Sweet floral black and blue fruit aromas soar from the glass of this black/purple-colored 2002. Extremely full-bodied deep and chewy with tremendous purity as well as texture it is a remarkably well-balanced behemoth from South Australia that should age effortlessly for 15+ years. Barrel samples of three 2002s revealed tremendous potential in what appears to be the finest efforts Mitolo has yet produced. There are 300-400 cases of each and all three are scheduled to be bottled in October. Kudos to young importer (31 years old!) Ben Hammerschlag for unearthing these potential superstars.
