Eisenstone Greenock Barossa Valley Shiraz SR 801 2017
Awarded 97 points and "Best of the Best" wines in James Halliday Wine Companion 2021.
"Matured in French oak (50% new) for 20 months. Has the qualities that I see (and enjoy) as the mark of a special vintage: lighter footfall, more spice and savoury nuances, and a long finish that expands like the peacock's tail. The special bonus is a final surge of fresh red fruits."
James Halliday, Hallidays Wine Companion, 97/100
The wine is dense, deep red in colour. The flavours are fresh wild berry, mulberries and other dark fruits. French oak integrates with the fruit and lend a savoury spice nuance without dominating. The wine is generous and opulent in while young and this will continue to develop as it ages. As the wine matures the flavours will develop towards fruitcake, licorice, chocolate and mocha.
This wine will continue to mature until at least 2030. Only 800 bottles, each individually numbered.
