WINE OF THE WEEK

An­gove’s Fam­ily Crest GSM 2015

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Wine -

THE only rea­son for rec­om­mend­ing any wine would be that it is per­ceived as be­ing amongst the two or three best val­ues in its style, va­ri­ety and price range. Houghton, De Bor­toli and An­gove con­tin­u­ously come up on this ba­sis. In a masked line-up of 17 wines, this An­gove Fam­ily Crest GSM was both the cheap­est and the high­est pointed wine. It typ­i­fies its McLaren Vale base in that it is full, round and of se­ri­ous length, but it is cleaner, fresher and slightly more re­strained than we nor­mally see from that re­gion. Fine, long and classy, it is clean, sound, well made, fresh and lively. The wine is beau­ti­fully bal­anced with real length, lovely fin­ish and af­ter­taste, rea­son­able qual­ity fruit and mod­ern wine­mak­ing. 18.3 points and $22
