Week in Review 15-09-18
Saturday, September 15, 2018 in Review
Wednesday this week saw the Adelaide launch of Langton's Classification of Australian Wine VII. Still to come, (and come you should!) Perth tomorrow, and Brisbane next Wednesday.
Commonly the wines are poured for you by the men and women who make them, or who own the labels. You rub shoulders with a who's who of Australian wine. You can buy tickets at the door or online until one hour before the events.
But first, an exclusive weekend (vertical six-pack!) release of Peter Lehmann’s flagship, and side trips to the Yarra Valley, eastern and southern France, plus McLaren Vale and the Clare Valley to finish. Phew!
See the full Wines of the Week here.
Peter Lehmann Stonewell Shiraz
Langton’s Classified ‘Outstanding’
Three Vintage Vertical
Newly confirmed in the ‘Outstanding’ tier, Lehmann’s flagship shows no sign of slowing. A great opportunity here to access the current 2013 plus two back vintages.
96 points, James Halliday
95+ points, Campbell Mattinson
94 points, Huon Hooke
97 points, James Halliday
96 points, Campbell Mattinson

Mount Mary Quintet
Langton’s Classified ‘Exceptional’
Six Vintage Vertical
Newly raised to Heritage status within the ‘Exceptional’ category of the new Langton's Classification, Mount Mary Quintet has the longest and most distinguished pedigree of all the great Australian Cabernet-based blends.
Mount Mary Quintet was not produced in 2009 due to smoke taint resulting from the Black Saturday bushfires.
Hecht & Bannier
Côtes de Provence Rosé 2017
H&B has put the soul back into Provençal Rosé. Order now and get some Rosé soul in your fridge, where it will stay fresh and you can access it easily.
Unico Zelo Mixed Six-Packs
One red pack. One white pack. Brendan Carter has a way with Italian grape varieties. Find out what’s happening at the cutting edge of South Australian winemaking.
The work of the Barry brothers, Tom and Sam, continues to impress. This juicy, drinkable red has the benefit of just the right amount of bottle age. Not to mention 95 points from James Halliday and a Gold Medal at the 2017 Clare Valley Wine show.
