An Australian exploration of the craft of VS, VSOP and XO since 1925. Dr William Angove established a distillery in Renmark in 1910. His plan was to make a plain spirit for fortifying wine. In 1925, William’s son Carl decided to create a new style of Australian brandy that was lighter and more delicate than anything previously produced. That same year, Carl travelled to Cognac to learn from the world’s best (and bring some of it back to South Australia). His journey became our journey. His passion to do one thing brilliantly became our passion. His ambition to show the world another face of Australian produce excellence became our ambition. His ultimate purpose to create an Australian spirit of iconic world standard and a uniquely Australian expression of brandy became our purpose.
COLOUR Golden amber.
AROMA Citrus and stonefruits open to layers of candied fruits. Some quince jelly and marmalade matched with integrated sweet oak
FLAVOUR The palate shows the candied stonefruits of the nose with an alcohol warmth embraced by fruit intensity, cedary sweey oak and aged rancio character. This is a spirit that shows the balance and harmony achieved when oak and spirit intergrate for over 15 years. AGE Minimum Spirit - 15 years ALCOHOL 40%
REVIEWS AND AWARDS
SA LIFE MAGAZINE—DAVID SLY—DECEMBER 2014 “It’s a drink that has fallen off most people’s radar, yet we forget that some of the best brandy available continues to be made in South Australia, by Angove’s. The standard St Agnes Three Star Brandy - a winning pot still recipe since 1925 - represents great value, but if you want something truly special opt for the St Agnes XO Seven Star Brandy, deeply coloured from a long maturation in oak that gives a pleasing nutty aftertaste.”
SYDNEY MORNING HERALD—HUON HOOKE—07.10.14—95 POINTS “This superbly packaged brandy has deep amber colour and magnifi cent marmalade, old-leather aromas of terrifi c complexity. It’s minimum 20 years old and powerful on the palate, with pleasingly understated oak, signifi cant alcohol warmth on the fi nish and enormous persistence.” AWARDS: International Wine & Spirits Comp. 2015 - Silver ‘Outstanding’ Melbourne Int’l Spirits Competition 2015
