Angove 2010 Warboys Vineyard Shiraz Grenache

For so long associated with bargain basement labels from the Riverland like Butterfly Ridge and Long Row, the Angove family are spreading their wings after 126 years in the wine business with two new ranges of wines from their McLaren Vale vineyards - where they recently opened an impressive new cellar door facility. From the Warboys Vineyard - which the cellar door overlooks - this is a dark, ripe, inky and mysterious blend of shiraz and grenache but with enough elegance and twists and turns on the palate to make it thoroughly beguiling. A delightful red that pushes the envelope but retains drinkability. $35.
