Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Shiraz Case of 6 Bottles 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pretty intense on the nose. An initial blast of floral aromas is backed up by notes of raw wood spice, green olives, black pepper and black currant fruit. This is rich and very well balanced on entry. The acidity and tannins are finely integrated into the fruit which is intense yet shows a sense of coolness. Nice flavors of burnt sugar, maple syrup and cedar accent the blackberry tones, and there’s a nice peachy/apricot tone at the core here. Seems like this might have some Viognier in it? Refined and so well balanced, this extends over a relatively long finish with fine fresh currant and blackberry tones, ending with a touch of wood spice. 91pts

Originally established in the 1870's Mount Langi Ghirans reputation is built on vision, quality and passion. Nestled in the Grampians at the Southern end of the Great Dividing Range, "Langi" is one of Australia's most distinguished wine producers. The vineyards are located in a spectacular setting, at an elevation of 350 metres, situated at the base of the 540 metre cliff face of Mount Langi Ghiran. Directly opposite is the Mount Cole state forest positioning the vineyards within a 30km valley. In 1996 the winery purchased another property on the well protected northern slope of Mount Langi Ghiran which is known as the "Hollows Vineyard". Together with the original vineyards the total area under vine is 225 acres. Read less

Spearmint and eucalyptus notes on the nose which is very interesting. Lighter for a shiraz than usual. An elegance to it with the mint characteristics combined with dark fruit. Freshness on the palate. Really cool. I recommend.
