Terroirs of the Barossa Greenock Shiraz 2017
Tasting Notes

The dark, brooding regional characters of plum, red cherry and liquorice are all to the fore of this wine.

The palate is focused and linear, with dark bitter chocolate notes and an elegant long persistent finish. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.

Winemaking

The most westerly zone of the Barossa, known as the Western Slopes, gives rise to some of the richest expressions of Shiraz from the Barossa.

 Soil: Heavy brown earth, red clay and crackled ironstone

 Altitude: 290m

To ensure the unique character of this sub region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine.

Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

Glass-staining depth of colour. Lovely, ripe, fruitcakey nose of dark fruits, spice and mocha. Those aromatic threads flow through the mouth, and despite its obvious power and concentration, it shows refinement. Chocolatey, rich and lush, it's a true tour de force. 23 MAY 2019 Ralph Kyte Powell Recommended Drinking: 20192044

Wonderfully fruited and generously expressed, the bouquet shows dark fruit intensity with seductive notes of olive, warm spice, game and roasted nuts. The palate delivers opulence as well as supple mouthfeel, beautifully supported by fine-grained tannins. Multi-layered and immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2030.
