2022 L.R.C. Greenock Shiraz

Greenock, Barossa Valley - 98% Shiraz, 2% Riesling

 

144 Shiraz, a few Riesling, one Mataro and a lone stranger make up a stand of 1967 planted vines that once formed the boundary row of an old vineyard. The siblings of this row have long gone with subdivisions and housing taking their place. The boundary row survived as they grow on land owned by the Light Regional Council - L.R.C. The L.R.C. recognised the importance of these beautiful 57-year old Shiraz vines and in conjunction with Eperosa’s sister company Grocke Viticulture have ensured their survival. The genetic material of the Shiraz that makes this row is distinct to any other Barossa Shiraz I've seen. Dry farmed. 14.3% Alc.

 

Tasting Notes: Gamey, raw meats, charcuterie, lamb roast with gravy and mint sauce. Steak pan jus along with black pepper, anise and mushrooms. An undercurrent of fine red fruits. Soft, balanced and full fruited through the palate with a spicy, meaty complexity. Every year the unique qualities of the LRC astound me. Complex and so different in a beautiful and intoxicating way. Fine, elegant and long tannins from the clay based soils. The perfect blind tasting wine.
