Special Offer: Langton’s Shiraz Collection
From Langton’s, Australia’s fine wine specialist, comes a suite of Australia’s favourite red variety. A trio of the country’s favourite regions and producers arranged exclusively for ACO subscribers. All rated 95 points or above by James Halliday, this fantastic selection features Kilikanoon ‘M’, Atlas 429 and Voyager Estate Shiraz.
Kilikanoon ‘M’ McLaren Vale Shiraz 2009 From a single vineyard, and spent 24 months in French and American oak. Deeply coloured, the bouquet speaks first of its place of origin, the full-bodied palate likewise; is arguably the richest and fullest of the Kilikanoon reserve range. 95 points, James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
Atlas 429 Clare Valley Shiraz 2012: Made from a single batch of estate-grown, hand-picked fruit on the north-eastern ranges of the Clare Valley; small batch winemaking, and with barrel selection laid over the top. Clare Valley Shiraz at its best; deeply coloured, with blackberry, licorice and plum to open proceedings on the long, medium-bodied palate, the magic coming from the cedary/ savoury/ brambly twist on the finish, the aftertaste a lingering fast-forward reprise of the totality of the flavours. 96 points, James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
Voyager Estate Margaret River Shiraz 2011: Vibrant purple-crimson colour introduces a rainbow array of black cherry, blackberry aromas, the palate standing out as New World, mouth-filling and long; the perfectly pitched oak (36% new, mainly French) added a dimension in tandem with ripe, fine-grained tannins. 96 points, James Halliday, winecompanion.com.au
