Mount Langi Ghiran Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Grampians Victoria
Excellent Langtons Classification. A long and extended growing season means that the Mount Langhi property is one of the last blocks to be harvested in Victoria. Also of significance is that only the best berries are carefully picked off the precious old vines. The famous Langhi Ghiran is fermented in traditional open, shallow, concrete tanks, before ageing in a selection of the finest oak barrels. It is the strong synergy between a unique microclime, fastidious viticulture and proficiency at winemaking that can achieve the paragon which is Langi Ghiran.
Langhi Ghiran is selectively hand picked from the iconic Langi Old Block, grown to granitic sand over red clay podzols, established 1963 to the Swiss Clone Shiraz. By hand selecting the choicest grapes from these old vines, the finest parcels can be marked for inclusion. This method leaves a considerable portion of grapes on the vine, but avoids any shriveled or unripened berries. Moreover, this process responds to the natural variation within the vineyard block caused by aspect, warmth and exposure to wind and sunlight. After a course of hand plunging over three weeks skin contact and fermentation completely to dry, Langhi Ghiran is matured in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques.
Vibrant purple with dense purple rim. A complex wine showing blueberry, rapsberry and requisite Langi spice. Delicately perfumed, Langi Ghiran is lifted and with complex spice elements. Medium bodied, tightly wound acid balance with structured tannins which build on the palate. A core of ripe blueberry and raspberry fruits, overlayed by hints of perfumed spice box characters. Tight acidity adds definition and length.
