Winemaker's Notes

The Greenock Shiraz 2005 is deep red-black in color with a purple rim. The nose is extremely inviting with concentrated aromas of dark plum, black licorice, cocoa, coffee, blackberry and clove spice. The palate is rich and full bodied with layers of flavor supported by a harmonious balance. Intense pure fruit, subtle barrel maturation characters and fine integrated tannins combine for a complete and stylish wine. It's a muscular wine that fills the entire mouth with its generosity. A very persistent finish completes this powerful but sophisticated wine that will cellar well for many years.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2005 Shiraz “Greenock” is opaque purple-colored with an impressive perfume of toast, smoke, mineral, blueberry, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, powerful, tightly wound Shiraz with tons of spicy blue and black fruit flavors, ample ripe tannins, and a long finish. This big, muscular Shiraz requires 5-7 years of additional cellaring and should drink well through 2030."
