Angoves Brightlands Shiraz 2020


The new flagship for Angove Family Wines, this Brightlands Shiraz is a blend of the best barrels of Shiraz from the Warboys and Angels Rise vineyards. A wine to stash away, it's a cuddle for the insides - just brilliant!
The Angoves story commenced in 1875 at the Brightlands Cellars in the Adelaide Hills. The family's first commercial vintage was in 1893.

The Brightlands brand emerged in the 1940s but was later retired in the 1960s with a brief resurgence in the 2000s.

Mulberries and blueberries consume the fruit profile with char and cured meat highlights flanking the edges. The dense berry fruit drives long with blackberries building some momentum. Earthy with a flicker of licorice, there is a little Cherry Ripe thing going on too. Ribbons of dark chocolate parade with absolute ease. Moroccan spices, earthy spices and woodsy spices all combine to deliver a moreish tingle that keeps you coming back time and again. Gloriously balanced, there is a delicacy and confidence about its stride. Decant well for now but your best bet is to hold - this will live long. Yep, just brilliant!
