A muscular wine, of great depth and power; the secret here is the delicacy of the oak handling for the fruit; the dark fruits are matched by red ones, and the core is intense and chewy, very long and surprisingly supple.
The 2006 Shiraz 'Reiver' is sourced from a single vineyard in the Greenock region of the Barossa Valley. The average age of the vines is 60 years. Opaque purple in color, it has a enthralling perfume of saddle leather, truffle, violets, pepper, blueberry, toast, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied wine which manages to retain elegance. Opulent, ripe, and layered with spicy blue and black fruits, the wine has enough underlying structure for extended cellaring. Nicely integrated and long in the finish, it can be enjoyed over the next 12-15 years. Mitolo, which began operations in 1999, is a partnership of the Mitolo family and winemaker Ben Glaetzer. (JM)
Boasts a dense, inky color, but at this tender age the flavors lack the weight and opulence of the 2005 version. Coffee and cedar notes frame tart blackberries, finishing long and elegantly. It’s juicy and fresh, with plenty of appeal now, yet should age well for up to 10 years. (JC)
The distinctive flavor profile hits some mint, cedar and red berry notes, touching on guava as the finish lingers. (HS)
