langtons classification

The Langi Shiraz has proudly retained its ‘Excellent’ rating in the Langton’s Classification VII.

Consistently producing exquisite, elegant wines throughout the late eighties and nineties earned Langi Shiraz it’s first place on the Langton’s Classification II.  Eighteen years on, the Mount Langi Ghiran icon wine continues to rate, this year marking its fifth consecutive Excellent Classification.

“The expressive Langi Shiraz is typified by ethereal blackberry, brambly dark cherry and pepper aromas, supple textures and underlying savoury oak.”

Top vintages of the Langi Shiraz are remarked as 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2010, 2008, 2007, 2006, 2005, 2004, 1999, 1998, 1996, 1995, 1994 and 1992. The Langi Shiraz was not produced in 2016, 2002 or 2001.

Conceived by Stewart Langton and Andrew Caillard MW in 1990, the Classification was created as a way to codify and support the fine wines of Australia. It has since become the definitive guide to Australian fine wine, used as a reference throughout the wine world. Commending pedigree, the Classification reflects the consistency of the best Australian wines over a minimum of 10 vintages rather than a particular vintage.
