Estate Notes

Branson's Coach House Greenock Block Shiraz 2005 was purchased in its original wooden case, and is rich and concentrated, yet lively and zippy; redolent of its quality estate grown single vineyard near the tiny hamlet of Greenock in the sub-region of the Barossa Valley.

Branson was purchased by the Two Hands estate in 2007. Two Hands was established by Michael Twelftree and Richard Mintz in 1999 in order to make the best possible Shiraz in Australia, and their eclectically named wines have consistently won rave reviews. In fact, Two Hands has earned a place in the Wine Spectator Top 100 Wines for ten years in a row, the only winery in the world to ever achieve this feat.

Reviews

"Smooth and polished, with lots of raspberry and black cherry flavors playing beautifully against plush tannins, the flavors lingering on the finish as they pick up black plum and spice notes." Wine Spectator

"Powerful raspberry and blackberry aromas are complicated by Asian spices and fresh flowers, with a suave overlay of sexy oak. Creamy dark fruit flavors display a brooding quality; this took on blueberry and creme de cassis qualities with air. A weighty, layered shiraz with a long, sweet finish featuring slow-mounting tannins and a strong impression of plum compote." Josh Reynolds

"The 2005 Shiraz “Greenock Block” is opaque purple-colored with aromas of pain grille, black pepper, scorched earth, blueberry compote, and blackberry liqueur. Intense and layered, this full-bodied effort packs a punch. There are gobs of fruit and plenty of tannin under the surface. This unsubtle but powerful wine can be cellared for several years and will drink well through 2020." eRobertParker.com
