- I believe that there is no greater translator of terroir than Chardonnay. I think this shows off my style of winemaking perfectly, I just had to share this wine with you.
- Chardonnay grapes and the cost of barrels make it difficult to grow the volumes. When I heard there was an opportunity for a new Chardonnay in Naked Wines’ range I couldn't resist putting this wine together for the Angels. Thank you Angels and Naked for believing in me and helping me fund this awesome Chardonnay.
- Light gold in colour with a green tinge, on the nose there is complex citrus, green apples and pears followed by a light toasty character from the 30% new French Oak. These flavours integrate on a seamless, well balanced palate with a butterscotch, citrus mineral finish.
- Who'da thought it... a big dollop of gutsy Shiraz can be brought to life by a tiny smidgeon of peachy pure Viognier.
- Big, rich, ripe bramble and damson fruit with lashings of oak are given a soft, silky finish by the addition of the Viognier with its hint of white peach acting as the perfect foil to the peppery undertones.
- Angel funding bought the grapes, so it's incredible quality for a very reasonable price... no wonder so many of you would happily buy it again!
Naked legend Hermano Veloso has turned silky-smooth Portuguese red blends into an art form and In Extremis is his latest masterpiece, a mouthwatering combo of home-grown grapes - Castelao and Touriga Nacional - and punchy Syrah that’s overflowing with fruity flavour.
This rich and juicy red tempts you in with aromas of lush cherries, blackberries and a hint of licorice, all of which intensifies in the mouth, with an extra dab of vanilla from oak ageing and a gorgeously lengthy finish.
If you’ve never tried one of Hermano’s wines before, this little stunner is the best place to start. It’s the perfect easy-drinking red to enjoy with cheesy pastas, BBQs, spicy asian food, or simply on its own. Whatever floats your boat.
- The boy met the girl and this is the love child. A product of passion, hard work and bags of enthusiasm.
- Light, zippy and classically fruit laden, this white will have your taste buds dancing for joy. A crowd pleasing all-rounder with or without food.
- A mixed fruit salad of aromas assaults the senses, with punchy fruit flavours of passionfruit, guava and lemon sherbet lingering on the palate.
- The quintessential Australian blend, the grapes for this wine were sourced from premium vineyards in the up-and-coming Langhorne Creek region of South Australia. This area is renowned for producing award-winning, delicious and very drinkable wines. So when an opportunity arose to source these beautiful parcels of fruit, it was seized!
- 2018 will be long remembered for its low yields of high quality grapes which produced a notable collection of graceful, elegant wines. The grapes were harvested at optimal ripeness to ensure no overripe characters crept into the finished product. The style of this wine is fresh, fruit forward and easy drinking - perfect for every day! With a generous, full flavour, the Mechanic Shiraz Cabernet offers layer upon layer of juicy fruit and outstanding length.
- Thank you so much to all the Angels that support us winemakers in doing the thing we love the most - making amazing, unique wines to share! I am so very happy to be bringing you my latest offering of Australian wines from some of my most favourite winegrowing regions. I can’t wait to hear from you all and look forward to your feedback, as what I do would simply not be possible without your support! I hope you enjoy drinking these wines as much as I’ve enjoyed making them. - Hamish Maguire, Winemaker
- It's not just common old Reserva, this is Gran Reserva - and in Spain this actually means something. Only top quality grapes are used - the grapes that have the best fruit, structure and intensity.
- Jorge leaves it to mature slowly, in toasty oak barrels to give it that mellow, smooth, caramel and vanilla flavour. Yum!
- One of our biggest ever sellers and we can absolutely see why. Pour yourself a glass of this belly warmer with big ol’ bowl of steamy stew. Perfection.
- Montagu is a secret, off-the-beaten-path winemakers' paradise, once known for sweet wine and brandy. Reenen Borman is the trailblazing winemaker who uncovered a gold mine of stunning parcels in the underappreciated region. With Angel funding, he's raising the profile of this promising South African region - and Angels can say that they helped put it on the map.
- When Reenen's mate had just finished picking premium Montagu grapes for one of South Africa's iconic wines (which goes for £36 a pop), he set aside a small batch for Reenen. He was blown away by the grapes' quality, grown on rare 30-year-old vines, and decided to make it into something special, just for Angels.
- Reenen took Colombard (a grape typically used for brandy) and showcased it as a solid support act for his fruity Chenin Blanc blend. The result is a mouthwatering explosion of fruit salad flavours wrapped up with a fresh citrus zippiness – a deliciously quaffable taste bud refresher.
- Since Angels rescued Jean-Pascal’s business back in the day, he’s been paying you back with this elegant Cab that's made from the finest grapes in Chile’s Cabernet paradise, the Maule Valley.
- JP's rich and powerful Gran Reserva has enough blackcurrants and berries to fill a fruit pie. It’s refined and elegant, with lovely oaky notes, liquorice and spice. The finish is long, intense and comforting.
- Matured to perfection in JP’s plush French oak barrels, this is definitely a wine to impress your dinner party guests.
- Nina spotted this seriously zesty Chardonnay when she was travelling around Oz and had to nab it all, just for you Angels.
- This wine is fresh and vibrant, packed full of lemon, kaffir lime leaf and melon and just a hint of toasty oak to compliment the citrus.
- Serve with Asian ginger and soy poached chicken salad… or something less fancy but equally delicious like fish and chips.
- For years, Danie and his family have been great at growing top-notch fruit for expensive Stellenbosch designer wineries. But the Steytlers get little credit for it, and were paid a pittance. Now he’s finally turning this fruit into wines of his own.
Not too heavy, not too light, this is a Pinotage with a real presence. Timing the grape harvest is this classy wine’s secret.
Danie gets the balance just right between those early red fruit and cherry notes, and the richer dark fruit flavours. The oak and fruit are all held in perfect balance… yum.
