Winemaker's Notes:

The 40-hectare Greenstone Vineyard, 21 hectares of which are planted, is situated north of the town of Heathcote, a 90 minute drive north of Melbourne, Victoria. The name ‘Greenstone’ comes from the rocks coloured green by the oxidised iron in the soils. The owners include winemaking consultant, Alberto Antonini and Mark Walpole, chief viticulturist for Brown Brothers. The 2006 Shiraz combines the elegance of mid-Victorian Shiraz with the depth and weight that characterise wines from Heathcote. It spent longer in oak than the previous vintage to lift the perfumes, resulting in a lovely ripe, brambly spicy fruit on the nose. On the palate, the rich, dark plum fruit is weightier than the 2005 but still balanced by the supple, fine-grained tannins and a lifted acidity on the finish. It is long and elegant on the finish.
