Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

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.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Firm and chewy, with gritty tannins around a glowing core of blackberry and spice flavors, lingering on the weighty finish.

About This Producer


Established in 1978, Greenock Creek is a tiny "boutique" Barossa winery with a production level of only 2,500 cases per year, owned by Michael and Annabel Waugh. Greenock Creek produces Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet with grapes from two prime growing regions in the heart of the Barossa Valley: Seppeltsfield and Marananga. Michael Waugh makes 100% Shiraz, Grenache and Cabernet; each wine is created with fruit from a particular vineyard block. Yields are low, ridiculously so in the case of the Roennfeldt Road Shiraz and Cabernet blocks, where half a ton an acre is typical from the 60-year-old vines.
