2019 Langi & Mast Shiraz released

Published on: 1st September 2021

We’re proud to release our 2019 Langi and Mast Shiraz on 1 September. The 2019’s are the first to be completely crafted under Chief Winemaker Adam Louder who has long ties to Mount Langi Ghiran starting his career as a young cellar hand under founding Winemaker Trevor Mast.

“I’ve no doubt these wines are a statement for both Adam and Mount Langi Ghiran. They draw a symbolic line between past and present – honoring the historic foundations of this vineyard and the fruit it produces, expressed as a modern interpretation,” says Damien Sheehan, General Manager and Viticulturist.

 

2019 Langi Shiraz

This release represents 40 years since Langi’s first vintage in 1979. Now in its 21st year of Langton’s classification, our landmark wine we strive to make every year continues to demonstrate the unique terroir of our iconic Old Block Shiraz that thrives in our cool climate.

Entirely hand-picked and fermented separately to capture the quality of fruit at its peak, this Shiraz is a sublime blend of tightly woven dark black and blue fruits supported by velvet tannins. Punctuated by mocha, toast and notes of cinnamon spice.

A very limited release wine, be sure to secure yours now.

2019 Mast Shiraz

Our tribute to one of the most revered pioneers of cool climate Shiraz, the late Trevor Mast. The best fruit outside of our Old Block is selected with House Block 4 continuing to show its pedigree, being one of the coolest blocks of the vineyard and fittingly one of Trevor’s favourites.

The classic cool climate season that was 2019 has resulted in concentration of red fruit flavours: black cherry and blackberry with an earthy savouriness underpinned by mixed spice.

A very limited release wine, be sure to secure yours now.

“For me it’s about making the best possible wine with the stunning fruit that comes off our vineyards. Harnessing those hallmark red and blue fruit characters with underlying spice is what defines our Shiraz over time. The 2019s are showing wonderful complexity of rich dark fruits and mixed spices that will stand the test of time,” says Adam Louder.

2022 Halliday Wine Companion Results

Published on: 13th August 2021

We are proud to present our 2022 Halliday Wine Companion results. We were again awarded a 5 Red Star winery rating along with incredible scores. Congratulations to our dedicated winemaking and viticulture team Adam Louder, Damien Sheehan and Darren Rathbone.

2019 Langi Shiraz – 96 Points

The Swiss clone, planted in 1969 and still on its own roots, is at the heart of this impressive flagship shiraz. It has a deep vein of ripeness of dark plum, aniseed, sage, lifted wood spices and blackberries. Taut across the palate in structure but velvety in flavour, it raises the question of when to drink. The answer: not just now, if possible.

RELEASED 1 SEP – SHOP 2018

2019 Mast Shiraz – 96 Points

Pressed to tank, transferred to oak for mlf and 18 months’ maturation in French barriques (25% new). A vinous ode to the late, great innovative winemaker Trevor Mast, who promoted the kind of cool-climate shiraz we now so enjoy. This is all about the quality of the fruit, the light pepper and swirling spice, anise, wild raspberries, cassis. It moves with precision on the palate, elegant and supple.

RELEASED 1 SEP – SHOP 2018

2019 Talus Cabernet Sauvignon – 95 Points

For those who haven’t as yet discovered the beauty of Grampians cabernet sauvignon, here is an ideal opportunity. A wine of poise and elegance that absorbs 66% new oak. A rich embroidery of flavours, from cassis, bush mint and leafy cabernet characters and licorice through to dusty cacao, nicely interspersed with savoury oak, weaves a wonderful wine.

RELEASED 1 SEP

2019 Cliff Edge Shiraz – 95 Points

A range of clones lend character to the delicious complexity in this wine. You have to wonder about their powerful role. Deep, dense purple. A beautifully elegant expression of concentrated spice, pepper and black-hearted shiraz. Revels in lifted aromatics of violet and woodsy spice, anise and chocolate, with a surge of fine tannins and vanillan oak through to the finish.

Not yet released – SHOP 2018

2020 Billi Billi Pinot Gris – 93 Points

The cool Grampians climate gives pinot gris the drive that it misses in warmer regions. Nashi pear aromas surge out as the glass is swirled and the range of flavours intensify on the palate and finish. Grapefruit zest, nashi pear and minerally acidity coming into play.

SHOP

2020 Cliff Edge Riesling – 92 Points

In keeping with the Cliff Edge style which promotes delicacy, firm acidity and the potential for bottle age. Pretty aromatic spring flowers, grapefruit pith and green apple aromas. Zesty across the palate with a lemon sherbet brightness.

SHOP

2020 Cliff Edge Pinot Gris – 90 Points

All apple and nashi pear, so fresh and brimming with bright acidity and crunch it could almost be taken for a grigio, if you ignore the well-seasoned middle palate and the emerging silky texture.

SHOP

2018 Billi Billi Shiraz – 90 Points

Condenses the beauty of Grampians shiraz into a well-priced wine from the lively blackberry fruits, the scent of bush mint, bay leaf and the focus on ripe, medium-weight features, it’s spot on. A big mouthful of flavour for a tiny price.

Not yet released – SHOP 2017

2019 Hollows Sangiovese – 88 Points

The earthy herbals of the grape variety mix it up with plenty of ripe Grampians sweet red fruit characters to produce a dense, fruit-forward style with just a light touch of savouriness.

99 points | 2018 Langi Shiraz | SHOP

Handpicked, wild-fermented with 80% whole bunches and 20% whole berries, 2-3 weeks on skins, matured for 18 months in French barriques (18% new), 280 dozen made. Wonderfully, tumultuously intense yet balanced; black licorice and herbal/foresty nuances all in play.

96 points | 2018 Mast Shiraz | SHOP

The late Trevor Mast was the founder of Mount Langi Ghiran and for so long its sole winemaker. Many things have changed since then, all good. Open-fermented with 65% whole bunches, 35% whole berries, pressed to French barriques (none new). The absence of new oak has not diminished it in any way, a simple recognition that Trevor Mast’s financial constraints meant little money for oak.

96 points | 2018 Talus Shiraz | SHOP

A blend of some of the best parcels from the Mount Langi Ghiran property; 80% hand-picked, open-fermented with 75% whole berries/25% whole bunches, matured for 18 months in French barriques (25% new), 600 dozen made. If you didn’t know otherwise, you might think red fruits have joined the black, or viognier or raspberries (wild or cultivated).

96 points | 2018 Cliff Edge Shiraz | SHOP

Was 50% hand-picked, 50% machine-harvested (traditional), part whole berry, part crushed, 2 weeks on skins with cultured yeast, 14 months in French barriques (30% new). The Grampians at its most seductive. Medium bodied with supple dark fruits, licorice, spice and soft tannins.

95 points | 2018 Cliff Edge Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot | Not yet released | SHOP 2017

A 79/21% blend, both varieties hand-picked, whole berries in small open fermenters, 3 weeks on skins, matured for 18 months in French barriques (30% new). High quality fruit and attention to detail.

93 points | 2017 Billi Billi Shiraz | SHOP

The fragrant, floral red fruits and spice and pepper on the bouquet are joined by black pepper and licorice on the palate. Hard to resist at this price, very hard. No patience is required, it is ready now.

92 points | Talus Riesling | SHOP

Hand-picked, whole-bunch pressed, two tank ferments with different yeasts fermented to dryness. Pretty wine/lovely al fresco drink, but I expected more.

92 points | 2019 Cliff Edge Riesling | SHOP

From vines planted ’76, 30% hand-picked, 70% machine-harvested, a long, cool fermentation. Just a (deliberate) touch of residual sugar.

91 points | 2019 Cliff Edge Pinot Gris | Sold Out | SHOP 2020

Barrel fermentation in part or whole. A complex wine, both in terms of flavour and texture. It can be (favourably) compared to marsanne if it (marsanne) is similarly treated.

91 points | 2019 Billi Billi Pinot Gris | Sold Out | SHOP 2020

Lively and bright citrus and pear. Fresh as a daisy. Very smart wine.
