Terroirs of the Barossa ‘Greenock’ Shiraz 2019
$60.00 / bottle
The dark, brooding regional characters of plum, red cherry and liquorice are all to the fore of this wine.
The palate is focused and linear, with dark bitter chocolate notes and an elegant long persistent finish. We recommend cellaring for 10 years.
The most westerly zone of the Barossa, known as the Western Slopes, gives rise to some of the richest expressions of Shiraz from the Barossa.
Soil: Heavy brown earth, red clay and crackled ironstone
To ensure the unique character of this sub-region is exemplified in the wine, small open fermenters and our basket press were employed to gently extract the wine.
Aging in the finest quality oak and selection of the truest barrels has created a wine that respects and expresses its place of origin.

Offering blackberry, vanilla, anise, dark chocolate and assorted nut aromas, it’s wonderfully comforting and lingering with silky texture and loads of delectable flavours. Superbly structured by beautifully melded tannins, it’s deeply satisfying and hugely appealing. At its best: 2024 to 2039

Deep crimson. Classic blackberry elderberry dark chocolate aromas with herb garden, espresso, liquorice notes. Generously shaped with plentiful choco-berry flavours, fine looseknit chalky/ velvety textures, underlying roasted walnut/maturation notes and fresh crisp linear/ saline acidity. Finishes grainy firm and bitter-sweet. Well balanced near-plush wine with lovely density and mineral length. Drink now – 2026

Shiraz sourced from the famous western Barossa subregion of Greenock. Château Tanunda have captured the subregional nuance nicely here. Deep, rich blackberry and satsuma plum notes are underscored by dark spice, ironstone, espresso, cedar, blackstrap licorice and earth. Impressive fruit depth and smoothly textured flow, tight talcy tannins providing the scaffolding, bright acidity the drive, as the wine drifts into the distance, opulent, black fruited and pure.
