Mount Langi Ghiran “The Gap” Vineyard Shiraz 2005

Mount Langi Ghiran The Gap Vineyard Shiraz 2005

The first from a quartet of Langi Shirazes: this wine, the Moyston Hills, the Nowhere Creek and the Cliff Edge. The Gap Vineyard is supposedly a slightly warmer site, and it shows it with aromas of plums and red berries, wood spice, earth, plump fruits, and almost a macerated character. The palate is quite plush, sweet red fruits, cream, and a bit of pencilly oak. There is not a lot of spice or pepper. The length is good and the balance spot on, though I would leave it a couple of years before trying again.
