2018 Angullong ‘Fossil Hill’ Orange Region Tempranillo

The wines from Angullong are always a pleasure to try.  The ‘alternative’ varieties they have been punching out have been spot on every time, including the whites.  I would even go as far to say they are some of the best I have tried, and consistent…boy are they consistent…consistently excellent quality!  Here is yet another one.

Very inviting on the nose with dark fruits, cherries and a touch of licorice with a herb like character in there too.  It’s young and vibrant on the palate where it’s more dark cherry with a plum like mid palate texture and a nice savoury element as well.  Well played oak and obvious but okay tannins complement the juiciness and deliciousness of the fruit on the very good finish.
