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.
Picked by both hand and machine. Whole berries were fermented in large open-top concrete fermenters with natural yeasts. Mlf and 14 months' maturation in French barriques (35% new). 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.
