Mount Langi Ghiran Red Wines 2010
Mount Langi has an excellent reputation for its flagship reds that embody the Grampians region in Victoria. Thankfully they also turn out a range that is not going to cost the earth and this is referred to as Billi Billi. This Shiraz is such an exciting drink now style of red, that we can’t help but go back for more. Black fruits, licorice and spice alert the senses to what will appear on the palate, and fine tannins support the fruit and spice characters across the mouth. It ends with great length, making it suitable for a dish of gourmet sausages or a veal cutlet.
One of Australia's great cool climate Shiraz, from a pretty amazing site, this minerally, wonderfully complex and layered Shiraz is a consistently well-loved wine on the show circuit and continues to woo critics. The sort of Shiraz that everyone wishes more Australian wineries would make.
The 2010 Cliff Edge shiraz from Langi is a subtly complex young wine that has dark cherry-cola aromas amid a wealth of complex spice - liquorice especially. The palate unfurls red-fruit flavours with plum and cherry - plenty of depth here, but faultlessly elegant and deceptively powerful.
Kneebones is a fresh, fragrant and complex young shiraz from granite sand soils similar to those of the old-vine Langi Block, and offers a good dose of perfume, pepper and sweet eastern spices: cherries, pomegranate and swirling lift that really seduces. The palate bursts bright and fresh, with sweeping, fine tannins that spread concentrated plum-fruit flavour - red fruits here too - all tied neatly together through the finish. Beautiful detail here.
A very composed and welcoming nose of spice-dusted blackberry and plum fruits here, with oak adding in some attractive mocha and cola. The palate launches fresh and even, with fine, silken tannins rolling through an arc of mid-palate fleshy dark-cherry and plum flavour. Good balance and very approachable.
Nowhere Creek is a darker wine in the glass: it's taken from a steep north-facing site on red-shale soil. It has a very different style to the rest of the Langi family: less fragrant, plenty of blue fruits, damson plums too. The palate's dense and ripe, with solid plum flavour, a layer of blueberry, chocolate, muscular tannins and a long pepper-dusted finish.
2013 corresponds to the 50th anniversary of Langi’s old vines, implanted in the granite soils of this inimitable site. The 2010 vintage was a significant one for Langi, a beautifully crafted and understated release with a promising future stretching before it. 80% whole bunch maceration creates a flurry of perfume and exotic spice, with the sappy notes of stalks prominent amidst fragrant pipesmoke and hints of game. An immensely spice-accented Langi, the overlay of whole bunch character plays down the characteristic pepper personality of this site. The palate is nonetheless beautifully controlled, immaculately and finely textured, agile in body and weight. Its tannin texture is beautifull...
Mid crimson; a bright red-fruited and floral bouquet, with a splash of licorice and bracken; the palate is medium-bodied and reveals pure red fruits and lively acidity; the fine-grained tannins and toasty oak linger harmoniously on the finish.
Medium to full purple/red. Not a deep colour, but very bright and beautifully hued. Very complex spicy peppery, meaty and charcuterie, and lightly herbal, stemmy aromas, reflecting complexity of vinification as much as quality of fruit. Oak happily takes a back-seat. Flowers and violets, with a full spice cupboard of aromas and flavours. Lovely wine! Clean as a whistle and lively, refined, superbly balanced and lingering long on the aftertaste. A masterpiece of elegance.
Deep crimson, bright; the lifted savoury perfume of bracken, spice and cold tea is complemented by red and black fruits; the palate reveals firm tannins that are in harmony with the succulent fruit; a savoury and interesting offering.
