MOUNT LANGI GHIRAN LANGI SHIRAZ 2018

$210.00

“A Gem.”

“Wonderfully, tumultuously intense yet balanced.”

Hailing from the cooler climate of the Victorian Grampians wine region comes this 2018 shiraz.

Langi Shiraz is a revered benchmark for cool climate Australian Shiraz. From the fruit of old vines planted on our isolated vineyard in 1969, this landmark wine reveals the vibrant synergy between site and variety. The secret of what makes Langi Shiraz great lies in the unique character of the vines. The Langi Old Block shiraz vineyard dips and weaves across the landscape, proffering parcels of fruit of extreme complexity and stunning finesse. Each of these parcels is selectively harvested and then fermented separately to capture their inimitable qualities at their peak.

99 – James Halliday

“… Hand-picked, wild-fermented with 80% whole bunches and 20% whole berries, 2-3 weeks on skins, matured for 18 months in French barriques (18% new), 280 dozen made. Wonderfully, tumultuously intense yet balanced, black licorice and herbal/foresty nuances all in play.”

97 Points – Huon Hooke

“Extremely deep, dark, youthful brooding purple colour. Aromas of blueberry, mulberry and floral notes, extraordinarily fresh and bright, fruit-driven and aromatic. Spicy but not as intensely white-peppery as Langi can often be. It’s not a big-boned or heavy wine but simply very concentrated and tightly compacted, accessible and brilliantly vibrant. Sweet-fruit core. The tannins are very fine and deceptively subtle. Oak is nigh invisible. A gem.”
