About the wine

South Australian brilliance
  • Cheers to a new era for Naked SA Shiraz! This juicy, brooding number has been tried and tested by thousands of Angels over the years, each vintage delivering its own personality. The 2017 vintage delivered powerful berry layers and a persistent finish.
  • Delivering quality from vineyard to your table is the driving passion for Geoff and his team. Transforming their Lodestar label into their re-energised Grounded Cru project has been spurred on by unprecedented opportunities and amazing Angel feedback since starting their Naked journey in 2013.
  • If the history, flavour and moreish nature of this wine isn't enough to have you head over heels, the tiny Angel exclusive price will have you looking twice and stocking up. Enjoy every sip of this trusty little red, you've earned it!

Best before
Absolutely approachable right now, however 3-5 years of careful cellaring will allow this Shiraz to develop further suppleness and complexity.

Serving advice
Best enjoyed in the 16-18ºC range - no need to get too fussy but some aeration certainly opens up this youthful Shiraz for greater expression of the fruit.

Food match
Eye Fillet of beef cooked medium/rare on the grill, served with Mediterranean vegetables and a leafy green salad with crusty bread. Simple, pure flavours, quality ingredients..Sunday afternoon on the deck with good company - perfect!

Meet the winemaker - Geoff Thompson

  • Geoff loves everything about wine... the vineyards, the winemaking process, the people and food & wine together. Wine is Geoff's passion, it's his creative science and it all starts in the vineyard!
  • He has been a winemaker for 14 years, working for others which allowed Geoff to fine tune his craft but now is the time for him to be able to drive his own wine styles and offer them to Angels.
  • It's no secret that Shiraz is Geoff's favourite varietal but he is always chasing varietal definition and balance in all of his wines. The key for him is to provide the value proposition at all price points.
