The G.A.M Shiraz is regularly one of my favourites from the Mitolo range thanks to its core of typically powerful McLaren Vale fruits underlaid by more brooding, earthy complexity. It’s a wine that instantly sucks you in from the first glance and the 2018 vintage does not disappoint.

It opens with an impressive array of dark berry fruits – blackcurrant, mulberry and blackberry. They are big but balanced and supported with vanillin oak. It then slowly takes you on a journey through its savoury side – earth with dried sage and thyme giving an almost Mediterranean feel. The palate then is all about balance – that ripe fruit instantly generous and giving making it a very attractive drink right now with al-dente tannins providing some ageworthy structure to a long finish. But when it is so good right now, why wait?
