This is the second release of Greenock one. Shiraz is the number one variety in the Barossa. No one can argue the importance of this variety and the place it has reached in many hearts of fine wine connoisseurs around the world. Whilst the wine is proudly from the Barossa Valley, we also want to take our friends on a journey to show that the Barossa has as much sub regional diversity as any of the great wine regions of the world. Our vineyard, located in Greenock in the west of the Barossa Valley was added to the Elderton family in 2010 and is a great addition to the portfolio. The 60 acre vineyard has plantings back to 1915 and a terroir that has been in demand by many of the Barossa’s elite winemakers. This wine is from vines ranging 20 – 35 years of age. Yields are extraordinarily low due to the toughness and free draining nature of the soils, the lack of rain and also the fact that the last owners almost succeeded in running the vineyard into the ground. In many blocks we still struggle to get more than one tonne an acre.
