Greenock Creek Casey's Block Shiraz 2018 (Barossa Valley)

Greenock Creek Casey's Block Shiraz 2018 vintage tasting notes - 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

The vines for the Casey’s Block Shiraz were planted in 2009 in deep alluvial soil, similar to the Alices and Mataro vineyards. It is approximately 8 acres in size, crops at around 2 tonnes per acre and is named after Annabelle’s father, whose nickname was Casey. It is situated on Peter Seppelt Road, and the cuttings for the vines were taken from five of the existing Greenock Creek Wines’ vineyards, including the Roennfeldt Road blocks. Consequently this combination of cuttings has produced a wine with unique characteristics and complex flavours.

Like all the Greenock Creek wines the grapes are kept separate to produce a single estate wine. The grapes are picked on phenological ripeness and flavour, at a baume range of 14 to 16°. This baume sometimes produces a naturally occurring high alcohol, although this will depend on seasonal conditions.

The grapes are fermented in large, shallow open masonry fermenters, pumped over, chilled and pressed through a basket press. It is then racked into barrels to undergo natural MLF, keeping the free run and pressings separate to be blended back together prior to bottling. The wine is pumped into seasoned American hogsheads with a small percentage going into new oak barrels. It is then left to mature for approximately 26 months, and is usually not filtered or fined prior to bottling. Winery Notes
