94 POINTS The 2020 Small Batch Series Angela Shiraz is made in an aromatic style: it is perfumed and elegant. The fruit is sourced from the southern part of the Vale. In the mouth, the wine sings with blue fruits and vibrancy. It has notes of deli meat, aniseed, blackberry and plush fruit—powerful and neat. This is quite lovely, with coulis and pink peppercorn— moreish. Erin Larkin, Wine Advocate, October 2022
93 POINTS Modern shiraz from a warm place, albeit riding a sleigh of tension. A clench of reduction confers floral and iodine scents, evincing an air of somewhere considerably cooler. Boysenberry sweetness across the mid-palate suggests otherwise. Loads of salami smokiness, liquorice, lavender, clove and thyme, too. A little drying at the finale, but pretty convincing. Ned Goodwin, Wine Companion, February 2023

91 Points Opaque in colour. The 2020 Angela is a big, generous, crowd pleasing Shiraz from Mitolo. The nose offers chocolate, blackberry and liquorice aromas with a nice touch of savoury spice and toasty oak. Dry and full-flavoured, this has been well constructed with oak tannins providing length and backbone before fading away a little on the finish. Angus Hughson, Vinous, February 2023
91 POINTS Deep crimson. Intense blackberry, cassis, mulberry aromas with dark chocolate liquorice, hint flinty notes. Fresh dark berry fruits some graphite notes, underlying praline/espresso complexity and fine chewy firm tannins with some flinty notes at the finish. Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal, December 2022
91 Points Opaque in colour and another big, generous crowd pleasing style from Mitolo with lashings of chocolate, blackberry and liquorice with a nice touch of savoury spice and toasty oak. Dry, and full-flavoured, this has been well constructed with oak tannins providing length and backbone before just fading away a little on the finish. Angus Hughson, Winepilot, August 2022
90 Points Good depth of colour. This smells ripe and clean, fairly straightforward with berry, spice and cedar aromas. It's medium bodied, and the flavours are well poised between ripeness and a fresh tang. Tannins are moderate and in good balance. Ralph Kyte-Powell, The Real Review, January 2023
