Greenock Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz 2019

$30.00

Deep crimson. Attractive dark plum, blackberry fruits with espresso/ dukkha notes. Fresh supple palate with ample dark berry, apricotty, liquorice flavours, fine loose knit chalky tannins and integrated fresh acidity. Some underlying savoury notes. Drink now – 2026. 93 Points – Andrew Caillard MW, The Vintage Journal

The initially reserved nose suddenly turns charismatic with a few minutes or air, with black pepper, fresh mint and crushed blackberry booming out of the glass. On the nose, a savoury Worcestershire sauce note comes to the fore followed by black plum skin and black olive. Utterly fascinating, this is still incredibly young and could use several years to settle down. Thanks to its firm, lightly course tannins and buoyant acidity coupled with a puff pastry like layering of complex flavours, there is certainly no rush to open the bottle. Drink 2024 – 2031. 92 Points – Wine Enthusiast (USA)

Deep opaque ruby and a well pitched style for fans of chunky Barossa Shiraz with an impressive array of plum compote, chocolate, baked earth and dried spice fruits, lifted by a strong dose of sweet coconut American oak. It’s then dry and bold, packed with dense, dark fruits. Alcohol is on the high side but it absolutely fits the style. The palate is seductive and supple with layers of sweet ripe fruits well supported by supple to tannins through a finish of outstanding length. A great introduction to the Greenock Creek style. 92 Points – Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot
