Wine Advocate | Rating: 95The 2002 Grenache Cornerstone (190 cases) exhibits a fabulous perfume of kirsch liqueur and raspberries, a corpulent, fleshy attack and mid-palate, surprising structure and definition, and that fabulous richness and ripeness that only come from old vines (64 years) and low yields (.75-1 ton of fruit per acre).Author: Robert Parker
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.
