Product Description

Angoves Long Row Shiraz

Winery: Angoves Wines

Region South Australia

Vintage Year: Current Vintage (Enquiries Welcome)

REGION: South Australia, 2010

VITICULTURE & WINEMAKING:
The grapes for this wine were sourced from Angove vineyards and other specially selected premium growers in the region. Spring rains allowed the vines to develop a healthy canopy, setting up the 2009 Vintage. It was a relatively cool growing season, the exception being a short heatwave in February. The red varieties ripened in a slow and steady manner, allowing to the fruit to develop bright stable colour, a fine tannin structure and excellent varietal aromatic flavour. The resulting wines are deep in colour, rich and varietal.


The grapes were picked at night to make sure that they were as cool as possible. Crushed to modern rotary fermenters the grapes were then allowed to macerate for 2 days before inoculation and fermentation. Pressed off skins 7 days later and allowed to go through the second malolactic fermentation. The wine has then had minimal handling prior
to filtration for bottling on the Angove Family Estate.


Colour This wine is deep red in colour, with some purple hues.

Aroma Ripe berry and plum fruit aromas with notes of spice and pepper dominate the nose.

Palate On the palate rich ripe black berries and plums precede fine soft smooth tannins and a good length of fruit. Some vanillin and toast characters provide a well balanced finish.

This Shiraz is the perfect accompaniment to your favourite steak or pasta dish.

Reviews

Quaff 2011 - Peter Forrestal
The Best Wines in Australia Under $15 - Pretty Good

"A Riverland favourite that is soft, round and fleshy, with some firmness to finish."

 

Village Voice Balmain - Paul Martinez - Sept 2010

"We are always on the lookout for well-priced wines that deliver where it counts (ie: flavour and style) and we believe we’ve found it with the 2008 Angove’s Long Row Shiraz.  It’s soft and supple with just enough bite to make it interesting.  Four-star rating and an 88 out of 100 from James Haliday.  Five-star and a 90 out of 100 from the Little Red Wine Book.  Great, honest, everyday drinking.”


Fine Wine Club - Barry Weinman - July 2010 - 17 Points

“Quite dense and closed.  Super winemaking to this with a silky mouth-feel that borders on seamless.  Builds intensity on the finish and there is real length.  Stunning value.”

Western Suburbs Weekly - John Jens - 06.07.10 - 18 Points

“The fruit is light, dry, spicy, dense and long.  The length of the succulent and appealing fruit-driven flavours becomes more apparent with the second and third tastes.  The tannins are fine and the fruit is delicious.”

The Big Red Wine Book - Campbell Mattinson and Gary Walsh - 2010/11 Edition
5 Stars - 90 Points

'Angove won a couple of major awards in last year's edition of The Big Red Wine Book, and judging by this wine...the fine form continues. Really good. It sure has deliciousness down pat. It tastes of blackberries and toasty oak, wood spice and raspberries. Smooth across the tongue and fresh through the finish.'
