Angove Warboys Vineyard Shiraz 2020


I haven't had the pleasure of tasting an Angove's Warboys Shiraz since 2018 when I reviewed the 2016 vintage. It seems little has changed in that time - it's still a high-quality wine produced from vines planted in the 1920s.

A bigger wine than its Angels Rise sibling, it sees 18 months in French oak.

Tense and built for the long haul, be sure to honour that. This will live long and would easily slot into birth year wine calculations if that is your thing. 

Black and red plums, baked mulberries and blackberries, fine spices are scattered throughout. An ever so faint touch of coffee grounds walks with cured and smoked meats. Red berries build the courage to work their way forward after some time. Drying out ever so subtly, the tannins are a little abrasive now but that will frame its longevity and soften with time. Above all, it is thoroughly enjoyable drinking.

Drink to ten years+
