Wine Dectective, February 2017

Sarah Ahmed, The Wine Detective, likes our 2016 Verdejo

Angelicus Verdejo 2016 (Geographe)

Impressive varietal typicity from a region which, like Rueda, can turn out a good Savvy Blanc, so perhaps no surprises there.  Angelicus’ Verdejo sports tart’n tangy red apple skins, juicy melon and a hint of fennel.  Well done

Decanter, March 2016

Our 2012 Angelicus Garnacha Shiraz Monastrell is getting noticed around the world!

2012 Angelicus Garnacha Shiraz Monastrell

Spice and cherry fruit notes on the nose with a succulent berry fruit palate. Surprisingly grippy with good structure.

Commended 84 points

Angelicus Tempranillo 2014

From a rocky vineyard in the Geographe wine area of Western Australia comes this 99 per cent Tempranillo, one per cent Grenache, wine produced from five clones of Tempranillo brought to Australia from Ribera del Duero and Rioja. Huge flavours of plums, mulberries and dark fruit allied to smooth tannins with overtones of chocolate and spices.

James Halliday Wine Companion, 2016

We're pleased to say that James Halliday once again recognised the quality of Angelicus wines as well as rating us a four star winery.

Angelicus Rosa 2014

Estate-grown Grenache crushed and given 3 days’ cold soak before pressing. A scented, flowery bouquet, then an incisive palate, with red fruits, a twang of citrus pith, a long, crisp finish, and a lingering after taste. A well made and very interesting wine. Screwcap. 13%

Rating 94 To 2016

Angelicus Verdejo 2014

First commercial crop, and a first for WA; mainly fermented in a bees wax-lined amphora purchased at Bunnings, plus 2 barrels, one wild-fermented. An unusual mix of crushed rock minerality, dried herbs and a citrus twang. Great fun for wine nerds at a giveaway price.

Rating 90 To 2017

Wine Front, 2015

September/October 2015
reviewed by Mike Bennie

Angelicus Garnacha 2014

92/100

Has about five percent Tempranillo in it, but that’s just for interest as it’s negligible in its apparent influence.

What can be said is that this is a fuller figured but perfumed red with musky spice, ripe red berry fruitiness, a sniff of ash and some twiggy wood character.

It’s plush, ample and sloshes thick through the palate, delivering a beefed up yet appealing Grenache vibe. 14.8%
