Winemaker's Notes

The bouquet is concentrated and slightly spicy, with berry, black currant and cherry fruit aromas. Intensely fragrant, with hints of mint, cedary French oak and berry-fruit bouquet with tobacco/cigar box characteristics. On the palate it is complex, lingering, ripe cherry flavours with excellent length and balance. The wine has deep, fresh, berry fruit flavour typical of McLaren Vale Cabernet, with minty characters from the Coonawarra fruit.

"The Angelus" is traditionally a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon from the Adelaide and Coonawarra regions. Only 980 dozen of the 1998 vintage were produced from the small but high quality parcels of fruit, which are sourced from individual low yielding vineyards.
