Expert Reviews

Coming from a 60-year-old vineyard in Greenock, the 2009 Reiver Shiraz was matured for 14 months in oak hogsheads, 70% new and 90% French. It reveals a deep garnet-purple color and an intensely perfumed nose of black cherries, blackberries, mulberries, potpourri and anise over baking spices and violets. Full bodied and voluptuous in the mouth, it is elegantly structured with a medium level of velvety tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long with plenty of spice layers. Approachable now, it should develop further and cellar to 2019+. Rating 93 - Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW, eRobertParker.com (FEB/2012)

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep garnet red with purple tinges

Aroma

Brooding nose full of dark mulberry and plummy fruit with earthy, leathery almost spicy tones and a healthy lick of vanilla oak.

Palate

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.

Cellaring

10 years.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

For such a young winery, Mitolo’s history is rich. It’s one studded with success, wide acclaim, and – most importantly – truly memorable wines. But that’s only to be expected from a winery which, since the very first day, has been motivated by three potent words:

Purity. Elegance. Power.

Those were the guiding principles Frank Mitolo wrote down when he created the winery in 1999. With his Italian heritage and a family history of working the land, Frank was only interested in pursuing excellence. And the results were there immediately in the release of the first Mitolo wine - the 2000 G.A.M. - named after Frank’s children Gemma, Alexander and Marco.

Attracted by this commitment to only create wines of outstanding quality, acclaimed winemaker Ben Glaetzer joined Mitolo as a partner in 2001. With grapes sourced from two of Australia’s premier wine regions, Mclaren Vale and the Barossa Valley, Frank and Ben now work tirelessly to surpass their already impressive achievements. Mitolo Wines, praised by some of the world’s toughest critics, are now enjoyed in more than 20 countries around the world.

And that is just the start.
