Continuing along the modern and stylish theme of the Elderton Greenock One Shiraz, the Elderton ‘Greenock Two’ is a modern take on this traditional blend. 49% Shiraz, 41% Mourvedre, and 10% Grenache make up the components. This wine is from vines planed in 1969 in Barossa Western edge, near the small township of Greenock.
On the nose the 2013 Greenock Two shows quite a meaty, savoury character, presumably from the larger component of Mourvedre. Dusty cocoa and a pretty floral waft keep it alluring.
On the palate its silky tannins and well bodied. Ripe blue fruit and a red fruit hint, chocolate and liquorice. Fresh cracked black pepper, and touch of juniper. Ultimately leading to a pleasurable, complex and intriguing wine which from a great vintage.
