Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Made by winemakers Michael Waugh and Chris Ringland at the Rockford winery in Barossa, the 1996 Cabernet Sauvignon Roennfeldt Road (120 cases from 50-year old vines) was aged for three years in new French oak. Its 13.4% alcohol is modest by Barossa standards. An opaque purple color is followed by gorgeous aromas of blueberry and blackberry liqueur intermixed with flower, camphor, and vanilla scents. Marvelously rich and full-bodied, with a viscous texture, superb purity, and a multilayered, skyscraper personality, this is profound stuff!

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.

Wine Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon

Cabernet Sauvignon is perhaps the world's best known red variety, with its full-bodied, intense profile. An offspring of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc, it is the primary grape of Bordeaux's Left Bank (Medoc and Graves regions) and the Napa Valley, but can be found growing all over the world. Typical descriptors for Cabernet Sauvignon are cassis, cedar, mint, black pepper, eucalyptus, and pencil lead.
