Mitolo 7th Son 2017 (92 WA)

“Despite the cooler vintage (harvest ended three to four weeks later than in 2016), the 2017 Small Batch Series 7th Son boasts wonderfully supple tannins. A blend of 60% Grenache, 35% Shiraz and 5% Sagrantino, it kicks off with slightly resiny herbal and floral notes, then adds bright cherries with darker undertones. It’s round in the mouth, ample in feel and lingers on the finish.”

    The wine’s name comes from Seventh Son of the Seventh Son, a folklore concept of birth right gifts of second sight, healing and luck. The Seventh Son is a testament to the quality of these two varieties, Grenache and Shiraz, in McLaren Vale and how well they can compliment each other. When blended together though these opposites provide a great foil for each other, creating a complex and intriguing wine.
