The majority of Aussie wine is made by a handful of large companies. Angove, however, is one of the country's remaining family cellars with a worldwide reputation for quality and value. This Shiraz Tempranillo shows them at their lush, fruity best.
Angove not only has a great reputation but considerable heritage, too. Their story began with the arrival from Cornwall of Dr William Angove in 1886. As a hobby, he planted vines in Tea Tree Gully near Adelaide, made wine and even mastered distillation. (Angove still makes Australia'sbest known brandy.) The business really took off after his eldest son ,Skipper, studied oenology at Roseworthy, and it is now run by the fourth generation.Far from resting on its laurels, the Angove winery has always moved with the times , and this Shiraz Tempranillo is evidence of the family'smarket leading innovation. The pairing brings fruity Spanish flair to a rich Aussie classic, and makes a tasty glass on its own or alongside roast or grilled meats.
