Batches are filled to a selection of seasoned French oak barrels for completion of malolactic and eighteen months maturation before assemblage. The final inclusion of Lopresti Vineyard Sagrantino, contributing structure and enhancing complexity.

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%
 
Deep, vibrant crimson red colour. Lifted pure aromatics of darker berry fruits and spice, blackberries and plum, mocha and toasty vanilla oak.

"Another new winery predestined for success!" -James Halliday

The Mitolo Greenock vineyard lies approximately 15km to the North-West of the geographical heart of the Barossa Valley. The altitude of Greenock varies markedly with the undulating hills, the Mitolo vineyards sitting at approximately 440 metres ASL. The vineyard rows have a North/South orientation meaning the canopy captures maximum sunlight throughout the day and is cooled by the southerly valley winds during the afternoon. This orientation also reduces the risk of canopy damage during days of intense heat and hot northerly winds. Average daily maximum temperature during summer is 25 degrees with a cool 12 degrees average night temperature. The vineyard is supplementary drip irrigated as the light sandy soil has exceptionally poor water holding capacity, on average the vines receive only one period of non-rainfall irrigation per season.
