Expert Reviews

“Looking for a terrific wine to enjoy with a steak or a hamburger? The perfect partner for a barbeque? Look no further. This is a deliciously slurpable red with plenty of flavour. It’s rich and powerful without being over the top. Great value for under $20.” - Wine with Winsor Dobson, 5th Dec 2008.

“It took just five vintages for Angus the Bull to make its mark as the wine of choice of many a red-blooded Aussie carnivore. A gutsy red with intense dark fruit, chocolate and vanillin flavours and gorgeous savoury oak – a wine to take by the horns.” - Wine with David Ellis, 8th Dec 2008

“I’ve always been a fan of both the wine and the concept. The standard has been remarkably consistent each year too. It tastes dusty and blackcurranty and tannic, the finish minerally and dry. It’s a medium-bodied, chewy wine with gravely tannins and the odd violetty note - it’s all round good value, and drinking.” - The Wine Front, Campbell Mattinson, 5th Nov 2008

“Hamish MacGowan’s cabernet is an interesting creation. The concept was to produce a varietal wine specifically geared to accompany prime beef. I reckon the project works well and the wine shows typical black berry flavour with traces of dark chocolate and charry wood.” - Herald Sun, Paddy Kendler, 30th Dec 2008
