Deep garnet red with purple tinges.Brooding nose full of dark mulberry and plummy fruit with earthy, leathery almost spicy tones and a healthy lick of vanilla oak.Rich, full flavoured and velvety, Mitolo Reiver is quintessential Barossa Shiraz. It truly sings of its origins: Earthy, spicy notes complement the plum and raspberry fruits- all framed perfectly by restrained tannins. This leads to a palate that is all encompassing yet cleverly balanced.
Aromas of black cherries, blackberries, mulberries and anise with hints baking spices and violets. Full-bodied and voluptuous, it is well structured with medium velvety tannins, juicy acidity and layers of spice on its lengthy finish.
Named 'Reiver' for the border raiders of the Anglo-Scot borders. Throughout the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries the border country was ravaged by lawless Reiver families in a vicious cycle of raid, reprisal and blood feud. Their allegiance was first to the family, the surname, not the crown, whether English or Scottish.
