The Nessus Shiraz is a fragrant, bright, and full flavoured wine which displays all of the trademarks of a McLaren Vale Shiraz. It is also a wine that captures the soft, silky and seductive tannins which are a distinctive feature of Mitolo Shiraz wines.

The Nessus Shiraz is sourced from our vineyards at the southern end of McLaren Vale, close to the seaside town of Port Willunga. The rich, heavy clay soils and warm summer days produce a deeply coloured, full flavoured wine with soft, silky tannins. Shiraz fruit for the Nessus is crushed immediately after delivery to the winery, and the skin and juice mix is then allowed to warm naturally over the coming days. Fermentation is kept cool in order to retain the primary fruit characters in the wine.

Matured in older oak barrels, the Nessus Shiraz has an unobscured purity, a boisterous wild side, that competes with the restraining natural acidity; juxtaposed opposites delicately balanced just like the emotions of its namesake Nessus the centaur.

NOSE
Expressive with scents of blackberries, mulberries and graphite, with a whiff of earthy undertones.
