The Barossa Valley is the only Australian wine region that can produce different Shiraz styles from the numerous sub-regions each with distinctive characteristics. The 'Terroirs of the Barrosa' are an embodiment of the environment, the valley, the soil and the climate. The richest and ripest of the terroirs, this wine reflects the old vines and fertile red soils of vineyards in Greenock.
- SA - Barossa
- South Australia
The grapes come from the 40-year-old Mattschoss Vineyard, destemmed but not crushed, then spending 7 days in open fermenters; 20 months in French and American oak; 500 dozen made. While Greenock has a reputation for rich wines, this has considerable fragrance and elegance, its flavours of juicy red fruits, the tannins very fine, the oak balanced.

Winery Tasting Notes
The dark, brooding regional characters of plum, red cherry and liquorice are all to the fore of this wine.
The palate is focused and linear, with dark bitter chocolate notes and an elegant long persistent finish.
We recommend cellaring for 10 years.
