fallen Angel wines are high quality wines that are not grown on Waiheke.
In creating this range we are recognizing that other regions are more suitable to the growing and making of other varieties i.e. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Otago Pinot Noir.
This range was originally developed for the Stonyridge Vineyard Restaurant, but has become so successful the team decided to make it available to the trade and export market. To achieve the style we want, we have created joint venture relationships with some of New Zealand’s top wine makers, and work with them to produce the outstanding wines that we have designed.
The hallmarks of this range are distinctive varietal characteristics and integrity, low acidity and extremely ripe fruit. These are wines to be loved and enjoyed and yet have the ability to stand up against some of the finest wines in their categories.
Intense garnet hue with aromas of boysenberry, blackberry, mulberry, almond and vanilla. Richly concentrated on the palate with creamy fine tannins that build in the mouth and are lifted by enticing acidity. Lifted fresh berry flavours with a savoury undertone and incredible vibrance that marries beautifully with its prominent frame. This is an “athletic wine” with chiselled beauty that shows incredible details and beautiful layers. Fresh and inviting in its youth, the underlying structure will also reward cellaring.
