The Mount Langi Ghiran Mast Shiraz was introduced in 2012 to honour the legacy of Trevor Mast – one of the industry’s great pioneers of cool climate winemaking and the first Winemaker at Mount Langi Ghiran. The Mast Shiraz provides an opportunity to feature parcels from the Langi property that capture the berry-fruits, pepper and spice typical from cool climate, Grampians Shiraz.

The 2015 Mast Shiraz has been carefully cellared to share with you as a special tribute for a limited time only. This wine reflects season and site in equal measure; an elegant wine with poise.

Dark ruby.

The bouquet is extremely expressive, with pepper and French oak joining hands with the polished, glossy black cherry fruit and black pepper. French oak is of greater importance for this wine than for either if its siblings. What a magnificent trio of wines.
Review
A tribute to long-serving winemaker, the late Trevor Mast, this shiraz comes from a single block of vines on a steep, cold part of the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard. The resulting wine is distinctive and different from the flagship Langi Shiraz. It has an intensely peppery, smoky, ashy, red cherry bouquet with a hint of root vegetables as a consequence of stem inclusion. It’s medium-bodied, sinewy and finely shaped with light, soft tannins. It drinks well young and will cellar for 20 years.
