Mount Langi Billi Billi Pinot Gris
Grampians
Available by the dozen
Pinot Gris vines were first planted at Mount Langi in the early 1990s. With altitudes and climes not dissimilar to the grape's original home in Alsace along the Valley Rhine, Grampians grown Pinot Gris is brimming with the baked pear and cool ripened lychee characters, kernel aromaticness and textural richness which make white Pinot wines so charming and persuasive. A match to bitey cheese and the freshest seafood, Mount Langi drinks magnificently alongside pork with apple dressing.

While the mesoclimes at Mount Langi are only marginal for grape growing, the estate's spectacular setting creates a unique environment that's ideal for producing wines of distinctive character. Neighbouring mountains Langi Ghiran and Cole create a cooling effect as chill winds tumble down and flow through the valley at night. As vintage approaches, the mountains shadow the vineyards before day's end, shortening the effective sunshine hours and prolonging the growing season for extended ripening. Parcels of Pinot Gris are crushed and cold soaked before vinification in controlled fermenters on light solids for two or three weeks. Early bottling preserves the lively fruit character and retains freshness. Alcohol 13.9%
 
Peach yellow hue. Lychee and stonefruit nose, lemon flower, lightly spiced pine nut and citrus pith. A solid palate, fine acid structure in support of creamy fruit flavours, pear and lychee characters dominate, fine acid builds length and contributes structure. Flint and minerality follow all the way to a clean and complex finish. Very food friendly and a superb aperitif wine just on its own.

The Grampians are notorious for drought conditions which take a very firm grip on the vines, giving them a shakedown of any water they might have and concentrating the flavours. Many of the vines are grown to higher altitudes, cold air tumbles down the mountains and chills the fruit throughout the ripening. Harvests of Shiraz exhibiting strong spice and pepper characters are set aside for Billi Billi. Grapes are treated to a cold soak on skins for a fortnight, inoculated to yeast strains Maurivin B and 796 for eight days vinification in traditional open top fermenters, hand plunged and transferred to a selection of new and seasoned French and American oak barriques for a year's maturation. Alcohol 14.2%
 
Deep, dense purple. Blackberry and dark cherry fruits, layered with oriental spice and complex cool climate characters. Palate shows rich plum and dark berry fruit characters alongside some spicy complexity. Terrific depth of flavours are all supported by fine tannins, for a medium bodied Shiraz wine with good length of palate. Smooth from top to bottom, Billi Billi aims to please with generosity of flavour, fine textures and silky mouthfeel.

The vineyards of Mount Langi are underlaid by unique soils rarely found anywhere in Australia. Solid granite has eroded over eons, leaving a granite topsoil over red clay loams, forcing the vines to struggle for their water, intensifying flavour and introducing great complexity. Pinot Gris is harvested, much of it by hand, off mature vines twenty years of age. Fruit is processed without any skin contact time to reduce phenolic uptake, inoculated to yeast type Maurivin 796 and treated to a fortnight of cool vinification on grape solids. Upon completion, a small component is sent to seasoned 228 litre French oak barriques for two months, before assembling into the finished wine. Alcohol 11.0%
 
Pale straw green hue. Pear fruit aromas, guava and exotic spice notes, ginger and hints of jasmine on the bouquet. A solid Pinot Gris, offering lemon sorbet flavours, pear juice and hints of ginger to the fore, a palate of great interest, layers of stonefruit and spiced floral elements, within a texturally rich mouthfeel, resolving on a finish of fine acid and great length.

Mount Langi Ghiran Shiraz
Grampians
Excellent Langtons Classification. A long and extended growing season means that the Mount Langhi property is one of the last blocks to be harvested in Victoria. Also of significance is that only the best berries are carefully picked off the precious old vines. The famous Langhi Ghiran is fermented in traditional open, shallow, concrete tanks, before ageing in a selection of the finest oak barrels.

Langhi Ghiran is selectively hand picked from the iconic Langi Old Block, grown to granitic sand over red clay podzols, established 1963 to the Swiss Clone Shiraz. By hand selecting the choicest grapes from these old vines, the finest parcels can be marked for inclusion. This method leaves a considerable portion of grapes on the vine, but avoids any shriveled or unripened berries. Moreover, this process responds to the natural variation within the vineyard block caused by aspect, warmth and exposure to wind and sunlight. After a course of hand plunging over three weeks skin contact and fermentation completely to dry, Langhi Ghiran is matured in a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques.
 
Vibrant purple with dense purple rim. A complex wine showing blueberry, rapsberry and requisite Langi spice. Delicately perfumed, Langi Ghiran is lifted and with complex spice elements. Medium bodied, tightly wound acid balance with structured tannins which build on the palate. A core of ripe blueberry and raspberry fruits, overlayed by hints of perfumed spice box characters. Tight acidity adds definition and length.

The vineyards of Mount Langi Ghiran are nestled between two dramatically beautiful mountain ranges on the southern edge of the Great Dividing Range in Western Victoria, 180 km west of Melbourne

Pronounced "Mount Langee Jeeran", the name is Aboriginal for "Home of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo". The initial vineyards were planted by the Fratin brothers in 1963, on the site of a vineyard that had been in operation at the turn of the century. Their first plantings were Shiraz, and initially, the grapes were sold to neighbouring winemakers. The exceptionally high quality of their fruit quickly drew a strong following and encouraged the Fratins to begin making their own wine.

Mount Langi

In 1979, Trevor Mast was appointed consultant winemaker. Inspired by the potential of the vineyard and keen to develop it further, he purchased the property in 1987. Two partnerships followed, until in late 2002 the property was purchased by the Rathbone family, also proprietors of Yering Station winery in the Yarra Valley. Trevor Mast remains winemaker at Mount Langi Ghiran, where he utilises traditional non-interventionist winemaking methods.

State-of-the-art winery technology and fastidious vineyard management enable Mount Langi Ghiran to consistently produce wines of the highest quality. The hallmarks of the elegant and supple Mount Langi Ghiran Shiraz are sweet dark fruit, spice and liquorice, accompanied by the unmistakable aromas of cracked pepper. Each vintage, the vineyard and winemaking teams seek to capture the cool climate characters of pepper and spice, while attaining rich, ripe fruit flavours.

While the climate at Mount Langi Ghiran is marginal for grapegrowing, Langi's spectacular setting creates a unique environment ideal for producing wine of distinctive character

The vineyards are situated at the base of the 540 metre cliff face of Mount Langi Ghiran. Directly opposite, approximately three kilometres away is the equally majestic Mount Cole and adjoining state forest. The two mountains create a cooling effect as cold air tumbles down the mountains and flows through the valley at night. During Autumn, the mountain shadows the vineyard before day's end shortening the effective sunshine hours, and thereby extending the growing season.

Derived from ancient Ordovician red clays rich in ironstone, the soils at Langi vary somewhat within the Shiraz block which contributes to the complexity of the wine. The topsoil comprises granitic sands and silts eroded over the years from the Mount. Red clay loams are well known to Australian viticulturists, they provide excellent drainage and impart desirable characteristics for red wine production, such soils occur in the Barossa, Coonawarra, Pyrenees and Grampians regions.

The Shiraz vines at Mount Langi Ghiran, which range up to 40 years in age, are particularly suited to these conditions. It is during the long ripening period that the signature intense spicy, pepper flavours develop, and the excellent sugar-acid structure is preserved. The soil profile enhances the control of the vine's water requirements allowing the vines to naturally stress at critical periods of growth which further concentrates fruit flavour.

The fruit for the Langi Shiraz is carefully selected from the older vines and delivered to winemaker as fully ripened, mature grapes

The vineyard is cane pruned with the arch cane system. This system promotes a more even budburst and an open canopy with fruit spaced evenly throughout. The canopy is vertically shoot positioned to increase fruit and leaf exposure and reduce shading within the canopy.

The extended growing season means that the Langi property is one of the latest blocks to be harvested in Victoria. Nearby Great Western is picked earlier as it is less elevated than Langi and lacks the cooling effects of surrounding mountains, and the neighbouring Pyrenees vineyards situated north of the 'Divide' are also picked earlier.
