Awards & Reviews from previous vintages

2016 Vintage:

Gold Medal, Class 7, 2016 NSW Wine Awards

Newcastle Herald, John Lewis, Feb 2017:  "From cool-climate Orange, the Angullong 2016 Pinot Grigio is pale straw, has honeysuckle scents and zips onto the front palate with spicy gooseberry flavour. Pear, lime zest and mineral characters show on the middle palate and the finish displays steely acid. DRINK WITH: spring rolls. AGEING: two years. RATING: 4 Stars."

It is long and lean with a nice balance of citrus and tropical fruit salad flavours and finishes with brisk, attention-grabbing acid. There is no winemaking artifice here; it is unoaked, clean and ready enjoy. A wine for sipping chilled on the back porch, or perhaps paired with salads and picnics... more"

Q Wine, Sept 2016: "Two new releases from Angullong and the target is hit again. Another beaut buy for $20. Lots of fresh pears and apples and some tart lemon here. There's what appears to be a creaminess through the mid palate but it's certainly not from oak - this was made in stainless steel. 

An ever so soft sprinkle of spice chips away at the end, but the clean, crisp and well balanced delivery can't be denied. A great drink all up - here's cheers to Spring!"
