Winemaker Notes

This is more immediately harmonious and polished than most recent Creeks. It seems to be more classically predictable Barossa Shiraz of the highest order than one of your typically dirty, swampy, sweaty bayou-bluesy brutes. Its smooth, glossy aroma lets little glints of the usual aniseed and chocolate components show with time, and theres that delightful lolly shop whoof of dusting sugar, but thats it for the first half hour. The palates slender, with the lithe, sinuous acidity of a pole-vaulter, but hidden in a delicious wrapping of the cleanest, most intense and promising Shiraz possible.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The nearly perfect 2002 Shiraz Creek Block (from 54-year-old vines) possesses an inky/purple hue as well as a spectacularly intense bouquet of creme de cassis, blackberries, blueberries, charcoal, crushed rocks, and acacia flowers. Enormously endowed, concentrated, rich, pure, and layered, it is about as prodigious as South Australian Shiraz can be. The cool 2002 vintage has provided good delineation, crisp acidity, and sweet tannin. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2025+.

Greenock Creek, Barossa Valley, Barossa, Australia
Image of winery
Greenock Creek Wines is situated at Seppeltsfield in the rolling hills between the hamlets of Greenock and Marananga, on the western edge of the Barossa Valley. The winery's first release was in 1988, when it sold a 1986 Shiraz and a 1988 Chardonnay from its tiny cellar door situated beneath the Waugh's 150 year old stone cottage. Since then the winery has planted, grafted or acquired more vines, and now specialises in premium red wine production. Only grapes grown on the property are used, making it truly an estate winery. The range of wines includes five Shiraz, two Cabernet Sauvignons and a Grenache, all processed at the winery on the Waugh’s Roennfeldt Road property. The wines are released each year in early September and are sold through cellar door, mail order, a selected number of retail outlets in Australia and a small quantity via export. If there is a "Cult" Australian winery, this is it!
