Our pick of the month: Angel’s Peak, Coonawarra Shiraz 2016
The name ‘Angels Peak’ is a tongue-in-cheek reference to the lack of ‘peaks’ in the very flat Coonawarra.
No residual sugar, below organic levels of sulphur, 18 month in 100% French Oak Barrels (20% new). This wine has seamless mint dark chocolate and coffee notes, over silky mulberries and molasses.
Lift this bottle to the light and try to see through the neck. The density of colour shows the quality of the grapes that went into this wine. Since flavour and deep colour in Shiraz comes from the skin, we grow our grapes smaller, about the size of a pea.
Our 2016 vintage was awarded:
- 5 star and equal top in category, Winestate Magazine 2018
- Double Gold – 13th G100 International Wine and Spirits Awards 2019
