Opaque inky black colour with a deep very dark red black tinged hue. Aromas of ripe black plums and liquorice are followed by fennel, some vanillin cedar and spice. Full bodied, rich ripe black plum, liquorice and blackberry flavours saturate the palate over a backdrop of fennel, dark chocolate, vanillin oak, a touch of leather and spice. Very concentrated and rich with no apparent heat on the finish. Velvet smooth tannins finishing very long with an aftertaste of black plums, liquorice, fennel, vanillin oak, leather and spice.Awards:
Greenock Creek is the home of the world famous Roennfeldt Road Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon, both of which have achieved the much sought after Robert Parker 100 Points.
The 2005 Apricot Block Shiraz received the same upbringing as the Alice’s and is a similar glass-coating, opaque purple. An enticing perfume of cedar, scorched earth, pepper, violets, bacon, and blueberry leaps from the glass. A bit more restrained (a mere 15.0% alcohol) than its siblings, it is nevertheless a silky, layered, intensely flavored Shiraz with gobs of fruit and a 60-second finish. It should provide much pleasure from 2012 to 2025.
