2016 Angullong Cabernet Sauvignon

Cool climate cabernet sauvignon is a wonderful wine. Complexity and texture, along with lovely flavours of blackberry, olive and blackcurrant are presented within a structural wine that has lovely fine tannins. It’s a wine that will reward a few years in the cellar.

REVIEWS & AWARDS

“… a no-nonsense, satisfying, typically regional Cabernet Sauvignon offering by Ben Crossing and the Angullong team. This 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon from the Orange region reflects its terroir and varietal attributes. 3 years of development have started to round off the angularity of components. This leads to a delivery of grippy savouriness with gobsful of red currant / dark berries.  Wafts of tobacco & maraschino cherries mingle with coconut essence to tease the taste buds.  This is all very well supported by textural tannins and sweet glycerol warmth. This well-priced 2016 Angullong Cabernet Sauvignon can be enjoyed now but will also benefit from some cellaring.” The Grape Hunter, Gilbert Labour, Aug 2019
