Tasting Notes

Deep garnet-black colored, Greenock Creek's 2004 Roennfeldt Road Shiraz reveals a profoundly complex nose of mulberries, warmed plums, kirsch, crème de cassis, melted chocolate, spice cake, liquored sultanas and eucalypt. The very full bodied palate is concentrated, rich and opulent, flavored with a mix of dried fruits and Indian spices coming through in layers. The acid is crisp and seamless, not overdone, while the tannins are firm, ripe and finely grained. It finishes long, spicy and exquisitely balanced. To preserve the purity / delineation of aromas and flavors, I'd recommend not drinking this wine too warm, ideally enjoying it at a temperature just above cellar temps: around 15-17 degrees C. Drink it now to 2025+. Lisa Perrotti-Brown
