Greenock Creek Wines

South Australia | Barossa Valley

James' Review

Michael and Annabelle Waugh are disciples of Rocky O'Callaghan of Rockford Wines, and have deliberately accumulated a series of old dryland, low-yielding Barossa vineyards, aiming to produce wines of unusual depth of flavour and character. They have succeeded handsomely in this aim, achieving icon status and stratospheric prices in the US, making the opinions of Australian scribes irrelevant. They also offer superior accommodation in ‘Miriam's', the ancient but beautifully restored two-bedroom cottage (Michael Waugh is also a skilled stonemason). Falls victim to 'no samples, no rating' rule, although quality is doubtless very good. Exports to the UK, the US, Canada, France, Switzerland, Germany, Denmark, Russia and Asia.
