2019 Greenock Creek Barossa Valley Shiraz 6PK

In 2019, we set out on a journey across the Barossa vineyard landscape. Seeking that special combination of micro-climate, soil type and geological structure, elevation and aspect that produces longed lived wines of deep colour, abundant flavour and great structure. Shiraz fruit was purchased from several vineyards marked as having the pre-requisite conditions, and a series of trial wines made enabling our winemakers to assess their suitability for Greenock Creek. A selection of the trial wines from vineyards located in the sub regions of Moppa, Tanunda, Lyndoch and Rosedale were blended to produce a Barossa Valley Shiraz. The wine shows deep red and purple colours in the glass and fragrant notes of dark berries and warm spices on the nose. The palate is an abundance of rich flavour, framed by silken tannin and a long, lingering finish. Like all Greenock Creek wines, it is immensely enjoyable when young, but will reward cellaring, peaking between 2025 and 2028. Winemaker notes "In the glass you'll see plenty of cherry and bright red hues. Wild forest berries intermingle with star anise and ground coffee aromas, with hints of savoury kitchen spices and lifted notes of lavender blossom. Ripe plums and cranberries drive though the pallet and linger long onto the finish. Sweet vanilla merges with milk chocolate nuances in the mid palate, balanced by slate and mineral edges that provide vibrancy and a cleansing acid line. All framed by silken, velvety tannin that provides the rounded structure of this extremely flavoursome wine." Alex Peel & Peter Atyeo
