Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2013 Vintage) says
It’s in good shape. It offers an attractive serve of cherry-plum fruit flavour and laces it with modest lines of pepper and green herbs. It’s a fruit-driven wine that has turned its hand to savouriness. It’s not a big wine but it’s not too light either; it sits in an easy-to-drink place, without ever feeling overly simple. Good buying.

Mid crimson; a restrained and elegant bouquet, offering black and blue fruits, spice, sage and struck quartz; the palate is medium-bodied and focused, showing lovely depth and a lightness of touch that belies the modest price tag; brilliant everyday drinking.

A singularly impressive entry point for the Langi Ghiran shirazs. Bright, clear red-purple; the scented and fragrant bouquet has a warm spice and pepper introduction to the fleshy red and black cherry fruit of the perfectly balanced medium-bodied palate; the quality of the wine comes through on the lingering finish and aftertaste. Drink whenever you like.

Pleasant blackberry sage and thyme fruit offering great value flavours with length and good balance.

The bright, clear red-purple colour has not changed since first tasted a year ago, nor has the fragrant bouquet; has a warm spice and pepper introduction to the red and black cherry fruit of the perfectly balanced medium-bodied palate; the quality of the wine comes through on the lingering finish and aftertaste. So well balanced it can be drunk now although it will repay 10 years' cellaring, and live for another 10 thereafter.

Highly perfumed red and blue fruit bouquet, with orange and cinnamon playing a pivotal role; the palate is fresh, lovely and lithe, with the spice coming to the fore on the medium-bodied finish.

On the bargain trawl? Buy the lesser labels of the greatest makers. Baby Langi is made like its senior siblings, open fermented and matured in small barrels. This low-yielding vintage has produced a juicy quaffer packed with mixed spice, pepper and rich plum and berry compote.

Excellent hue and clarity; has a compelling mix of spice and licorice overtones to the medium-bodied, supple palate, all components in balance.

Really nice wine. It's excellent value, though we found it tasted a little too awkward, in the way its components combine, to award it higher points. We would have liked to, because it does taste good. Pepper, a bit of chocolate, blueberry, a punnet of sweet raspberries and some vanilla ice-cream. Juicy and sweet with grainy tannins and a little warmth, but heaps of flavour.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Light- to medium-bodied; a spotlessly clean bouquet, with seductively fresh plum, cherry and spice fruit running through to the palate and finish. Bargain. Drink now or in a few years.

Jeremy Oliver (2006 Vintage) says
While it's rather overawed by its assertive presence of meaty, ashtray-like oak, this very peppery and spicy shiraz has the depth, length and structure to age well. Its wild, floral bouquet of dark plums, berries, smoky chocolate oak precedes a charry, briary palate whose slightly currant-like expression of plums and small berries is supported by a fine, dusty spine of grainy tannin, finishing with length of fruit and astringency.

Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2006 Vintage) says
This has become so reliably good that it's almost a no-brainer. It's right in the groove and, unless they've suddenly sold out, should be in your shopping trolley. It tastes of black cherries and mixed spices, and, while it's by no means a blockbuster, it has enough power to keep you satisfied throughout. Tasty, fruity aftertaste. Moderate tannin but enough to direct the traffic of flavours.
