This wine comes presented in a heavy weight bowling pin sized bottle that is matched for size by only the hefty alcohol level which weighs in at a substantial 16.4%.

Dense black dark red opaque colour with very deep black dark red hue. The nose displays aromas of super ripe dark plum, dark chocolate and ripe blackberry followed by some liquorice and confectionary end notes. Monumental palate with super concentrated, opulent flavours of black plum, very ripe blackberry, dark chocolate and liquorice showing no signs of heat. Fine grained tannin structure with very long aftertaste of blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and spice.
Cellar 4-5 years (2014-2015)
Alc 16.4%

Other Reviews….
The Single Vineyard series begins with the 2006 Shiraz Zippy’s Block Roennfeldt Road, located in the Marananga sub-district of Barossa, an address made famous by Greenock Creek Vineyards and Cellar. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a complex, expressive nose of pain grille, spice box, scorched earth, plum, and blueberry. This is followed by a mouth-filling, voluminous Shiraz with opulent blue and black fruits, savory
flavors, and an exceptionally long, silky finish. Cellar it for five years and drink it from 2013
to 2026.
