than its G.A.M. shiraz sibling. A regional stalwart, in the classicist mould. Coffee beans, vanilla, cedar and dark fruit allusions. Raspberry bonbon sweetness expands with air, sousing the finish. A bit hard to get past the oak at this stage, but time will surely imbue the benefit of the doubt.

This classically dense and modern example of McLaren Vale Shiraz is a massive crowd pleaser that will knock your socks off. You will find immense colour – it’s almost black as the ace of spades. Then wave after wave of dark fruits from liquorice, blackberry, chocolate through to cocoa and spice. It’s big, but balanced too with luscious flavours and sweet oak providing a long, supple finish.
