Greenock Creek Casey’s Block
Harvested from the Seppeltsfield property from 2010 plantings that were cuttings from the Estate’s other Shiraz blocks.
Soil profile is loam mixed with red/brown clays.
Purple red blush with garnet hues. Blackcurrant with cherry and coco powder.
Generous and fruit driven. Dark chocolate and vanilla bean round out the dense layers of plums and blueberries.
Inviting, soft tannins give a sense of plushness to the palate with buttered toast and dried figs to finish.
The 2017 vintage was preceded by drenching winter rains that allowed healthy canopy development and good fruit set.
The summer leading into harvest was unusually cool, with frequent rain events resulting in grapes with great natural acid balance and freshness.
The resultant wines are elegant with fruit purity and definition.
Drinking well from now to 8+ years.Awards:
