Expert Reviews

The 2004 Shiraz “Apricot Block” was aged for 28 months in older American oak. It has an expressive bouquet of cedar, tar, pepper, violets, blueberry, and licorice. Full-bodied, smoothly-textured, layered, and rich, this intense, powerful wine should drink well for 12-15 years.

Greenock Creek Vineyard and Cellars, owned by Michael and Annabelle Waugh, is one of the Barossa’s benchmark wineries. Start with a great terroir, add in old vine material, and meticulous winemaking and the results are usually extraordinary.
