Greenock Shiraz 2014 is opaque purple-black in color. Very aromatic and inviting, the bouquet displays a complexity of characters including ripe black plum, licorice, toast, baked herbs cocoa and cassis. The rich, full-bodied palate shows immense concentration with plenty of energy. Dark fruits dominate with toasty oak in support. The natural tannins are lightly grippy but very fine adding structure to support the powerful fruit. With layers of complexity this is a very pure but sophisticated wine of great equilibrium that is completed by a solid lingering finish. Greenock is a complex Barossa Shiraz that has a long cellaring future.
