2014 Angels’ Share McLaren Vale Shiraz
Always a ‘good bottle of wine’ for those seeking generous reds. When I get asked for recommendations on lip-smacking, bolder style red wines, this often comes to mind. Consistent wine and feels like value at price.
It’s heady in perfume from 2014; ripe berries, nougat oak, plum jam. Ample in the nose. Floods the palate with sticky-textured wine, dash of spice, prickle of tangy acidity. Long smooth ride, finishes a little fumey and bitter, but overall good, easy drinking, and satisfying in weight and generous flavour.
