Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2012 (Primo Estate)

Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2012 was a deep ruby coloured wine with black hues. The aroma was very woody and earthy with a hint of black fruits. In the bouquet I found notes of the cigar box, forest floor, toast, some blackberry, spices and black pepper.

In the mouth Joseph Angel Gully Shiraz 2012 was full bodied, powerful and rich. The palate was woody and spicy, also with just a hint of fruit flavours. There were intense spices, strong oaky notes, some earthy aftertaste with a note of ripe blackberry fruit. The tannins were big and ripe. The finish was generous with spices and a hint of liquorice.


“Our Angel Gully vineyard resides on a hill above the township of Clarendon in the McLaren Vale wine region. This wine is an expression of the dry-grown Shiraz vines that have been planted in the shallow rocky soil.” (backlabel)
