Winemaker Notes

G.A.M. represents the first initial of each of the Mitolo children's first names - Gemma, Alex and Marco. In the tradition of the GAM style the nose displays masses of ripe plums, spicy aromatic herbs and lifted freshness.

Critical Acclaim

WW 94
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

Dense garnet hue with a glint of purple. Powerful scents of blackberry, blueberry and rum cake with hints of menthol and mocha. Ultra-plush tannins and juicy flavors of raspberry and Bing cherry. Vibrant acidity and layers of blueberry, leather and sweet tobacco in the lingering close.

ST 91
International Wine Cellar

Inky violet color. Seductively perfumed scents of blackberry, mulberry, candied plum and smoky Indian spices. Ripe, fleshy and gently sweet, offering assertive dark berry and anise flavors and slow-building tannins. Repeats the anise and mulberry notes on the long, sappy, alluringly spicy, peppery finish. This wine is already showing very good complexity.

The Wine Advocate

The higher-end wines begin with the 2007 G.A.M. Shiraz. Purple-colored, it offers an alluring bouquet of spice box, black cherry, blueberry, and a hint of chocolate. This leads to a concentrated, ripe, layered wine with excellent depth and length. Already complex, it will continue to evolve with another several years of cellaring. Drink it from 2011 to 2020.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast

Mitolo’s G.A.M. features great freshness and verve this vintage, showcasing mixed berries—raspberries and blackberries—framed by a generous helping of vanilla. Despite 15% alcohol, it comes across as balanced and only medium in body, finishing crisp and long.

JH 90
Australian Wine Companion

Strong colour; dusty/bitter chocolate aromas lead into a powerful wine which really needs more fruit on the mid-palate.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Ripe in flavor and jazzy in style, with boysenberry and gentle tarry flavors gliding smoothly over polished tannins and lingering on the harmonious finish.
