James' Review

A maker of outstanding cool climate peppery Shiraz, crammed with flavour and vinosity, and very good Cabernet Sauvignon. The Shiraz has long pointed the way for cool climate examples of the variety. The business was acquired by the Rathbone family group in 2002,and the marketing integrated with the Yering Station and Xanadu Estate wines, a synergistic mix with no overlap. Wine quality is exemplary. Exports to all major markets.

About this winery

Originally planted in 1870, Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard was replanted by Italian immigrants, the Fratin Brothers, in 1963 captivated by the sentimental notion that it reminded them of home. They planted vines, nut trees and fig trees to create their little piece of Veneto here in Australia. Unable to find any Italian wine varieties they instead planted the local Shiraz vine… and in doing so, created the source of the now iconic Langi Shiraz.

The exceptionally high quality of the Fratin's fruit quickly drew a strong following and in 1981 the brothers appointed Trevor Mast as consultant winemaker. Six years later, Trevor purchased the vineyard. A turning point for Mount Langi Ghiran, Trevor had a vision for a cool-climate Shiraz, before cool—climate was in vogue, and so the Langi Shiraz was just around the corner.

Located in the Grampians region of Victoria, 2 hours West from Melbourne, the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard is one of the most isolated and unique sites in Australian viticulture. The winemaking team there is very fortunate to have great grapes to turn into wines. The Shiraz planted at Langi forms some of the oldest and purest Shiraz clonal material anywhere in the world. This rare fruit perfectly matched with the cool climate of the Grampians and the ancient granitic soil of the vineyard, producing spicy pepper characteristics for which Langi has become renowned.

In October 2014, when Ben Haines was appointed chief winemaker of Mount Langi Ghiran, the team knew his obsession for terroir expression would start a new chapter of progression and exploration in the Mount Langi Ghiran story.
