94/100
Wine Companion
The medium-bodied weight denies the alcohol, though not so much ripe confit fruit flavours ranging from cherry to blackberry; good length and bright finish.
, James Halliday Issue: Oct 2005



91/100
The Wine Front
Thick, rich and sexy, if simple. Concentrated, dense black fruits, sweet, coffeed, cedary, integrated oak and tannins that have been judged to perfection. The grapes were very, very ripe, but the winemaking is superb. It rings sweet, warm, long and ripe. This is a successful wine.
TWF, Campbell Mattinson Issue: Oct/Nov 2005



15/20
Jancis Robinson
Named after the (English/Scottish) Border Rievers (from whom I am doubtless descended). Scented, relatively tight and dense. Liquorice – certainly not flabby or sweet. Very muscular for the moment, this still needs quite a lot of time. Glaetzer’s aim is to maximise the difference between the open sweetness of the McLaren Vale wines and the earthier, truffle characters of the Barossa.
JR, Jancis Robinson Issue: Aug 2007



The West Australian
The Reiver shiraz 2004 moves the bar up considerably. It's all Barossa fruit from around Greenock and gets 70 percent new oak, most of which is French. In some ways it's elegant and slightly refined, restrained style is atypical of Barossa. But behind it the lush warm earthiness perhaps gives a clue to its origins. This is a wine with a long-term future.
TWA, Ray Jordan Issue: 6th October 2005

Kay Brothers Amery Hillside Shiraz 2003 750mL

Kay's are specialist traditional red wine makers utilising grapes from their own 22-hectare Amery Vineyard.

 

A rich, round, soft, voluptuous, fruit driven Shiraz with a hint of confectionery sweetness in the background. A very approachable full bodied combination of blueberries, plum, Ribena, mocha chocolate, spice box, vanilla and pepper fill the palate with pleasurable flavours and the balanced soft tannin finish has both length and persistence.

Branson Coach House Greenock Block Shiraz 2002 750mL

Almost black in colour with purple flints - excellent depth. The bouquet is tight, demonstrating pine needles, dusty cherries, liquorice and beef blood. The palate is initially sweet, with a beautiful framework of purple fruits, earth and tar. Excellent acid balance with good fruit concentration building in the mid palate finishing with dry grainy tannins.
