About the wine

A soft, silky stand out!
  • Back in the hands of Angels, Jen's 2017 vintage Hero Cabernet Merlot is posied to steal the show once again! Your glass will take on a lovely dark red colour, and display incredible red berry, dry herbs and violet perfumes. The palate is generous and juicy, with vibrant berry and cherry fruit, a lusciously supple mouth feel and a long tasty finish.
  • In Jen's words: "As my Naked journey has continued, my growers have gained the confidence in the market to put all the inputs into the vineyard, which results in happy vines and delicious grapes. This subsequently means better wines and better value for Angels. But then again, that is the Naked way, isn't it!"
  • Each of the three Heathcote, Rutherglen and King Valley parcels were ripened at different stages and picked at varying intervals to be made into wine separately by Jen, before being blended to perfection. The Hero range are the next step up from the Rebel range, giving you the max quality for minimal dosh - enjoy!

Best before
Ready to love now or enjoy until 2025.

Serving advice
Jen recommends opening and allowing to breathe (or decant) for 2 hours prior to serving. Serve a touch chilled 16-18 ºC.

Food match
Pasta with chorizo, tomato and fennel goes down a treat with this wine! Home-made pumpkin gnocchi with a sage and burnt butter sauce is a scrumptious vegetarian option.
