Set against the dramatic backdrop of two mountain ranges, the vineyard property of Mount Langi Ghiran (Aboriginal for ‘home of the yellow-tailed black cockatoo’) combines state of the art technology with traditional winemaking methods. The governing principle at Mount Langi Ghiran is to preserve the vineyard’s longstanding dedicated commitment to quality by ensuring that cropping yields are kept low and that wines are produced using traditional winemaking practices with minimal intervention.

Growing presence of blue florals and pepper spice. Intense red and black cherry fruits dominate the palate, heightened by the growing presence of blue florals and pepper spice. Chewy tannins, subtle oak and fine acidity achieve amazing length and balance.

Small batches variously open-fermented, plunged, a portion of whole bunches, some pigeage, matured in French oak (20% new) for 15 months. An immaculately balanced and structured wine, effortless in its medium-bodied guise, delivering juicy red fruits, cedar and spice on a bed of feathery tannins. J.S. Bach harpsichord. Rating: 95 Points; Drink by: 2029; Price: $30.00; Date Tasted: March 2016; Alcohol: 13.8%; James Halliday Wine Companion

Beautiful colour and fragrance of red fruits and spice, more accessible than the Langi with ripe fruits pretty spiced oak notes. The anatomy of a medium bodied red, medium weight, elegant length of favour, even fine-grained tannins and spicy blue berry, to finish pepper. The tannins have a mouth watering quality that makes this a food or frolic style. Excellent quality and great value. Rating: 95 Points; Rob Geddes MW, Australian Wine Vintages.

Winemaker Ben Haines whets our appetite for the latest Cliff Edge Shiraz, writing, "The 2014 vintage was warm to mild with lower than average yields. Fruit was small and flavours were intense, highly concentrated and well defined. In their vibrant youth, these wines already display finesse and balance. The shiraz [is] taut and firmly structured." The deep, crimson-rimmed colour, fruity-spicy perfume and sweet, concentrated fruit flavours all gel with the winemaker's notes. It's medium bodied, packs a huge load of juicy, spicy fruit flavours, all layered with fine, savoury tannins. Rating: 94 Points; Chris Shanahan; Fairfax Wine

Recent years have shown us a remarkable wine at price and 2014 delivers us another gift. It's medium weight, peppery and berry fruited in perfume, luxurious in texture but honed with ropes of firm tannin and flavours are embedded with peppery spice. It sits even, very long, restrained in the palate. Such a delicious, fine feeling wine. Rating: 94 Points; Mike Bennie; Wine Business Magazine
