Barossa Valley Greenock Creek Roennfeldt Road Cabernet Sauvignon Information
About the domain
Greenock Creek was established in 1988 by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, who started their venture with two wines: Creek Block Shiraz and Chardonnay. They both worked hard, without seeking accolades, with the sole aim of producing quality wines made exclusively from grapes grown on their own domaine. In 2016, their lives took a new turn when they founded a new cellar in the heart of Marananga, which is open to visitors.
About the cuvée
This cuvée is produced from 80-year-old vines planted on the estate’s smallest parcel. The wine is aged in French oak for three years, bottled unfiltered, and then aged for another two years at the property before it is released onto the market. This is a very intense Cabernet Sauvignon combining notes of wild berries with very ripe fruits.

General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
