Description

Created in 1978, Greenock Creek is a little “boutique” Barossa winery with a output of just 2500 cases every year, owned by Michael and Annabel Waugh. These wines, molded from old, low-yielding vineyards, have amassed very much a reputation. Greenock Creek is genuinely an estate winery. Their scope of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache is produced using grapes become totally on the property and handled on location at Roennfeldt Road. The wines are discharged in September every year and sell out inside a few months through cellar door and mail request. This bottle was bought on release and only 240 cases of this wine were produced.

 

“A perfect wine, the magnificent 2001 Shiraz Creek Block (240 cases) exhibits notes of burning embers, melted road tar, truffles, blackberries, and crème de cassis. With huge glycerin and a full-bodied, sensational finish, it represents the essence of wine”.

“I took this to a friends for a lamb and Syrah dinner on 4/15/17. It had a huge, rich, deep and complex bouquet of plum, prune, blueberry, blackberry, licorice, mint, pepper herb, spice, mocha and creosote aromas. The palate was dense, concentrated, powerful and superbly integrated with flavors of plum, prune, blueberry, blackberry, mocha, cocoa, licorice, pepper, herb and spice”.
