"Very deep, dark, dense red colour with a purple trim. The bouquet is dense again and very oaky, solid and fleshy, chewy. Concentration is not lacking. A big, rich, bold wine that is softening off nicely." Huon Hooke
Rich Aussie Shiraz meets the cherry fruit and savoury finish of Sangiovese.
Joe rates the fruit which came off his Angel Gully Vineyard (the source of the Shiraz component in this wine) as some of the best fruit that he has seen. A blend of 85% Shiraz and 15% Sangiovese, this is a full bodied red with plum, pepper and spice characters. The Sangiovese gives a burst of refreshing cherry fruit and a savoury finish. Spicy and elegant it is a stunning wine that will improve in the bottle for at least 5 years.
A superb full-bodied wine that lives up to everything it says on the tin or, in this case, the AWC website: plum, cherry, pepper and spice. The Italian touch is there by blending the Shiraz with 15% Sangiovese grape. The website says, also, that it can improve for up to five years but it’s wonderful now and I doubt if I can be patient for that long.
Lovely Aussie red which is a perfect wine to go with food. Joe Grillo is a really talented winemaker who never fails to hit the spot. A great value wine.
Made by Primo Estate so it is a pretty safe bet before you even open the bottle. The only downside is its price which I feel is a bit on the high side. Still a great drink though.
We first tasted that fabulous wine on a visit to the Primo Estate when we were on holidays in South Australia in 2018. Immediately attracted to that beautifull wine. Delighted to discover that we can now order it online back home in Scotland thanks to the Australian Wine Centre. That's our Christmas dinner wine sorted. Briliant.
Very good fruit and a fine balance. It will also improve if I can keep it that long
