About

Super saturated inky black in colour with an equally deep black dark red hue. Wafting out of the glass are heady aromas of black cherry, liquorice and blackberry which are married to black plum, toasty vanillin oak, dried meat and blackpepper notes. Dense, rich and voluptuous, the full bodied palate is drenched in lavish liquorice, blackberry and black cherry fruits which overlay smoky vanillin cedar, fennel and blackpepper elements. The sturdy tannin structure takes on a velvet like appearance beneath the sheer weight and volume of fruit. Superb power finishing long, opulent and seductive.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.

Named after an old orchard that was removed and planted out to shiraz in 1995, the Apricot block, for my schnoz at least, quite often presents as one of the broodier offerings in the Greenock Creek quiver. Characters of blackberry and cherry, prune, brandied fruits and macerated plums cut with spice, dried citrus rind and earth with a fine, chocolatey tannin bite and a crème de cassis-like intensity to the fruit on the finish. Drink by 2038.
