Angus the Bull was a simple idea that just wouldn't go away, it soon became an obsession. When it finally reached the point where it occupied all his waking moments, Hamish MacGowan finally decided to turn his vision into a reality. The philosophy behind Angus The Bull is to deliver the ultimate beef eater's experience in good red wine, the ideal accompaniment to charred steak and prime roast beef. Cabernet Sauvignon is the fruit of choice, the aim being to construct an immensely satisfying wine of perennial dependability and consistency.
Angus The Bull is a collation of hand selected harvests, essentially Cabernet Sauvignon, chosen on the basis of a synergy to form a whole that is so much greater than the sum of parts. Each year the most promising parcels are fashioned into the ultimate meat eater's cuvée. The flexibility of an eclectic blending approach provides for great consistency from vintage to vintage and allows for the best attributes of individual regions to be combined for exceptional results. Following the harvest, crush and inoculation, vinification is performed in a combination of static and rotary fermenters, followed by oak maturation and assemblage into the essential accompaniement to all things beef.
TASTING NOTES
Intense colour with bright purple hues. Ripe black fruits with rich dark chocolate and vanillin smoky oak aromas. Medium to full bodied palate weight, characterised by dark bramble berry flavours, blue cassis characters and black olive notes, over a length of firm ripe tannins, before a bold, savoury masculine finish.

About the Angus Winery
The philosophy behind Angus The Bull is to create a unique and innovative wine that provides an ideal accompaniment to prime beef
Angus the Bull was a simple idea that just wouldn't go away. It soon became an obsession and then when it reached the point where it occupied all his waking moments, Hamish MacGowan finally decided 'enough was enough' and in 2003 established the Aberdeen Wine Company to turn his unique concept into a reality. With all his energy now focused entirely on creating a new brand positioned to provide the ideal vinous accompaniment to prime beef, he chose to work exclusively with his favourite variety, Cabernet Sauvignon and set about locating the most promising parcels from across Victoria and South Australia. Confident he had achieved the required wine style and developed a very deliberate marketing strategy backed up with some smart packaging, Hamish launched his debut 2002 vintage, and hasn't looked back since.
