Producer Note

Established in 1969, Mount Langi Ghiran, the Aboriginal for ‘home of the yellow tailed black cockatoo’, is set amongst the dramatic backdrop of the Great Dividing Range in the Grampians region of Victoria. The first vines were planted on the property in the late 1800s, but it was in 1969, when the Fratin brothers replanted the vineyards, that Mount Langi Ghiran really came into its own. In 1980, the talented and energetic wine consultant Trevor Mast worked with the Fratin brothers raising the quality and six years later he purchased the property. Trevor pioneered the cool-climate style and with that, one of Australia’s most iconic wines the Langi Shiraz, was born. Cultivated sustainably, the estate is a member of Sustainable Wine Growing Australia. In 2018 Adam Louder, previously a cellar hand under Trevor Mast, became Head Winemaker, he crafts iconic wines that are elegant, full of finesse and the epitome of cool-climate Shiraz.


The fruit is predominantly from the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyards in The Grampians, Victoria with a supporting role played by Shiraz growers from Heathcote, Bendigo and Swan Hill. The Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard is located at an elevation of 350 metres above sea level and set between the namesake Mount Langi Ghiran (922m) and Mount Cole (760m). The mountains create a cooling effect as cold air tumbles down and into the valley and the shadow cast shortens the effective sunshine hours in autumn, extending grape ripening and contributing natural acidity and intense fruit flavours. Mountain erosion over time has created a unique profile of granite sands over sedimentary red clay loam. The texture of this soil profile is ideal for moderating the natural vigour of the Shiraz vine and contributes the subtle spicy pepper flavour for which Mount Langi Ghiran has become renowned. These raw elements of climate, soil, and vine combine to create this unique vineyard which is one of the most isolated in Australia. The weathered granite cliff face and sedimentary soils, the cold prevailing winds forming off the Southern Ocean and the historic vine stock all play a critical role in producing the distinctive flavour.


Whole berries were transferred to large concrete and smaller open-top fermenters where plunging or pumping-over occurred three times a day until fermentation was complete. Malolactic conversion occurred mostly in tank with the dry wine racked to used French oak puncheons and barriques where it matured for 12 months.
