Reviews of purchase Greenock Creek, "Apricot Block" Shiraz, 2011
Wine opaque inky crimson color with deep crimson-red hues.
The taste of wine is full bodied, quite concentrated, with hints of ripe plums and blackberries, licorice and spice nuances, with a harmonious aftertaste with hints of blackberry, plum and spice.
The wine has a rich aroma with notes of ripe dark plums and blackberries, nuances of dark chocolate and spices.
The wine goes well with aromatic venison, pork or beef, and will be a perfect pair with seasoned cheddar cheese.
In 1976, Michael and Annabel purchased in Radford Road farm, located in a hilly area between the villages and Marananga Greenock, on the western edge of the Barossa Valley. Then it looked like this: dilapidated 150-year-old house surrounded by a garden of almond and apricot trees with a tiny portion of the old vines varieties Shiraz, stretching along the creek. After a few years, thanks to substantial financial costs and tremendous effort on the part of the new owner, Radford Road has become a well-tended property, today known worldwide as "Greenock Creek Wines."
The farm has grown only red grape varieties, of which five different wines made of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and two Grenache. Unique, cult wine "Greenock Creek" produced in very small quantities - only 2500 cases a year - and get them to their collection is considered to be a big success. "I was absolutely amazed at the quality of these wines ... This massive, richly textured, extraordinary wine" - wrote in his revue about wines "Greenock Creek" renowned expert Robert Parker.
