Cracka Review

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.

Winemaker's Notes

Due to its very cool climate, Old Block is typically one of the last Shiraz vineyards to be harvested in Australia. Long and slow ripening contributes to the development of a stunning range of fruit flavours, perfumes, peppers and spices; Old Block delivers highly complex, elegant Shiraz with depth and detail. Cold wet and windy conditions in spring 2013 led to inconsistent fruit set and low yields. Temperatures soared in January with several heat spikes pushing well in to the 40’s before returning to perfectly mild and dry conditions for the remainder of the season. Fruit was able to develop its full range of flavours and complex phenolic structure. The 2014 Langi Shiraz is a fine, elegant and evocative wine with many layers and dimensions that will further reveal with time.

2014 Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2014 Vintage) says
From the Langi Old Block, planted '63, hand-picked, separate ferments of 70% crushed, 20% whole bunches and 10% whole berries, cold soak, cultured yeast, 3 weeks on skins, matured in French oak (35% new) for 16 months. While full-bodied, this has exceptional poise and elegance, reflecting its fastidious vinification. Intense red, purple and black fruits, ripe tannins and cedary oak are members of an orchestra playing Beethoven under the direction of a great conductor.

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
Things have changed gear with the arrival of the 2010 vintage at Langi: there's more elegance, finesse, complex whole bunch-driven character and excitement in the wine. Fragrant red fruits, cherries and berries, lifted perfume and meaty complexity: charcuterie, cassia bark, anise and hints of fennel. The palate's bright red berries and cherries are laced with pepper and framed in toasty fresh oak flavour, some mocha, deep-seated baking spices and impressive freshness as it lifts through the finish; final notes of graphite and dark minerals. This is a spectacular wine in the making.
