Mount Langi Talus Shiraz 2017

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. JAMES HALLIDAY

An excellent year for Mount Langi was 2017. Adam Louder is now chief winemaker, since a month, and here he is in front of me pouring the wines of Mount Langi. Now chiselled into history. Quite a thing, No nonsense, good bloke, serious, clever, Mount Langi in good hands. MIKE BENNIE

Mount Langi have just released a new wine called ‘Talus’, and I've gotta say it’s pretty damn good. The wine has already got the thumbs up from Huon Hooke. The new addition to the family (Talus) completes the trio of what are some of the country’s finest cool-climate Shirazes, standing confidently alongside ‘Mast’ and ‘Langi’.

Located in the mountainous region of the Grampians, Mount Langi are the kings of cool climate Shiraz in Victoria and former winemaker, Trevor Mast, was one of the first in the country in getting cool-climate Shiraz into gear and securing its future in Australia’s wine industry.

The trio of wines pay respect to the diversity of the soils and altitude on the Ghiran vineyard. It’s quite incredible how distinct these three wines are, really. While the 'Langi' is made using the fruit from the best block on the vineyard and 'Mast' only uses the highest quality single vineyard fruit, 'Talus' explores the union of these blocks, highlighting and emphasising the varying elements that complement each other so beautifully and harmoniously in the finished wine. Winemaker, Adam Louder, has created a wine that showcases the incredible potential that the vineyard has to offer.

The Talus exudes a stunning lifted fragrance and elegance with notes of pepper and spice which is meshed perfectly with a generous acidity and seamless tannins. The wine sits very comfortably between the Cliff Edge Shiraz and the Mast Shiraz. As Huon Hooke states, 'Langi is a great shiraz pitch and Adam Louder has hit another home-run.'
