“Greenock Creek has been one of the finest performers in my Australian wine tastings since I first tasted the wines with Dan Philips.Owners Michael and Annabelle Waugh are highly respected growers and winemaker Chris Ringland is one of Barossa’s most talented stars.
Readers looking for full-throttle Shiraz with fabulously ripe,concentrated fruit should check out the powerhouse 1999 Shiraz Seven Acre Aged in new and old American oak for 28 months),which boasts an opaque purple color along with a sweet nose of melted licorice,intermixed with blackberry jam,white flowers,pepper,and a hint of toast.it offers layers of gorgeous fruit,voluptuousness,density,great purity,and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds.This stunning Shiraz (750 cases) typifies what can be produced at the pinnacle of winemaking in the Barossa Valley”.
