Mt Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz 2015
Colour: Glowing core of red and blue fruit
Nose: The 2015 Langi Shiraz delivers an intense bouquet of red, blue and purple fruits entwined with complex spices and deeply evocative perfume scents.
Palate: Violets, fragrant herbs and black pepper elevate the fruit, and a gentle peatiness brings a savoury freshness to the palate. The structure is ephemeral, fine and intricate; acid and tannin combine seamlessly to set a framework that combines mouth-watering minerality with a silky, sandy tannin.
Langi Shiraz is selectively hand harvested from the iconic “Langi Old Block”, planted in 1963 to what we refer to as “Old Swiss Clone”. Fifteen parcels of fruit were separately harvested across this single block over a period of two weeks to capture and highlight the nuances and distinct attributes of the site.

Originally established in the 1870's, Mount Langi Ghiran is recognized as one of Australia's most distinguised wine producers. Nestled in the Grampians, this cool-climate region is one of the most isolated and unique sites in Australian viticulutre. Practising "sustainable production" for 40 years, Langi believes that sustainable farming principles produce healthier soils, more balanced grapes and therefore better quality wines.
