Winemaker's Notes

Deep purple colour. This wine possesses a complex bouquet of red berries, cedar, mint, tobacco, espresso and chocolate. This wine displays a soft coating texture; the rich fruit drives straight across the palate displaying a medium to full bodied intensity. Flavours of cloves, chocolate and lifted purple fruits mingle with the unobtrusive oak.

Barossa Valley South Australia. The vineyard is located to the south of the township of Greenock in the western Barossa Valley. The Branson vineyard was planted in 1990 to Shiraz and Cabernet. Grown on the fabled deep red clay soil that dominates the area, a key element in the unique terroir of this small pocket of the Barossa Valley.

"The 2004 Shiraz Greenock Creek Block (aged in American oak) is a dense, full-bodied, intense, old style Australian red with loads of richness as well as a rustic quality. Drink it over the next 10-12 years."
-Robert Parker, Wine Advocate
