Meet the Winemaker
Born into a respected winemaking family, Angus Wardlaw developed a deep love of grapes and viticulture from an early age, spending time in the presence of Barossa luminaries such as Peter Lehmann, Wolf Blass, Jim Irvine and John Glaetzer, picking fruit and stomping on grapes as a child.
Angus created his first vintage in 2009 in the Barossa Valley. Winemaking has always been part of who he is, with Angus deciding to spend his life creating authentic wines which expressed South Australia.
As Head Winemaker of Millon Estate, Angus has developed a renewed love for the Eden Valley region and believes it’s the future of the Barossa. His attitude towards winemaking is simple and based on years of experience. Angus’ philosophy is to use a minimalist approach, from the vineyard all the way to the glass.
“I constantly endeavour to ensure that I capture the fruit characteristics of the vineyard, and of the variety that I’m making. I wish to encapsulate those characteristics, refine those characteristics, not overpower them with oak or other winemaking influences, but to let the fruit come forward.”
