Critic Reviews

DDS review

Dark, deep, impenetrable colour here. Imposing and luxurious with deep satsuma plum, black and blue berries, a lift of lavender and the fine cedary feel of top-class French oak. It coasts like a Rolls-Royce, smooth and effortless across the palate. It's swanky and stylish, destined for great things in years to come. Beautiful wine. Bravo. - Different Drop Wine Team

"Greenock Shiraz, and a very good one at that. Inky black thing this is, almost impenetrable. Grilled meat, lavender, blueberry and blackberry, dark spices and vanilla. Full bodied, thick with sheets of dense, compact tannin, almost a slaty feel here, well-bedded acidity, and for all the thunder, there’s something of a petrichor perfume going on in the mouth, along with scrub herbs. The finish rolls on and on, and is slick with tannin, and fresh ‘minerally’ acidity.  Enriched by glorious tannin, fragrance and spice of Shiraz, and regional earthiness: it’s a fantastic expression of the Barossa." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

Additional Info

From The Producer

Every now and then we humble winegrowers receive a gift from the grape gods in the form of a perfect vintage growing season.
I feel that 2016 was precisely that, with a very dry winter and spring lead up to harvest and some serendipitous rainfall in late January.

As such, 2016 afforded the rare combination of rich palate filling wines of beautifully ripe tannins as well as the freshness of alluring graceful aromatics. Yielding four absolute standout parcels, certainly some of the best offerings I have ever seen from these particular vineyard sites.
