    Winemaker's Notes:

    G.A.M. represents the first initial of each of the Mitolo children's first names - Gemma, Alex and Marco.

    'Honor nostrorum liverorum pulchrorum'
    'In honour of our lineage'

    The Shiraz grapes for G.A.M. are hand harvested at around 3 tons an acre from the Willunga district of McLaren Vale, South Australia.

    Opaque black/purple. The nose shows concentrated blackberry with hints of spice and chocolate. An elegant yet robust palate, showing the Mitolo style softness and richness. Well structured with a concentration of pure plummy fruit. Will age well for at least a decade.

    96-100 points Robert Parker: "...spectacular...exhibits aromas of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, licorice, new oak, and scorched earth. This complex 2003 comes across as a hypothetical blend of a great La Mission-Haut-Brion from Bordeaux and a Rhone Valley Hermitage such as Chapoutier's Pavillon. Everthing is seamlessly integrated into this tour de force in winemaking. It should age for 10-15+ years."

    Critical Acclaim:

    The spectacular, dense ruby/purple-colored 2003 Shiraz G. A. M. (named after the Mitolo family’s three children) exhibits aromas of lead pencil shavings, blackberries, blueberries, cassis, licorice, new oak, and scorched earth. This complex 2003 comes across as a hypothetical blend of a great La Mission-Haut-Brion from Bordeaux and a Rhone Valley Hermitage such as Chapoutier’s Pavillon. Everything is seamlessly integrated into this tour de force in winemaking. It should age for 10-15+ years. Rating 96-100.
