The Angove Family’s Angels Rise Vineyard sits high above the small town of Clarendon with an elevation of over 280m above sea level. Whilst still located within the region of McLaren Vale, its climate is quite different due to its elevation and aspect. A cool site and just a stone’s throw from the Adelaide Hills mean it is an exceptional site for producing aromatic white varieties including Pinot Gris.
Fresh Nashi Pear and citrus peel on the nose, followed by crisp linear stone fruit on the palate. The wine finishes clean and mouth-watering, begging the question of a second glass. There isa tense aspect to this wine which speaks of its special origin.
