St. Helena, Calif. (PRWEB) May 13, 2013
Trinchero Family Estates today announced that together with Angove Family Winemakers, they have launched the first vintage of Dr. Angove, a 2012 Red Blend from South Australia with a suggested retail price of $12.99. 50% Shiraz, 30% Grenache, and 20% Petit Verdot, the red blend, “The Recipe” is a modern take on Dr. Angove’s original red wines. The Angove winemaking story began in 1886 when Dr. William Thomas Angove established a medical practice in the Adelaide foothills in South Australia. Not long after his arrival, Dr. Angove began experimenting with vines and winemaking, initially as a tonic for his patients. He established his own vineyards and by 1903 the Angove vineyard holdings were 100 acres. Dr. Angove continued to practice medicine until his death in 1912. Five generations later, McLaren Vale based Angove Family Winemakers is still a family owned and run business. Dr. Angove, Angove Vineyard Select, Nine Vines, Zibibbo Sparkling Moscato, and the Angove luxury tier which includes Warboys and Medhyk are imported, sold, and marketed in the US by Trinchero Family Estates, the family owned Napa-Valley winery founded in 1948 by the Trinchero Family.
Dr. Angove Tasting Notes:
Brooding deep indigo, this is Australian red wine at its best; following the traditions of Australia’s winemaking pioneers and mixing together grapes of different varieties across South Australia’s most famous regions to produce a homogeneous blend. Spicy Shiraz from Barossa and the Southern Flinders, juicy fruity Grenache from the best old vines in the Riverland, and dark, rich Petit Verdot from the sunny banks of the Murray River, are blended together to create Dr. Angove’s heady and delicious “Recipe.”
