Shiraz Langhorne Creek South Australia
Much of the fruit behind Australia's most memorable wines has hailed from Langhorne Creek, stellar vintages which are commemorated for decades throughout the globe, as the most outstanding efforts in new world Shiraz. These precious old vineyards are productive to this day, yielding finer harvests than ever. The Messrs Glaetzer & Potts have been retaining the best for Gipsie Jack, no two industry identities can be more adroit at treating the pick of Langhorne Creek, to a standard of vinification which defines the penultimate Aussie Shiraz.
Deep scarlet, dark to the core. Spiced nose of black peppercorn, dried cranberry and ripe blue fruits. Full bodied and statuesque, textural and aromatic like a black suede glove, shimmering within a pool of impenetrable black bramble and purple currant fruit reductions, supported by a sterling length of ebony tannins and cossetted in a sheath of polished, showroom oak.
