2012 Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Shiraz (Grampians)

The Mount Langi Cliff Edge is generally a great value Grampians Shiraz, which won’ t set you back the big bucks of the flagship Mount Langi Shiraz. Indeed there have been some big 94-96 scores flying around for this vintage of the Cliff Edge. I’m a fraction more circumspect, but as a wine you can pick up for less than $25 it is undoubtedly great value.
This wine combines great drinkability with plenty of yum factor. It’s just over medium bodied with a lovely mouth perfume that gives the wine a levity and elegance. Underpinning this however, is perfectly ripe fruit. A touch of regional plum but tending more towards berries. Some meatiness, chocolate and pepper adding complexity. This is a wine that will provide very enjoyable Shiraz drinking over the next 5 years and beyond.
