The 1999 Cabernet Sauvignon Roennfeldt Road is a 100% Cabernet from 65-year-old vines cropped at .75 tons of fruit per acre that spent 36 months in 100% new oak. The most extraordinary Cabernet Sauvignon produced in Australia, it possesses superb creme de cassis and black fruit characteristics interwoven with notions of graphite, minerals, spice box, cedar, and mint.

About This Producer


Established in 1978, Greenock Creek is a tiny "boutique" Barossa winery with a production level of only 2,500 cases per year, owned by Michael and Annabel Waugh. Greenock Creek produces Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet with grapes from two prime growing regions in the heart of the Barossa Valley: Seppeltsfield and Marananga. Michael Waugh makes 100% Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet; each wine is created with fruit from a particular vineyard block. Yields are low, ridiculously so in the case of the Roennfeldt Road Shiraz and Cabernet blocks, where half a ton an acre is typical from the 60-year-old vines.
