It is a powerful wine with intense flavours of dark rose, licorice, cocoa and sweet tobacco supported by fine ripe tannins. A wine with a strong backbone and a long finish that will cellar for a long time. Greenock Shiraz 2010 is dark purple-black in colour. The bouquet is extremely vibrant with aromas of dark roses, Christmas cake, black cherry, roast almond, cocoa, sweet tobacco and a touch of savoury spice. The palate is full-bodied and very generous. Vibrant dark fruits and subtle barrel nuances fill the palate. Tannins are fine, stylish and well integrated adding structure. The wine is very harmonious with bountiful flavour combined with refinement and class. The wine finishes with beautiful pure fruit intensity that lingers for a long time. Greenock is a complex and opulent Barossa Shiraz that will reward careful cellaring.
Greenock Shiraz 2011 is deep red-black in colour. The inviting bouquet exudes characters of red rose perfume, cherry, cinnamon spice, fruit cake, blackberry and olive.The full bodied palate delivers both red and black fruits complimented with some rustic earthiness and pepper spice as well as subtle background oak. Tannins are mineraly but beautifully integrated adding depth and a firm structure. Well balanced, this harmonious wine finishes with lingering fruit purity. Greenock is a complex Barossa Shiraz that will reward careful cellaring.
From the first look at the colour, dark black red, through the perfumed nose, then the power packed palate, this is clearly going to be a class wine! The nose is tight and brooding, opening slowly as the wine breathes. That dark colour follows through to the nose of the wine, its all initially dark fruits, black berries, plums, liquorice, then opening up to add touches of vanilla, a sliver of chocolate, spices and a hint of cream. The palate too is super intense, densely packed fruits, layers of black berry, plum, super ripe raspberries and liquorice, with a really creamy mouthfeel. The finish is very long, with loads of soft and fine tannins. This is a wine with power, yet structure, intense and tight, with a huge future in front of it. Indeed, it was at its best, and getting better, three hours later. Class all the way! Gavin Trott
