About the wine

Plenty to ponder in this trend-setter
  • This wine was grown and harvested from one of Heathcote's most highly regarded vineyards. The yield was meticulously managed to maintain healthy vines and fruit development. Leighton has gone big, including a high proportion of whole berry fruit to create some eye-widening aromas and palate complexity.
  • You'll be thinking "there it is again", as each sip takes you to and fro between fruit and a balanced acid line. Its ruby red colour pairs delightfully with juicy blackberry aromas, leading to a flavour party of plum, blueberries and blackberries. An essential support roll to the fruit core is a savoury, apple like acid presence and a slowly unfolding web of fruit tannin.
  • If your traditional preference is for the bigger Cabernet and Shiraz styles, you're likely to love this! Jump on in to the alternative variety, and you'll be ahead of the curve as more and more Aussie vineyards are reaping the benefits of planting this hardy Southern Italian varietal. Typically, Nero d'Avola from this particular vineyard retails at $30 and above, so Angels have got an incredible exclusive at under $16!

Best before
On a warm day, try serving this gorgeous red slightly chilled. You can happily open it now while young, knowing it is in good shape and ready to drink. Out of curiosity, try cellaring several bottles and open one each 6 months to experience the magic of age.

Serving advice
Give this wine a little time to breath. It's not imperative, however will help to open up the layers and give it more weight.

Food match
Leighton's top recommendation is beef ribs in a white wine vinegar marinade - sooo easy on a charcoal grill or BBQ. Maybe a little fennel, rocket and walnut salad on the side.
