Growing Conditions
2015 provided near perfect conditions for grape growing. After some January rain and unseasonably mild temperatures throughout January and February, the cooler temperatures continued throughout March and April contributing to long, slow and steady ripening. Despite the unusually cool summer, sugar accumulation commenced relatively early and continued steadily until the end of April delivering fruit with wonderful natural acidity, fine and complex structure and stunning aromatic range.

Tasting Notes

Colour
Glowing core of red and blue fruit
Nose
The 2015 Langi Shiraz delivers an intense bouquet of red, blue and purple fruits entwined with complex spices and deeply evocative perfume scents.
Palate
Violets, fragrant herbs and black pepper elevate the fruit, and a gentle peatiness brings a savoury freshness to the palate. The structure is ephemeral, fine and intricate; acid and tannin combine seamlessly to set a framework that combines mouth-watering minerality with a silky, sandy tannin.

Winemaking Notes
Langi Shiraz is selectively hand harvested from the iconic “Langi Old Block”, planted in 1963 to what we refer to as “Old Swiss Clone”. Fifteen parcels of fruit were separately harvested across this single block over a period of two weeks to capture and highlight the nuances and distinct attributes of the site. Due to its very cool climate, Old Block is typically one of the last shiraz vineyards to be harvested in Australia; a long, slow ripening contributes to the development of a stunning range of fruit flavours, perfumes, peppers and spices; Old Block delivers highly complex, graceful shiraz with distinction and detail.

The supremely fragrant bouquet has a platform of black fruits so tightly laced with charcuterie, licorice, spice and black pepper that you can’t break free until you reach the mouth-watering, medium-bodied palate of exceptional length and balance. The mouthfeel is of silk with a velvet rim, radiating red and black cherry fruits with a drumbeat of flavours matching those of the bouquet.

You will have to wait until November for this wine to arrive, but the wait will be worth it because this is a tour de force from this legendary estate. Everything about this wine is awe-inspiring. From the ground up and in fact this tasting note focusses on the ground down, if you get my drift. It is patently clear that this wine is utterly incredible, but it’s not the fruit which concerns me, but the strata beneath this vineyard. This wine tastes like the most wondrous soil imaginable, moistened by grape juice as opposed to grape juice with a smattering of earthly notes on board. It is formidable, rock solid, iron-rich and authoritative. It uses the grape to send its subterranean message to us all and I expect it is saying respect what you have got. Langi Shiraz is a messenger and when you taste this wine you will be sure to hear what it is saying

I tasted this in some pretty elite wine company and it looked smashingly good. It’s a Straight To The Pool Room wine. We know the flavours. Black pepper, black cherries edging into plum, deli meat, roasted nuts and herbs. Quality, saucy oak is smeared more or less lightly throughout. It feels fine and detailed but it also feels powerful and deep. It feels fresh. The ripple of tannin though; here’s where the pulse lifts. Spice-shot, firm but not wrenching, the squeeze slowly but surely applied from the mid-palate onwards. It all presents quite perfectly. A stellar wine.
