Langtons Outstanding category. Another Barossa Shiraz based on very old vines, in this case planted around 1893. Again, no detailed notes but it was lush with velvety tannins. Bottom line delicious.

The rare Aussie wine that "goes upward" on the finish instead of going away. Fantastic stuffing and depth

Exquisite old vine Shiraz. Depth, oak here, yet in tune with the wine.

This old bastard was terrific but not a 96. Terrific jammy Aussie wine but not an over the top fruit bomb either
