- From the vineyard to the glass, this stunning Reserve Shiraz has been meticulously crafted at every step. It's a blend of the finest Shiraz wines from the best vineyard sites in South Australia's premium regions - Barossa, McLaren Vale and Clare - both his own and those of his trusted growers.
- Carefully hand made and matured in French oak, the small batches are then barrel selected and blended in order to achieve the desired super premium style. Only the very best of the best made it to the final cut so there are only a handful of bottles available.
- You’ll be tantalised by its scent of brambly fruit, blackcurrants and dark chocolate with hints of vanilla and star anise. Full-bodied flavours of blood plum, mulberries, mocha and liquorice and mouth coating, velvety tannins give the wine great power and drive, and will allow it a long life in the cellar.
Each parcel of grapes was individually open-fermented to bring out its unique character, and aged in old oak barrels for almost 2 years.
Pour a glass and enjoy the deep, dark berry and chocolate flavours and soft tannins as it hugs your tongue. The grip of drought in 2019 reduced the grape volumes but pushed the flavours into overdrive.
- Treated with the utmost respect for the fruit and the region, this glorious red will put a huge smile on your face. One sip will reveal why Stuey won the title 2020 Barossa Winemaker of the Year!
- Hand grown and picked by Tait Hamilton whose family vineyard is on the prestige soils of Heathcote. Tait is a hardworking and careful grower, and he has a site which is an incredible gift from nature!
- Your glass will be boldly coloured with youthful magenta on the rim. Scrumptious layers of plum, blackberries, chocolate and raisins will sing along with earthy, peppery hints. Tannins are ripe and plush, lending texture to round out each powerful, flavour packed slurp!
- The low pH of Tait's fruit is associated with bright colour and 'stable' wine which can almost make itself with minimal intervention - the challenge is not messing up the natural gift. The wine is full bodied with warmth from ripe fruit and subsequent high alcohol. Time spent in new an one year old oak barrels has given it a moreish, smokey finish. Go on, treat yourself to the tip-top of Naked's shelves!
- This Rosé was harvested from Shiraz grapes off the Little Boomey Vineyard in Orange.
- Steve is thrilled with the end result - a dreamy cool climate Rosé especially for Angels! It's bursting with crisp fresh strawberries and raspberries.
- Steve did very little to fine his wine, so you can be sure a bottle of this brilliance will deliver the most pure and refreshing Rosé experience you've had all summer! NSW wines are on the rise and rise, especially those from the high altitude of Orange - lock in your supply!
- A delicious dance of certified biodynamic Wrattonbully and Mount Benson Shiraz, meaning no additives were added during the growing season or the winemaking process.
- The quality of the fruit really makes this rich red stand out. Fruit-forward, soft tannins and a little bit of oak shows off the winemaker’s dedication to minimal intervention winemaking and excellence in cool climate styles.
- If you're after an undeniably elegant Shiraz that will seduce you with hints of chocolate, then get this gem in your basket quick smart.
Five years ago, Ashley Horner, our talented Hunter Valley winemaker, was selected by Angels to create the first vintage of this wine as a ‘Winemaker Fantasy’ project, and it was eagerly snapped up, scoring rave reviews from Angels. Superb now, delectable down the line - we recommend not limiting yourself to a single bottle!
“It is a GSM, Grenache 45%, Syrah 45%, Mourvedre 10%, so made to drink very well early on,” shares Ash. “It will cellar at least 5-8 years, and is under cork.”
Compared to the last blend, this vintage has a touch more Grenache to raise the sweet cherry notes and violet aromas. “We [also] have a little more Syrah in our blend as we feel the extra tannin from the Syrah helps with the structure and cellaring of the wine,” adds Ash. “The Grenache is quite soft, the Mourvedre provides colour, dark fruit flavours and tannin structure.”
Anyone looking for a wine with body and flavour is on to a winner here! Shiraz as a variety is particularly sensitive to climate in terms of the style it will produce, and it's because of this that Brian likes to grow his red fruit in the northern end of Margaret River. Your cellar will benefit immensely with a few of these pocket-friendly premium wines in stock before the rest of the world catches on to how outstanding Margaret River Shiraz really is!
Shiraz can range from spicy and lifted (for example from Gippsland) to rich and dark (McLaren Vale). Brian's Reserve Shiraz sits right in the middle of this spectrum, with nice spicy fruit, yet with a beautiful medium bodied feel to it all.
Your glass will fill with a deep red and purple in colour, delivering tantalising dark berries with each sip, expressing both oak and fruit beautifully. Some whole bunches were added along the way for their woody stems, giving the wine a textured lift. Enjoy!
Drew Tuckwell’s cool-climate single-vineyard Orange region Syrah is not your average Shiraz. Sourced from a single mature vineyard, the grapes are grown at 630m above sea level allowing optimum ripening for the variety in this region.
This Syrah shows intense aromatic, lifted floral and red berry characters all with a hint of spice. Maturation in a giant 3,000 litre French oak Foudre barrel has created an incredibly fresh, intense, complex and delicious Shiraz. The intensity and textural quality makes it extremely individual and provides a different expression to the classic Australian Shiraz style.
This incredible small batch Orange Syrah was made in tiny amounts. Don’t miss out on your chance to snaffle a few bottles!
