Greenock Shiraz is a single vineyard wine produced from low yielding Shiraz vines on the Kalleske estate at Greenock, in the North-Western Barossa Valley. Cuttings for these vines originate from a vineyard planted on the property in the late 1800's.
Today, sixth and seventh generation family members meticulously tend the vines. Traditional wine-making and maturation in American and French oak hogsheads has ensured a complex, full-bodied Shiraz which will reward long term cellaring. Greenock Shiraz is a true family estate wine – grown, vintaged and matured on the Kalleske estate.
"Powerful and throaty, churning with tannin, mocha and new leather, dried herb and floral perfume, black fruit. Oak is nutty nougat and fragrant, not overdone, but noted, finishes saline and long with sooty tannin and glimmers of red fruit. A lotta Barossa.”
