Greenock Creek Shiraz Barossa Valley Roennfeldt Road 1998

Winemaker's Notes:

The syrup of Shiraz, with compelling blackberry liqueur intermixed with minerals, smoke, and truffles. Huge in the mouth but not overbearing, this wine has a finish that goes on for nearly a minute. With great purity, massive extraction, and a blockbuster, multidimensional personality...one of the greatest Shiraz we have ever tasted. Very limited with less than 400 cases produced in any year.

my restaurant has been selling 3 of this estate's wines in the 5 year's i've worked there. the 1998 '7 acre shiraz' was always one of the big hits of our list and i got my hands (or tongue) on one of the last bottles before the vintage changed. i was bowled over by the sheer purity of fruit and the length of the flavour on the palate, and most particularity by the elegance of the wine - whilst unmistakably 'new world' its fruit was never cloying and its oak was perfectly integrated. the 'alices shiraz' and estate 'cab sav' are from 'lesser' parcels but exhibit the same clarity and pungency as their super-cuvee cousin, from tasting these over the '98-'00 vintages i feel safe recommending the estate as a whole to readers. enjoy!

The 1998 Shiraz Roennfeldt Road (235 cases) is made from yields of .75-1 ton of fruit per acre. The wine possesses the concentration of the greatest classics ever produced in such Bordeaux vintages as 1945, 1947, 1959, 1961, and 1982. This is a full-... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Syrah wine from South Australia in Australia. 1998 Greenock Creek Shiraz Roennfeldt Road 750ml
