Deep magenta; deep fruited with great concentration and red and black fruits in abundance; hints of spice and a core of bright fruits lead to a long, full and harmonious finish. Rating 94 - Drink by 2018 James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (JAN/2008)
Winery Tasting Notes
The Greenock Shiraz 2006 is black in colour with a dark red rim.
The bouquet is extremely vibrant with aromas of dark roses, plum, Christmas cake, cocoa and sweet tobacco.
The palate is full-bodied and fills the entire mouth with flavour. Tannins are ripe and soft, with stylish definition. Flavours of red and black fruits are supported by well integrated subtle oak characters. The wine finishes with beautiful pure fruit intensity that lingers for a long time. This is a classy, refined wine with a harmonious balance that will reward time in the cellar.
