Mount Langi Ghiran Talus Shiraz 2017

Talus, for a rock formation under a cliff edge. Ya see! A new wine from Mount Langi. The idea was here to showcase more of the Langi estate. “There’s so much good stuff on the property. This is made up of a big spectrum of blocks, all higher quality stuff”, says freshly-minted chief winemaker Adam Louder (though he’s worked at Langi for a good spell). About 30% new oak, about 30% whole bunch, some carbonic, some destemmed, some foot stomping, some pump overs. Lots going on. Release early September 2018.

Medium weight, elegant, cinched with fine coils of grapey tannin, stretches long but tight through the palate. A very shapely, finely woven wine with deep concentration, freshness, structure and restraint on hand. It feels like a wine for now and for the future. Beautiful flavours and aromas of dark berries, fennel, pepper, faint eucalyptus. So succulent, and generally with a sense of deliciousness on hand. Off the mark quickly; so definitively ‘Langi’. Move quick if you’re into this kind of wine.
