Winery Notes: "Penfolds RWT Shiraz presents an admirable alternative to the multi-regional sourcing and American oak maturation that are hallmarks of Grange, expressing instead, singler egion Barossa Valley Shiraz matured only in French oak. The initials RWT stand for ‘Red Winemaking Trial’, the name given to the project internally when developmental work began in 1995. Naturally, now no longer a ‘Trial’ RWT Shiraz was launched in May 2000 with the 1997 vintage. Its style is opulent and fleshy, contrasting with Grange, which is more muscular and assertiv...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Rolf Binder’s top wines include the 2004 Hubris, a blend of 60% Shiraz and 40% Mataro (Mourvedre).

2005 Greenock Creek "Seven Acre" Shiraz Barossa Valley

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Seven Acres Shiraz was also aged for 28 months in seasoned American oak hogsheads. Tar, mineral, earth notes, smoked meat, and blueberry scents jump from the glass of this full-bodied but restrained (relatively speaking) Shiraz. On the palate it is a bit more austere than its siblings with a bit more structure and apparent acidity. As a result, it will require longer cellaring and should offer prime drinking from 2015 to 2030. Greenock Creek Vineyard & Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, remains o... Read More »

1997 Greenock Creek "Seven Acre" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The opaque purple-colored 1997 Shiraz Seven Acres Vineyard offers a knock-out nose of cassis liqueur intertwined with cherries and licorice, great intensity and purity, huge body, and layers of glycerin that coat the palate. The wine's low acidity and gorgeous fruit make it irresistible now, but it will develop more complexity over the next 7-8 years, and drink well for two decades. (RP)" (2/2000)

1998 Greenock Creek Cabernet Sauvignon Barossa Valley South Australia

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon (100% Cabernet Sauvignon from 11-year old vines, aged in a combination of one-year old and new French oak) is a fruit-dominated wine with the classic cassis intermixed with a touch of herbs, a slight notion of volatile acidity, and a spicy finish. The wine is full-bodied, ripe, but at the same time, elegant, particularly for a Greenock Creek wine." (6/2001) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Full ruby color. Pungent, oaky aromas of iron, smoke, nutmeg and mint. Lush red berry fruit complicated by hints of meat, iron and milk chocolate. Finishes with sweet, lush t ...Read More »

1999 Greenock Creek "Seven Acre" Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "From 13-year old vines, the powerhouse 1999 Shiraz Seven Acre (aged in new and old American oak for 28 months) boasts an opaque purple color along with a sweet nose of melted licorice intermixed with blackberry jam, white flowers, pepper, and a hint of toast. It offers layers of gorgeous fruit, voluptuousness, density, great purity, and a finish that lasts nearly 40 seconds. This stunning Shiraz (750 cases) typifies what can be produced at the pinnacle of winemaking in the Barossa Valley. (RP)" (10/2002)

2002 Greenock Creek "Seven Acre" Shiraz Barossa

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2002 Shiraz Seven Acre (from 15-year-old vines) is a structured, concentrated, intense effort with inky, blueberry, and blackberry fruit intermixed with camphor and loamy soil notes, fabulous length, and a full-throttle finish that lasts over 45 seconds. Give it 2-3 years of bottle age, and drink it over the following 15+ years." (10/2005)
