2003 Mitolo Reiver Shiraz

Barossa Valley, South Australia, AUSTRALIA
$99.99 Bottle
  • Closure: Cork

A wonderful Barossa Shiraz which delivers plenty of flavour without being bulky. Very deep black purple colour with purple hue. The nose delivers a wonderful sniff with aroma of violets, confectionary, spice and blackcurrant. The palate flavour profile is filled with ‘joosy’ Shiraz flavours of spice, blackpepper, confectionary, plum and liquorice allsorts. Excellent length, fine grained dry tannins, but balanced, followed by nuances of vanilla. Long aftertaste of liquorice allsorts, violet infusions, blackpepper and plum.
Cellar 3-4 years (2007-2008)
Alc/Vol: 14.5%

Other reviews... The 2003 Shiraz Reiver is a 100% Shiraz from the Greenock region of Barossa cropped at 1.2 tons of fruit per acre, and aged 18 months in primarily new French barrels and small foudres. Winemaker Ben Glaetzer has fashioned an opaque purple-colored offering displaying a gorgeous bouquet of crushed rocks, violets, and blueberries that is reminiscent of the prodigious 1990 St.-Emilion, Beausejour-Duffau. It possesses a terrific texture, impressive purity, a long finish, and atypically low alcohol (14%) for such ripeness and intensity.
