2021 Angels’ Share Shiraz
Angels’ Share, a gorgeous silky rich shiraz
Angels share refers to the small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation, Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over their wines and that they took their share.
Powerful and rich, deep dark red with a bright core
Notes of blue fruits accented by plum, blueberry and mulberry tones. Complexing notes of briar, bay leaf, coriander seeds, dried rose petals and ash.
Demonstrating a level of restraint for a McLaren Vale red, this Shiraz provides sweet blue fruit notes of fresh blueberry, juniper and mulberry bracketed by a cleansing pop of acidity and savoury tannin. The sweet fruit entry gently yields to savoury notes of dried bay leaf, briar, dried herbs and dried rose petals. A wine of sneaky length that catches you off-guard, it slowly builds across the palate. The late palate is punctuated by notes of ash and wild game.
