Mitolo Shiraz Reiver Syrah Wine 2009

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Polished rich and generous with its cherry boysenberry and dusky spice flavors this finishes with a hint of espresso. Has depth and expression. Drink now through 2017. 150 cases imported. -HS Wine Spectator.

Admirable colour; crammed with flavour some bordering on confit; the three 09 red wines are (remarkably) all 14.9%; but get away with it except for this wine which is quite soupy. James Halliday.

Bright violet. Black and blue fruits on the nose with smoky oak cola and mocha nuances adding complexity. Lush and expansive offering sweet blackberry and boysenberry flavors lifted by gentle acidity. Aeration brings up an exotic floral pastille quality that carries through the finish which hangs on with serious tenacity. This is still a baby. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

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 (1

The 2002 Shiraz Reiver is aged in 100% French oak of which 70% is new. Sweet floral black and blue fruit aromas soar from the glass of this black/purple-colored 2002. Extremely full-bodied deep and chewy with tremendous purity as well as texture it is a remarkably well-balanced behemoth from South Australia that should age effortlessly for 15+ years. Barrel samples of three 2002s revealed tremendous potential in what appears to be the finest efforts Mitolo has yet produced. There are 300-400 cases of each and all three are scheduled to be bottled in October. Kudos to young importer (31 years old!) Ben Hammerschlag for unearthing these potential superstars.
