Deep red in colour, the nose is distinctly Cabernet-like with mulberry and blackberry fruit and hints of mint backed by French oak, pencil shavings, and wisps of violet. Juicy red berries on the palate are surrounded by velvety tannins, tobacco and spice notes. A long tannin/acid profile to finish is indicative of this wine’s aging potential.
“Almost from the very day I started out as a winemaker I’ve reckoned the fruit grown at the Angas family’s Hutton Vale Farm to be up there with the best I’ve seen in the Barossa. It’s the intensity of flavour you taste in the fruit from these vineyards…the incredible structure…that makes them a stand out.
Being given the chance to put my name to wine from vineyards of this calibre is great. But what takes the whole thing to another level is working with people like the Angas family as we put the word out there about these wines. It’s people like the Angas’ that I think sets the Barossa apart as an extraordinary place.
They, as much as the wine, are such a big part of the personality and the pulse of this region.” Kym Teusner
