Greenock Estate Angas King Shiraz 2016


Clare Valley Shiraz rarely receives the love and affection that it is surely due. The Angas King range reflects upon the qualities of Shiraz from a number of the better regions in South Australia and the Clare sits comfortably with them. The wine spent 18 months in French oak. Dark blood red in colour, there is dense fruit here with chocolate, olives, warm earth and more. Some oak influence assists in tying everything together. This has full power and concentration, as well as flavour, but it does offer a little more elegance than many with good balance. As we move to the palate, we see more blackberry and tobacco leaf notes emerge plus good focus. The intensity is maintained the full journey and right through to a very long finish. This has six to ten years plus ahead of it.
