'Terroirs of The Barossa' Greenock-Shiraz 2010
Sold Out
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.

Winemaking

The grapes were destalked (separating berries from the bunch) and placed uncrushed into small stainless steel open fermenters. A cultured yeast was used to start the fermentation and the tanks were hand plunged spending 7 days on skins at 28° C. Further maturation in a mixture of French and American Oak for 18 months has resulted in a wine of great structure and finesse.

Deep, dense crimson-purple; made in the same way as all three wines in the Terroirs of the Barossa series, given 18 months in a mix of new and used American and French oak. The higher alcohol does introduce another level of flavours and focus, and, as long as the wine has been given a reasonable period to mature and is drunk with food, should suit those who like long-lived, full-bodied shiraz. Drink By: 2035 Date Tasted: 17 Mar 2012

Deep garnet purple in color, the 2010 Terroirs of the Barossa Greenock Shiraz offers blueberry compote, creme de cassis and dark chocolate notes intermingled with hints of espresso, vanilla and anise. Full, rich and forward with mouth-filling, warm berry and spice flavors, it has medium-firm, rounded tannins, enlivening acidity and a long finish. Drink it now to 2022+.
