Laughing Jack Greenock Shiraz 2019


Terrific rendition of Greenock Creek’s rich and opulent flavours. Full bodied, with black fruits, some sweet raspberry, sumac, cinnamon and wood spice. Round in shape, it’s not heavy and is surprisingly light on it’s feet. Despite all the apparent presence and flavour, there’s a youthful brightness, conveyed by the fine, soft tannins. Lovely focus and full of character. I like to thing of this as Barossa’s answer to Claret’s effortless drinking. Waters Wine Co

Sourced from a single block of shiraz on the Kalleske estate in the western Barossa known as East Block, aged for 20 months in 40% new French oak, 40% seasoned French oak, 10% new American oak and 10% seasoned American oak hogsheads. A great example of classic Western Ridge latent power here. Dense blackberry, black cherry and plum characters build in intensity, gather both spice and pace before compressing and accelerating to the exit, framed by superfine tannin before coast slowly into the distance. Lovely stuff.” 95 Points – Tyson Stelzer, Halliday Wine Companion 2022
