Greenock Creek Apricot Block Shiraz 2019

$50.00

The Apricot Block is located in the Marananga sub-region of the Barossa. Before its transformation into a vineyard, the site was an apricot orchard. Whether it is the power of suggestion or a collision with reality, one does wonder if there is not just a hint of stone fruit found in the aromas. Almost as though there is a dollop of Viognier. For me, a perennial favourite.  It would be fair to assume the 2018, a terrific vintage in the Barossa, might be the better wine, but I am not certain it is. A great effort by the winemaking team.

Inky black with delightful aromas of chocolate, florals, spices, black cherries and cloves. There is serious intensity here and the palate is seamless and concentrated. Very fine, satiny tannins but the key is the immaculate balance. The wine maintains its intensity all throughout a very long finish. This has twenty years ahead of it, but is pretty special now. A cracker. – 96 Points Ken Gargett, Wine Pilot
