D'Angelo Red Wine tasting notes

Fugiastro Pinot Noir      

(Officer, VIC)

‘Fugiastro’ Pinot Noir has a unique flavour derived from the wild yeast, which is a key element of wild fermentation.  This style of winemaking is a natural process, and has the least amount of interference as possible. Pinot Noir flavours and aromas include roses, fruits, black cherry, berry, and currant.

 

 

Fugiastro Pinot Noir  

(Yarra Valley, VIC)

“Fugiastro translates from Italian to wild, and here you have what many love in pinot noir territory. There are rustic characters, wild forest fruits and wood-char earthiness, perhaps because of indigenous yeast influences and also five years settling into its neatly honed cherry fruit and fleshy palate approach. Lots of fascinating and satisfying wine in here. Rating 4.5 out of 5 stars : A cut above” -

Il Berardino Reserve

Pinot Noir (Officer, VIC) 

The 2010 vintage was characterised by favourable growing conditions, an early start and below average yields, hence this wine is a deep, bright garnet red with a delicate perfumed lift, with complex red and blackberry spectrum, sweet spice and floral notes.  A long fine palate with a strong juicy core of cherry, raspberry and blackberry supported by fine tannins, elegant level of spice, subtle oak and balanced acidity.

 

 

Sab's Shiraz

(Langhorne Creek, SA)

It shows an aroma reminiscent of plums and chocolate with a touch of earthy complexity. The palate is rich and full of black-fruits and has a long soft finish. A wine which could partner a cheese plate equally as well as a rare fillet steak. It is drinking well now but will age gracefully for the remainder of the decade.

Il Padrone Shiraz

(Heathcote, VIC)

Typical Heathcote Shiraz characters, overlaid with a combination of modern French and Australian influences. The deep crimson shiraz exhibits an elegant, balanced plate of ripe red berries, black cherry and mixed spices with some great natural acid backbone. Beautifully drinking now, with sufficient tannin to confer longevity.

Angels Cabernet Sauvignon

(Yarra Valley, VIC)

Seductive varietal blackberry and blackcurrant aromas, with a hint of violets and perfectly complemented by spice and cedar from 20 month new and seasoned French oak barrique maturation.  The palate has rich blackberry and blackcurrant concentrated flavours with a lovely intense lingering finish

 

GTR Cabernet Sauvginon

(Langhorne Creek, SA)

GTR is sourced and made from very old vines in Langhorne Creek.  The fruit from this vineyard is extremely intense and has big tannin structure that will preserve this wine for at least ten years. The wine displays a complex array of mint and blackcurrant aromas along with some cedary oak nuances.
