Greenock Creek Casey's Block Shiraz 2018

ANOTHER STUNNING VINTAGE FROM ONE OF THE GREAT WINERIES OF BAROSSA! 

 

"Firstly, note the labelled alcohol level – you feel this immediately as you approach the wine in the glass. It lifts out as you sniff and smell. It tells you unequivocally that it is very ripe Seppeltsfield district shiraz, built solidly from a vineyard planted with selected cuttings from four of the estate’s single-vineyard plantings. So, in some ways this is a compendium wine, super-rich and dense with dark fruits, sweet, powerful, forget the graces and airs. The GC crew itself describes its flavour profile as “luscious plum sauce”. The palate richness is a mountain of fruit and oak with smooth chocolate feel as well – and, yes, some alcohol warmth on the finish. " Tony Love, Wine Pilot

 

"Patience is a virtue and you’d be well served to exercise it with this punchy number. The fruit was plucked from a block planted to select cuttings from four estate Shiraz parcels. There’s power behind its deep, dark, veil. Intense Dutch liquorice, a medley of blackcurrant and black olive aromas lead the pack. The palate packs a punch. Luscious stewed plums, cranberries, cocoa, a pinch of rosemary, and searing acidity (the likes of which reduce you to a delightfully dribbling mess). Bury it deep in your cellar. It will embrace the test of time." - Katie Spain
