The Mount Langi property was recognized as ideal for the production of full bodied wines over a century ago. Planted to white wine grapes in the 1990s, it is now home to some of the most eloquent examples of Pinot Gris in Australia. A soundly structured wine of juicy bonbon flavours and fragrantly spiced florals, supported by a supple hint of oak. Mount Langi vineyard's spectacular aspects form a unique amphitheatre, where the cool Grampian climes ripen Pinot Gris grapes fully, to achieve optimal fruit characters and exemplary varietal complexity.
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%
TASTING NOTES
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.

More About Mount Langi Winery
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»
