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.
TASTING NOTES
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.

About the Mount Langi Winery
The vineyards of Mount Langi Ghiran are nestled between two dramatically beautiful mountain ranges on the southern edge of the Great Dividing Range in Western Victoria, 180 km west of Melbourne
Pronounced "Mount Langee Jeeran", the name is Aboriginal for "Home of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo". The initial vineyards were planted by the Fratin brothers in 1963, on the site of a vineyard that had been in operation at the turn of the century. Their first plantings were Shiraz, and initially, the grapes were sold to neighbouring winemakers. The exceptionally high quality of their fruit quickly drew a strong following and encouraged the Fratins to begin making their own wine. Mount Langi»
