The 2020 Coach House Block Seppeltsfield Road Greenock Shiraz is brooding and dense, and the tannins, which whorl around on the palate, are spread out and omnipresent, leaving me with thoughts of galaxies and stars. The fruit is black and spicy, and with all things taken into account, this is one of the spicier, more exciting wines in the high-quality single-vineyard lineup. Through the mid-palate and finish, there is a spool of exotic spice and fine tannin, and it lingers and draws you in for another sip. Very smart.
Drink Date: 2022 – 2032
The Coach House Block Shiraz comes from an estate grown single vineyard near the tiny hamlet of Greenock in the Barossa Valley.
It is generous and supple whilst soft and approachable upon release. An ultra-rich, heady, mouth-filling Shiraz that combines balanced acidity and mid-palate texture.
Mid to deep crimson red.
Notes of salted plums, lavender, fresh blackberry, fresh jam, wet earth and balsam.
Hits the palate with classic western Barossa generosity. Sweet and savoury notes intertwine and provide plenty of light and shade. Spicy plums, blue fruits and lavender dominate. Interesting notes of balsam and baking spices along with milk chocolate add depth and layers. Tannins are chewy in nature and run long on a very detailed and complex palate.
