Punches above it's weight every time!

    • A balanced and elegant wine, this Lodestar treat offers generosity in it's juicy layers and a massive easy-drinking factor. Geoff ensured bold, intense flavours by opting to pick the fruit in the cool of the night.
    • Deep purple in colour, your glass will give off delightful aromas of plum and blackberry with a lick of spice and black olive. The palate is rich and satisfying, bursting with ripe blackcurrant and plum flavours. Fine grained tannins influenced by American and French oak treatment all result in a long lasting finish.
    • This is a proven Angel favourite, with it's huge buy-again rating of 89% from thousands of Angels last vintage. Each slurp you take will be full-bodied, making it a natural choice to enjoy alongside a feed from the bbq. Tuck a few away in your cellar to crack open with those unexpected guests!

Ageing advice
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.

Local 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 and Lodestar Shiraz - perfect!
