The vineyards are in the Willunga district in the southern end of McLaren Vale. The heavy grey loam soil over sandstone, intermixed with black Biscay clay, combined with a maritime climate, contribute to an even ripening period and the development of rich fruit flavours and ripe tannins.
Mitolo Sangiovese Rose is distinctive, elegant and true to its variety , showing vibrant Sangiovese character, clean acidity and soft texture which leads into a long, dry and balanced finish. Sangiovese is wonderful with food and compliments an array of dishes.
Fruit is hand picked and pressed immediately off skins at the winery. This gives the beautiful pale salmon pink colour. A long, slow, cool ferment retains the fresh strawberry and cream aromatics. The wine is then cold stabilised and filtered before early bottling to capture the fresh flavours.
