Week in Review 30-06-18

On Friday we launched our EOFY Sale. The list is a collection of wines including some previously only offered via our brokerage, end-of-line stocks and a few favourites we thought you’d enjoy. We’ve added more highlights to the sale this morning, click through to see the full collection, or read on below!

There’s been more to this week than a rare Langton’s sale. Though the bottle price of The Lane Block 5 Shiraz certainly continued the theme. One of the best value Shiraz in the country (via James Halliday), it was a hit upon release, and we expect the Block 5 love to continue. 

From a value Australian Shiraz to our premium Argentina portfolio with Familia Zuccardi. If you plan on congratulating Argentina on their rise to the knock-out stages of the World Cup, Malbec should be your toast of choice. But there’s so much more to the premier grape of Argentina, with pioneers like Sebastián Zuccardi making Medozan wines inspired by those of Burgundy. See below for the Concreto, and don’t forget our Win an Exceptional Wine Cellar competition!

Toolangi Pauls Lane Chardonnay

Pauls Lane
Chardonnay 2016

Another masterpiece from Yarra Valley Chardonnay maestro David Bicknell.

It’s a ‘worked’ wine: Complex, spicy, flinty, ‘struck match’ characters that signal a master totally in control of his high-quality raw materials. Taste the cutting edge of Chardonnay (and expect huge scores to come).

Rivetoo Nebbiolo Torbreck DOC

Rivetto Nebbiolo,
Langhe DOC (Cork)

The vineyard from which these grapes are sourced, on top of Lirano Hill, can be found between the villages of Sinio and Serralunga d’Alba on the border of the designated Barolo appellation. Harvest is by hand, before the wine is made using indigenous yeasts and a staggered maceration to impart greater flavour and texture. Full blooded, it’s closer to Cabernet in colour than you might expect from a Barolo neighbour. So very pleasurable to drink.

Zuccardi Concreto Malbec Argentina

Concreto Malbec,
Argentina 2016

"Black core, purple rim. Smokily reductive and all about texture not aroma. Amazing finesse with zero seduction. Really standoffish but paradoxically enticing because it appears to be trying so little to seduce the drinker. And therefore very seductive. Long and so fresh."
17.5 points, Julia Harding MW,

The Lane Vineyard Block 5 Shiraz

The Lane Vineyard
Block 5
Shiraz 2016

"Deep crimson; an estate-grown, medium-bodied shiraz that combines elegance with considerable depth and complexity. Black cherry fruit, spice, pepper and licorice sit comfortably in a chair of oak, tannins providing the seat. The postscript is a dash of cleansing acidity."
95 points, James Halliday

Torbreck The Sporran Shiraz Barossa Valley

The Sporran Shiraz,
Barossa Valley 2015

The 2015 Sporran has lots of raspberry and black cherry flavours, with hints of aniseed, ginger and soy, leading into a powerful and textured finish. It captures the rich, dark aspect of Barossa Shiraz derived from iron-rich soils. ‘It’s a bristling kind of Shiraz’, says Torbreck Chief Winemaker Ian Hongell.

This week we also welcomed Craggy Range Chief Winemaker Matt Stafford to Langton’s HQ. He led our Wine Brokers through a tasting of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and the 2016 Aroha Pinot Noir — a wine Matthew Jukes brilliantly describes as "Very sexy and curvaceous but not at all heavy…" If you want to access or discover the Craggy Range wines, Contact a Broker
