Medium to full red-purple; has an archetypal Langi bouquet, offering a mix of spice, black cherry, mint, licorice and leather. The palate has lively, sweet fruit woven through the more minty/spicy characters of the bouquet, but slightly sharp acidity on the finish needs to integrate. Drink to 2009.

Under the direction of winemaker Trevor Mast, Mount Langi Ghiran Shiraz has become one of the top rated shirazes from Victoria.

The vineyards of Mount Langi Ghiran are nestled between two dramatically beautiful mountain ranges on the southern end of the Great Dividing Range in the Grampians region of Western Victoria. The cool climate of Mount Langi Ghiran is unique for growing wine in Australia, and the Shiraz vines like to take their time to ripen and develop their spicy, peppery flavors making Langi one of the last vineyards to be harvested in Victoria. The vines are elevated but also sit between lofty mountains, this creates a cooling effect particularly in Autumn during ripening, as cold air tumbles down the mountains and flows through the valley at night. Another effect of the mountains is the shadowing of the vineyards before days end thus shortening the effective sunshine hours. These climatic effects are unique to Langi and explain why particularly the Shiraz harvest is late, but more importantly they are significant in producing the benchmark characteristics of Langi Shiraz.

Grapes from vines up to 45 plus years are used for the Langi Shiraz. Old vines make the best wine due to vine age and balance – fully established root systems deliver growth that is in balance with the surroundings, and from this fruit with mature tannic structures and depth of flavour. Old vines are more consistent through the seasons. Old vines tend to crop less – the grapes are therefore more expensive to grow.
