2017 Angullong Shiraz

Cooler climate Shiraz tends to display more spice and pepper compared to that of the warmer regions. Our 2017 Angullong Shiraz is exactly that. It is a flavoursome wine with ripe dark forest berry flavours with a spicy complexity and lingering smooth tannins. The is a wine to enjoy now, or let mature in the bottle over the next five or so years.

REVIEWS & AWARDS

“The wines from Angullong are always solid. This Shiraz is no different. Spicy from the outset as blackberry fruit seeks some wriggle room to shine. Cracked pepper and wood spices keep it in check. The bright and energetic acidity to close calls for tapas and barbecued food.” QWINE, Aug 2019

 

“Dark fruits, blackberry and pepper. Balanced but with real body and structure.” Daryl Fisher, National Liquor News

 

“A good mouth-filling Shiraz. A bell curve of flavour intensifies across the palate. Nice grip of tannin but all in balance.”  Michael Park, National Liquor News
