The 100 point 1996 Shiraz Roennfeldt Road is outstanding. Stated in its entirety, the name ‘Greenock Creek Vineyard & Cellars’ neatly captures our winemaking masterplan which steadfastly adheres to the idea of ‘vineyard first, winery second’. Through each wine we aim to capture and promote the influence of subtle nuances inherent in the landscape of our vineyards at Seppeltsfield, Marananga and Moppa, located along the Barossa Valley’s western edge. The undulating profile of these sites, strewn with ancient stone, serves as a perfect palate of richly diverse micro terroirs, nourishing our desire to showcase multiple expressions of our distinctive wine style. Dry growing conditions yield small berried fruit of deep colour, abundant flavour, great structure and length, the hallmark characteristics of every Greenock Creek wine.

About the wine

Tasting notes

This amazing achievement boasts an inky/black/purple color as well as a striking perfume of smoke, charcoal, blackberry liqueur, and a hint of toast. In the mouth, it is fabulously concentrated and tremendously pure, with layer upon layer of flavors that unfold incrementally. Mouth-staining, but not over the top, it would be hard to find a more concentrated wine anywhere in the world. Although the tannin is high, it is obscured by the wealth of fruit and glycerin. A tour de force in winemaking, it is probably worth the high cost of admission

The Grape

Shiraz or Syrah

Shiraz, or Syrah, is one of the most loved, rich and powerful red wine varieties made famous for its mineral and structured expressions from the Rhône in France and the rich and decadent fruity expressions from the Barossa Valley in Australia. Full bodied, rich in antioxidants and generously fruity, Shiraz sits proudly on the table for those that like their wine big and bold. Think violets, blackberries, plum, chocolate, pepper, black olive, liquorice, rosemary, tobacco and spice...i'm thirsty already!
