Angove Family Crest Shiraz 2014

This shot down two other Shiraz releases in a blind tasting which were twice the price. I was interested to read the press release after tasting only to learn the 2013 was sold out due to significant success at various national and international shows.

Wild yeast fermented and ten months in French and American oak has delivered a wine with some sweet blackberry fruit that is spread generously. Some of the fruit came from Angove's famed Warboys vineyard. It's soft and appears endless leading to a super long length. The fruit is just juicy and moreish. Chocolate sweeps through adding another layer of deliciousness. A day on and some spice and black pepper start to poke through but the lively fruit is the winner for me.

I reckon I could share a bottle which would disappear in no time. The price is ridiculously reasonable too. Worth hunting down.

Very good.
