Mount Langi Ghiran Shiraz has become an international wine icon, reinforced by its appearance alongside Penfolds Grange and Henschke's Mount Eldelston on the cover of Wine Spectator's ‘Pinnacle of Australian Shiraz' story in 1996. Now a well recognised benchmark for cool climate Australian shiraz, it is favorably compared with the northern Rhone "syrah" of Cote Rotie. Trevor Mast, regarded as one of the Australian winemaking pioneers, creates shiraz with finesse without the sacrifice of power.
Voted ‘Best Red Wine' at The 2001 Exhibition of Victorian Winemakers, the 1999 Shiraz is a dark evocative purple with intense perfumes of cracked pepper, spice and brambly blackberry fruits. The palate is equally as intense and complex, with flavors of black fruits, pepper, spice and liquorice all seemlessly balanced by natural acidity and fine tannins.
