2019 Greenock Creek Apricot Block Shiraz
Hand-harvested fruit from the estate vineyard in Marananga. Basket pressed; matured 21 months in seasoned American oak barrels; unfined and unfiltered. Grand power and inky concentration. Deep, black purple hue. Extractive impact of blackberry, blueberry, plum and licorice. Firm, bitter dark chocolate tannin bite declares both fruit extraction and American oak impact. Big, brawny and grainy. Drink by 2024.
