Mino & Co Pty Ltd, was established in 1997 and has been producing wines of various styles, suited to the regions growing conditions but not limited to, for almost two decades. The winery is located in a small village called Hanwood, just outside Griffith in New South Wales with the area falling into the ‘Riverina’ region of NSW. In more recent times growers, and more specifically The winery, have begun planting various Italian varietals due to demand in the Australian wine market and the areas suitable growing conditions. The winery also sources certain parcels of fruit from specific growers in premium regions, mainly South Australia. Regions such as Adelaide Hills, Claire Valley, Barossa Valley and others all cultivate high-quality different styles of fruit which are used across the SignorVino range of wines. The winery produces Italian varietals on a boutique scale, predominantly for the domestic market in Australia and has found great success in doing so. The selection of Italian varietals is based wholly on the palate characteristics. The Guglielmino family are passionate about displaying their Italian heritage in their selection of wine styles and believe there is a balance between adopting innovative techniques amongst the traditional methods of wine making which have been passed down through the generations.
Full dark red to black in colour. The bouquet shows red/black cherry/plum fruits, red liquorice, dried herb and subtle baking spices. A richly fruited, roundly approachable style of Shiraz with good balancing freshness, the ripe fruit and spicy oak tastes carry throughout the palate for a good length on the finish. The old vine Shiraz stood out as the better parcel with intense wild blackberry fruit flavours, colour and rich velvet tannins.
