2007 Mitolo Shiraz Reiver Syrah
about this wine:
The name 'Reiver' is taken from 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, and not the crown, whether English or Scottish.
According to Chuck Hayward, JJB Australian Wine Specialist:
Although based in McLaren Vale, the "Reiver" shiraz comes from a 60 year old vineyard in the Greenock subregion of the Barossa. This area is quickly becoming "Ground Zero" for growing top-notch shiraz. Some of the most highly-rated shiraz (think 98+ pointers like Greenock Creek "Roennfeldt Road," Two Hands "Coach Block" and the region's fruit being a major component for Penfolds Grange) comes from this little area in the northwest portion of the Barossa. The elevation (about 1500 feet) and rocky soils help to add structure and minerality to the rich, lush flavors.
