Deep red turning almost opaque at the center. Intense scents of York Peppermint Patties, sage, chalk, and dark fruits. Acidity is way too prominent. Tannins are significant and linger. Decent length with sweet plum on the finish. From 65 year old vines, this wine was raised in French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered. A full, deep rather throaty baritone of a wine. Sadly the 2004 Cornerstone turns in a disappointing performance compared to prior efforts from this winery. Frankly I was shocked at how poorly it performed. The wine was aged in French oak for 16 months and then put into glass unfiltered.

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.
