Region Australia, South Australia, McLaren Vale

Alcohol/vol 14.5%
A dense ruby/purple colour. It possesses layers of dried spice, coffee, blackcurrant and the wine displays fullness, freshness and seamless oak integration. This comforting wine requires equally comforting food, pappardelle with duck ragu.

Fashioned from a McLaren Vale vineyard, the 2005 Shiraz G.A.M. (named after the Mitolo children Gemma, Alexander, and Marco) is a deep ruby/purple-hued effort displaying beautiful blackberry, white pepper, licorice, and toasty oak notes. Rich, full-bodied, and intense, with blueberry and blackberry flavors, sweet tannin, and excellent purity, it is a tour de force in winemaking. Enjoy it over the next decade.

More in line with a previous bottle, the 2005 Mitolo Shiraz G.A.M.showed straight forward notes of dark fruit, blueberry, earth and toasty oak. The palate was a let down though and lacked structure and depth, coming across as borderline sweet and a little simple. Still, this has serious fruit, a lush texture and a long finish.

Winemaker Ben Glaetzer has crafted yet another excellent wine for the Mitolo family, and even though the Reiver Shiraz seems a touch better this vintage, the G.A.M. is no slouch. Its bouquet of vanilla, spice and plum pudding even smells rich, and that's followed by a medium- to full-bodied wine with a creamy texture and authoritative fruit flavors. Shows a touch of warmth on the finish, but also spice notes and some dusty tannins. Drink 2008-2015.
