Wine Advocate | Rating: 99The 2001 Shiraz “Roennfeldt Road,” from an outstanding vintage, is the finest since the near-perfect 1998. Opaque purple/black, it offers a mind-boggling bouquet of pencil lead, earth, white truffle, pepper, violets, licorice, blackberry, and blueberry compote. Dense, opulent, and full-bodied, there are mouth-filling, spicy, blue and black fruit flavors with notes of chocolate in the background. This sensational effort demands 8-10 years of additional bottle age and should drink well through 2030.Drink Dates: 2015 - 2030Author: Jay MillerIssue: 173
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.
