Notes Sourced from eRobertParker.comsize>
From 13-year old vines, the powerhouse 1999 Shiraz Seven Acre (aged in new and old American oak for 28 months) boasts an opaque purple color along with a sweet nose of melted licorice intermixed with blackberry jam, white flowers, pepper, and a hint of toast. It offers layers of gorgeous fruit, voluptuousness, density, great purity, and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. This stunning Shiraz (750 cases) typifies what can be produced at the pinnacle of winemaking in the Barossa Valley.

Notes sourced from Greenock Creek
This one’s more dense and typically GC than the cheeky cabernet and Apricot Block reds. In a sense, it’s more like the reedy old Creek Block to sniff, because of its muddy, swampy base tones. Those aside, it’s all ripe red berries of myriad facets, in a really rich fruitcake bouquet, with well-cooked spice and rind. In wicked juxtaposition, shots of Parade Gloss boot polish bounce neatly off a rich whiff of Chanel Number 5.The palate’s typical Greenock Creek, full, soft, silky and unctuous, bit with really good natural-looking acidity as well as the usual extremely fine-grained tannin. The flavours show the increasing maturity of the Seven Acre vines: this is more complex wine than this vineyard has previously given us. At first, the acidity seems overt, but with time it slides beneath the surface of the usual Holy Syrup, only to reappear in the puckery, gum-sucking aftertaste. The wine will easily go to 2015. 92+ points.
