Not available yet to be released January 2018 contact cellar door now to pre-order.
“Matured for 15 months in French hogsheads (80% new). Excellent crimson-purple hue introduces a disciplined Cabernet that makes its varietal point clearly and firmly with blackcurrant, bay leaf and black olive nuances. No fireworks, just Cabernet grown in a perfect spot.”
- Angas Plains Estate Special Reserve Shiraz 2013 95 Points Outstanding $40.00 /btl
“A single 9-tonne batch open-fermented for 8 days with twice daily pump overs, matured in 20% new American oak and 80% used French hogsheads for 15 months, then a barrel selection. If is full-bodied like winemaker Peter Douglas, a gentle giant, and is made in his image.”
- Angas Plains Estate PJs Shiraz 2014 94 Points Special Value $25.00/btl
“16yo vines, matured in 50/50% new and used French hogsheads for 12 months. The softness of the Langhorne Creek fruit hasn’t been compromised, and the wine has elegance and intensity as well, not a common outcome. It really is a lovely wine.”
- Angas Plains Estate PJs Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 93 Points Special Value $25.00 /btl
“Matured for 24 months in ‘specially selected fine French oak barrels’ says the voluminous back label, the winery info 66% used French hogsheads and 33% used American hogsheads. The colour is deep, savoury varietal blackcurrant fruit flowing across the medium-bodied, but long, palate, oak and tannins standing as mute observers on the kerb.”
The results achieved by a number of #Langhorne Creek wineries was outstanding which demonstrates the quality of grapes grown and wine made from our lovely region.
