Hamish Macgowan founded the Aberdeen Wine Company in 2003 drawing on his experience mustering cattle at remote stock camps in the northern territory and working with boutique wineries in Victoria. The philosophy behind Angus the Bull was to make the absolute, hands-down perfect accompaniment for a prime piece of beef. Working with premium growers across Central Victoria and hand selecting parcels of Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot grapes. The result is a wine of intense colour with bright purple hues. Aromas of ripe black fruits, rich dark chocolate and subtle vanillin oak. And a full-bodied palate characterised by firm tannins with a savoury, masculine finish. Red meats perfect partner.
“Beef and red wine are made for each other – the fat in a prime piece of juicy steak softens a wine’s astringency and releases those tasty fruit flavours. Problem is, when faced with the choice of which red wine to pick, many people assume you need to be a wine buff to know what's what. The is where Angus The Bull steps in.”
