Regular readers will know of my fondness for Angels Gate wines, crafted by Aussie, Philip Dowell. This Chard reminded me of Lugana from Lake Garda in Italy – wine with an effortless charm and richness. Special, but also suggesting of the everyday. The first sip delivers the ‘just lovely’ experience that’s perfect for kicking-off most evening, and events. Also sure to be a hit at parties, or for general socializing.
