Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"Angels share refers to the small amount of wine that evaporates from oak barrels during maturation, Medieval winemakers assumed that angels watched over their wines and that they took their share.
The rich and powerful fruits burst out of the gate, setting up the palate. This initial burst creates a wave of juice and long fruits which are slowly reined in by the broad tannins. this wine is a little bit too easy to drink, it announces itself and then gives you a whole hearted effort, the creaminess of the fruit holds the succulent mouthfeel and the tannins have a lovely brightness to the effortless finish. This is a wine that will offer loads of immediate pleasure and will also age for the moderate term under optimal cellaring conditions. Maturation occured in 12% new French oak hogsheads for 14 months, the balance in 1 to 8 year old. After maturation the final blend was lightly fined and unfiltered prior to bottling."
91+/100 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2022 Vintage)
"The 2022 Angel's Share Shiraz is saturated with black cherry, raspberry, licorice and pink peppercorn-rolled pastrami. In the mouth, it is all of this: silky and spicy and concentrated but not heavy. Nicely done."

92/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, November 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Blackberry, plum, earth, sausages and spice. Medium to full-bodied, a bit chewy, some chocolate, dried herbs and black olive, balanced, meaty and gently sweet, with a finish of satisfying length. Delivers the goods. Easy to like."
