Angus the Bull was a simple idea that just wouldn't go away, it soon became an obsession. When it finally reached the point where it occupied all his waking moments, Hamish MacGowan finally decided to turn his vision into a reality. The philosophy behind Angus The Bull is to deliver the ultimate beef eater's experience in good red wine, the ideal accompaniment to charred steak and prime roast beef. Cabernet Sauvignon is the fruit of choice, the aim being to construct an immensely satisfying wine of perennial dependability and consistency.
Angus The Bull is a collation of hand selected harvests, essentially Cabernet Sauvignon, chosen on the basis of a synergy to form a whole that is so much greater than the sum of parts. Each year the most promising parcels are fashioned into the ultimate meat eater's cuvée. The flexibility of an eclectic blending approach provides for great consistency from vintage to vintage and allows for the best attributes of individual regions to be combined for exceptional results. Following the harvest, crush and inoculation, vinification is performed in a combination of static and rotary fermenters, followed by oak maturation and assemblage into the essential accompaniement to all things beef.
Intense colour with bright purple hues. Ripe black fruits with rich dark chocolate and vanillin smoky oak aromas. Medium to full bodied palate weight, characterised by dark bramble berry flavours, blue cassis characters and black olive notes, over a length of firm ripe tannins, before a bold, savoury masculine finish.
