Greenock perfectly embodies what ‘boutique’ Barossa is all about, with a ‘quilt-like’ mosaic of old head pruned vineyards and a  handful  of sheds scattered over the rolling landscape. It marks the north western outpost of the Barossa Valley and sits on the Western Range at an altitude of almost 300 metres above sea level.

The Keller Vineyard, was planted in the 1950’s with the most traditional of Barossa varieties - Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro - on the traditional red clay soils so common in this region.

The wines from here have quickly gained a loyal following and show the fragrance and delicacy aligned to the power for which the north-western Barossa is famed. With abundant fragrance and fruit sweetness supported by a latent richness beneath, these are wines that will richly reward extended cellaring.
