2019 Angullong Crossing Reserve ‘Harriet’

I remember watching a documentary about the Bee Gees.  One of the people being interviewed said, “When you have these brothers singing together, it’s like an instrument that no one else can buy.”  If you know the brothers Gibb, I don’t think I need to explain what he meant by this.  Individually, they each had terrific voices but, when they came together, each of the brothers contributed a different tone to whatever it was they were singing, and it was always harmonious, unique and such a pleasure to listen to.

I think it is very similar when different wine varieties get together.  For this wine, the three varieties brought together, Sangiovese, Sagrantino and Montepulciano, do not miss a beat. 

Very attractive and fresh aromas of dark fruits, a little spice and a touch of herbs that are quite the prelude.  The medium bodied palate is quite lively, youthful and smile enhancing.  It’s rich and plentiful without feeling dense or heavy.  Lovely juicy black fruits, dark cherry and plum, a little savoury and herbal like, a touch earthy too, and the tannins aren’t shy but sit nicely as part of the ensemble.  This was very easy to like and guaranteed to attract a good crowd.
