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.

It possesses a terrific texture impressive purity a long finish and atypically low alcohol (14%) for such ripeness and intensity.
