This big, ripe, plummy Barossa Shiraz continues to evolve well.

Retasted November 2010:
Totally opaque black dark purple red colour with very deep dark purple red hue. The nose offers up scents of super ripe dark plums and blackberry followed by some clove and vanillin spice. Opulent and concentrated the palate delivers voluptuous flavours of very ripe plum, liquorice and blackberry followed by some spicy clove and toast like characters on the back palate. Superb length with velvet smooth tannins and very long aftertaste of ripe black plums, blackberry, liquorice and spice.
Drink over next 2-3 years (2010-2013)
Alc 15.0%

A superb example of Classic Barossa Shiraz.

Retasted May 2007:
Totally opaque, black crimson colour, with black crimson hue. Perfumed nose of vanilla, confectionary, violet, spice and dark chocolate, delivering a wonderful sniff. The palate is generous, with excellent weight and depth. Joosy primary fruit flavours with layers of vanilla, plum, confectionary and spice, all perfectly balanced with fine grained tannins. Very long aftertaste of plum, vanilla and confectionary.
Cellar 3-4 years (2010-2011)

Rich and ripe with powerful fruit flavours of plum, blackberry, liquorice, vanilla, dark chocolate and mocha, with some spice and pepper on the finish. Very long aftertaste of plum, liquorice, vanilla and black pepper, with a velvet smooth texture.

Other Reviews...
The 2004 Shiraz “Alice’s Block” received the same 28 months in used American oak. The riveting nose of smoke, asphalt, earth, truffle, blackberry, and blueberry roars from the glass. Dense, packed, and opulent, it somehow is able to concurrently exhibit finesse and elegance. Amazingly pure and long in the finish, one’s first reaction is that it cannot get any better. Remarkably, it does. Greenock Creek Vineyard and Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, is one of the Barossa’s benchmark wineries. Start with a great terroir, add in old vine material, and meticulous winemaking and the results are usually extraordinary.
