Varietal Shiraz
Volume 750ml

This wine is sourced from a single vineyard, located on the Western edge of the Greenock Creek in the Northern Barossa Valley. The vineyard consists of shallow, sandy loam soil over deep red clay and limestone, providing ideal growing conditions for Shiraz. The wine was matured in 25% new and 75% older French and American oak for a period of 18 months.

Outstanding colour – opaque black crimson with deep crimson hue. Aromas of blackberry, liquorice and confectionary with some vanilla and mocha background notes. Full bodied palate with mouthfilling flavours of dark chocolate, liquorice allsorts, confectionary, vanilla and blackpepper. Fine grained supple tannins. Excellent length with long aftertaste of liquorice allsorts, blackpepper and confectionary.

Wine Advocate – 92 Points
“The 2006 Greenock Shiraz comes from one of the estate’s young vineyards but you would never know this on taste. It spent 18 months in hogsheads, 20% new American, 5% new French, and the balance seasoned French and American. It is a glass-coating purple color with an expressive bouquet of smoke, mineral, bacon, and blueberry. Layered, bordering on opulent, the wine has superior depth of flavor, plenty of savory spice notes, and a lengthy finish. There is enough ripe tannin to support 3-4 years of additional cellaring. It should be at its best from 2011 to 2020.”
