Mitolo Harena Blewitt Springs Grenache 2022


Mitolo likes to surprise, stretch the envelope, move beyond general expectations. Hence, we experience a different view of Grenache here, one that is firm, fine featured, red fruited and without little or any of the usual sweet confection notes. The sandy soils of Blewitt Springs, a sub-region of McLaren Vale, bring out this “other” side beautifully. Violets and earthy aromas mingle with black pepper, plum and black cherry. The wine’s lifted florals – juniper, rosemary, anise, black pepper – are a real feature, an exotic note, infiltrating every part of the wine. Falls effortlessly across the tongue with tannins deliciously fresh and supple. A ripper of a wine.
