    When small amounts of wine disappeared from their oak barrels medieval winemakers just assumed it was angels from above taking their cut. It was about the same time everyone thought the world was flat – science wasn’t a strong topic back in the middle ages!

    That small amount wasn’t anything to do with thieving angels, it was evaporation from the oak barrels during the maturation process (which is why it’s known as the “Angel’s share”).

    It’s a hard wine to deny. It slips straight into the drinking zone and yet it has the overall structure to see it mature well over the medium term, if not longer” says Campbell Mattinson from the WineFront publication, scoring this 2017 release 92/100.

    It’s a medium to full bodied McLaren Vale Shiraz with loads of rich, concentrated dark fruit flavours and a touch of spice. Good to go now but this has plenty of potential for cellaring for another 10-15 years!
