Angels V is a limited edition wine carefully crafted from hand selected grapes from our 180 acres of vineyards. Angels V began with five barrels from 5 vintages (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, and 2006) consisting of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Malbec, and Petit Verdot.
This beautiful wine is matured in large, old vats and a portion is siphoned off, bottled by hand, and then topped up with the new vintage, creating a multi-vintage wine going back decades. Angels V represents the winemaking history of Angels Gate from 2002 and tells an important story about our terroir. The wine is intense, complex, and unique.
Our Angels Share Rosé, made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, is on the the drier side, a style that has grown in popularity around the world.
The nose will remind you of fresh red berries at a summer fruit stand, while the palate is crisp with hints of berries and tree fruit. Angels Share Rosé is a perfect companion to salmon, stirfry, roasted pork and chicken.
|Aging Process:||Stainless steel fermented and aged.
What is a GSM? Well, it could be a few different blends if you are in the wine know. Our example is an elegant blend of Gamay, Syrah and Merlot.
The unique combination of these three varietals brings something really special to the party. The Gamay provides a soft, refreshing and fresh red berry note. The Syrah brings structure to the palate as well as a bit of smoke and spice while the Merlot does what Merlot does best and provides a soft and velvety finish.
The GSM is part of our limited addition wines with a production of just 200 cases.
Best paired with grilled meats, light fish or pasta dishes.
|Varietal:||Gamay 66%, Syrah 23%, Merlot 11%
|Aging Method:||Barrel aged in French oak for 18 months|
This is the first vintage of this single vineyard designated wine. The Angels Step vineyard is an immaculate vineyard on the west side of the Beamsville Bench. Its 25 acres are sloped at a gradual step down that perfectly highlights everything that the bench is known for: slope, elevation, rich soil, excellent drainage and airflow.
This Pinot Noir is a very gentle but complex expression of the grape varietal. On the nose it has lots of cherry, earth, cedar and a bit of spice. The palate is medium to full with lots of raspberry and cherry. The acidity is really special giving this wine a refreshing note which would make it perfect for food.
The vinification includes more than 14 months in French oak barrels which offers excellent texture and softer tannins to the palate.
Bin 95, a limited edition wine, has been crafted with hand selected, quality fruit. Made in the appassimento-style, the grapes were dried for 80 days before crushing and fermentation. Three weeks after fermentation, the wine was drained from the skins and current vintage wine was added to the skins for further maturation and extraction. The blend of 65% Cabernet Franc Appassimento and 35% Shiraz enhances the fruit characteristics and produces a wine of exceptional body and complexity.
