2021 Talus Shiraz


Nestled in the foothills of the 400-million-year-old granite massif is Mount Langi Ghiran. Over time, the forces of Mother Nature have cast rock fragments to the base of the mountain creating a formation we know as Talus.
The Talus range is an expression of the unique soils at Mount Langi Ghiran, reflecting our intimate knowledge of vine, soil and mountain. The 2021 Talus Shiraz showcases complex tannins and elegant dark fruit as a result of our aged vines and Grampians cool climate.

Professional Reviews

The colour is brilliant and bright with deep crimson hues. The nose offers a lovely combination of cherry and chocolatey dark plums, it’s engaging from the outset. The medium bodied palate is neatly structured with satsuma plum, a little licorice and dark chocolate richness. Seamless oak integration with fine chalky tannins sustains a long finish.
