The two new wines are both from the ‘textbook’ 2015 vintage. 2015 was an almost perfect vintage in Orange. The ripening period was cool and long, ensuring great flavour, tannin and balance. The soil had good moisture due to winter rain and there was no real disease pressure. The beauty of the vintage was that we could pick at the optimal time, rather than be dictate to by the weather.
The Grape Hunter, Gilbert Labour, September 2015: The 2015 Angullong Sauvignon Blanc "displays a spectrum of pineapple, gooseberry with a definite zesty citrus backbone. The freshness and savoury astringency camouflage the 13% Alc and carry the flavour profile to a crisp finish."
