Angove Red Belly Black Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Jeremy Oliver (2009 Vintage) says
Slightly meaty, lightly floral aromas of dark plums, sweet blackberries, raspberries and fresh vanilla/cedar oak precede a generous, moderately juicy palate of medium weight. It's a little simple and minty, but smooth, polished and flavoursome.

Stay with us here. You know the smell of raw sausage meat - the type you buy as a base for homemade sausage rolls? That's what this wine smells like. It has a meaty, peppery character, though here it has some blackberried, fruit notes too. It's not unpleasant, but it is distinctive. Mattinson in particular likes it (but then, he was a sausage roll fiend as a kid). Add aniseed to the mix and you have, in its style, a pretty tasty wine.

A cheerful little red whose slightly earthy, leathery aromas of candied red berries and plums precede a juicy, polished and creamy palate. It lacks great length, but presents spicy red and black fruits and restrained vanilla oak supported by a slightly raw backbone.

There's generosity here, an almost lush easy-drinking quality as rich, concentrated plummy flavours are presented in an approachable style.

Crimson-red; generously built and fruited, with appropriate tannins and a lick of vanilla oak. Honest wine, honest price.

Factor in the price and this is pretty good. It has clear flavours of chocolate and raspberry with toasty, blackberried edges. It's pure enough through the finish and is satisfying in a medium-weight way. We're not raving, but at the right price this is pretty decent.

A terrific follow-up to the impressive 2005 wine thanks, no doubt, to some Wrattonbully fruit that finds its way into the mix. It has very good depth of dark plum and black cherry flavours with a touch of complexity, is succulent and fleshy and finishes supple and long.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
Measured, balanced and easy-drinking. Slightly old-fashioned, with nuances of mint, eucalypt and leather beneath its slightly jammy expression of raspberries, blackberries and dark plums. It's given smoky depth and complexity by a slightly charry extract of coconut and vanilla oak. Smooth and vibrant, it’s silky, pliant and approachable, finishing with nuances of molasses and bitumen.

Loads of oak but also sufficient rich, varietal fruit underneath to carry it.

Rich, full of ripe blackberry and plum; supple mouthfeel; delivers on price.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2002 Vintage) says
A good example of what the region does best: a straightforward quaffing red with decent redcurrant and dark plum flavours, some charry oak and a firmish finish.
