Winemaking Notes
The 2013 Billi Billi Shiraz is sourced from a selection of premium cool climate vineyards throughout Victoria; predominantly the Grampians including a portion from the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyards; home of the iconic Langi Shiraz. The 2013 vintage was hot and dry, one of the driest on record. Extreme heat spikes in January and February led to advanced ripening, but thankfully the cooler conditions returned in March allowing fruit to develop its full range of flavours and structure. The 2013 Billi Billi Shiraz showcases typical ‘Langi’ spice, complimented by a luscious core of generous fruit.

Billi Billi’s a perennial bargain. It smells of oak, spice, cherries and plums, plus a little of a wet stone character known as petrichor. It’s composed and energetic, with a nice blend between juicy cherries and blackberries and rich, ripe plum flavours. Bright and fresh, there’s just the right amount of tannic grip to go with the wine’s easy flow.
