Passing Clouds was the name co-founders Graeme Leith and Sue Mackinnon gave to their small family owned winery when in 1974 having tirelessly hand planted their central Victorian Bendigo vineyard, were hoping for rain. Rain clouds would come, threaten and pass, and on old gold diggings and a deserted creek bed, they planted Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes.
The 2018 vintage release of Passing Clouds 'The Angel' is deep crimson in colour. Intense aromatics, a broad spectrum of fruits with red black and blue all in there, crushed herbs add complexity along with gamey leathery notes. The palate shows a lovely weight, with beautiful fine, powdery tannins, framed by juicy fruit and soft acidity.
