WINE OF THE WEEK: Angus the Bull Cabernet Sauvignon 2005

ONE FOR LUNCH: Hamish MacGowan struck gold when he brought together fruit from over a half-dozen vineyards in Victoria and South Australia to create a wine for one reason: to enjoy with red meat, and which he aptly labelled Angus the Bull. His new-release 2005 (92 per cent Cabernet Sauvignon and the remainder Cabernet Franc, Shiraz and Merlot,) has concentrated ripe-fruit, mint and savoury oak flavours, once again giving him his ideal roasts and BBQ wine; great value at $12 for a 375ml half-bottle, $20 for 750ml.
