Mount Langi Ghiran Nowhere Creek Shiraz

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Nowhere Creek is a single vineyard wine long used by Mt Langi for top-drawer Shiraz. In 2004 a small parcel was carved off and bottled separately such was its superb quality and in 2012 this wine has been bottled exclusively for Cracka, because we abolsutely love the stuff. It is bold and dense full of powerful and spicy blackberry fruit all interwoven with superbly handled tannins. It is great now but from the cracking 2012 vintage it is sure to drink well over the next decade.

Winemaker's Notes

On the Eastern edge of the Grampians region, this North facing site produces consistently big, ripe and fruity shiraz. Naturally low cropping vines present wines with concentration and depth.

Mount Langi Ghiran Nowhere Creek Shiraz

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
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.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Bright, full crimson-purple; the wine exhibits intense red and black fruits, spice, pepper and licorice on its bouquet, and its long, well-balanced palate.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Strong crimson-purple; sweet and spicy plum and cherry fruit aromas fill the bouquet, the medium- to full-bodied palate complex but supple, with quality oak adding to the flavour matrix; while showing its cool origins, is slightly riper than Moyston Hills.

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
Like Moyston Hills, the fruit is dominantly used in Cliff Edge, but a few barrels selected to be bottled separately; a fuller, richer wine than the others in the line-up, but carries its alcohol with nonchalance.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Strong crimson-purple; abundant and seriously rich black fruits run through a velvety palate, spice, tannins and oak providing textural embroidery.

James Halliday (2005 Vintage) says
Strong red-purple; medium-bodied, with multifaceted cherry, blackberry and licorice fruits; more elegant than Moyston . Hills.
