On the nose there’s plenty of ripe plum, strawberry, charcuterie, licorice, leather polish and salted dried herbs. The palate is rich and complex, loaded with a blend of red and black fruits, salted licorice, savoury nuances and a fine tannin line finishing soft and supple.
“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
