Always characterful, Apsley Gorge's particular trademark is the richly luscious and structured palate. The bouquet is strikingly aromatic (even pretty) with red rose florals, slightly smoky szechuan pepper plus the typical Apsley blood and stone. Sweet red cherry fruit and a little darker plum sweep across the palate; the tannins are ultra fine and slightly chalky, and the flavours go on and on.
Deep mulberry colour. Rich aromas of dark fruits, Dutch licorice, vanilla and at the end the bright lift of roses and white pepper. In the mouth the licorice and dark cherry elements combine in a tasty sweet/sour agrodolce way. Smooth and perfectly balanced with fine tannin and almost invisible oak. On the finish, the acid lifts the flavours, and that's another Bream Creek hallmark - the wine retains its essential elegance despite the big flavours.
The 'Black' label is a super-luxe, full bodied pinot noir with a wonderful structural framework to match. Aromatic with intense bramble-berries, wet stone and rose florals. Slightly smoky hints too - all most appealing. Plenty of ripe fruit in the mouth but this is tempered with well-integrated, savoury notes from the oak, and eggshell-like tannins. It's rewarding drinking now, but keep for 24 months for optimum drinking.
A beautiful, intense violet and red currant nose which if you allow it time, really becomes so expressive in the glass. The palate is really complex with a spicy, savory darker cherry and a delightfully lingering finish. A really impressive young wine.
Bursting bright strawberries and raspberries elegantly open up in the glass to reveal fresh cut violets and traces of truffles and toasty oak. The youthful palate shows us more of the same raspberries but with Morello cherries and an elegant, almost nuttiness from the oak.
An impressive bright bouquet of strawberries and cherry combining so perfectly with the subtle spice. The palate is showing more of a savory streak with dark cherry leading the charge before the perfectly judged oak, tannin and that long lingering finish.
