It seemed fitting the first bottle of wine I would taste following my completion of chemotherapy should be something he had a hand in. A few years ago I started to collect Wirra Wirra The Angelus with the plan of a "vertical tasting" to celebrate some future birthday ending in a zero.
The Angelus is a blend of cabernet sauvignon grapes from the McLaren Vale and Coonawarra regions of South Australia. My oldest vintage was the 1997 and that was the one we opened.
In keeping with Greg Trott's philosphy.........
Greg Trott's view on back labels is very simple - Never tell someone
what they will taste. For one, taste is very personal and everyone is
different. Secondly, the flavour of wine evolves in bottle over time,
so how can you accurately describe something on a label when it will
.................I won't describe how it tasted but will say it was "so damn good".
The Angelus has been replaced by the Wirra Wirra Cabernet Sauvignon.
