Let’s Taste – Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz 2004

I’ve been sitting on this second bottle for a few years now, and thought it was about time to open it. The Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz has one of the best modern pedigrees for shiraz in Australia, and it is richly deserved, as it is one of the most consistent and age-able. Former guest of the podcast Dan Buckle was the winemaker when this 2004 vintage was made, and I was excited to see how it was travelling. Let me know what you think in the comments below!

After studies and experience in viticulture, he discovered that quality doesn’t stop once the grapes are harvested, it continues all the way through to bottling. Postgraduate studies in winemaking lead him on a career path that would include vintage experiences overseas, and eventually led he was appointed chief winemaker at famed Grampians estate, Mount Langi Ghiran.

Let’s Taste – Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz 1998

Back when I was scouring the Langtons auctions for good wine with a bit of age on it, I managed to secure a lot of six bottles of the Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz 1998. This is the last of those six bottles, and I’ve enjoyed all of them to varying levels. This was probably the best of the six, and I was happy to share why. Let me know in the comments what you thought of this tasting, if you’ve had a chance to taste this wine, and what experiences you’ve had with mature Australian shiraz.

Let’s Taste – Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 1998

I opened my last bottle of Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Cabernet Merlot 1998, and showed how best to open an older wine that may have a more fragile cork, in a very gentle way.

The Wine Baptism of Fire competition gives amateur winemakers the chance to discover first-hand what is involved under the tutelage of a respected winemaking mentor, and make their first wine from Mount Langi Ghiran fruit.
