This was a bit closed to start with but really came into its own with a touch of air. Ben Riggs is a consummate performer with the instruments he’s given, and here he’s orchestrated a fine Shiraz that is indicative of Langers.
It’s got spicy brambly fruit, a bit of plum, a tad of licorice, a lick of regional mint and a smidge of vanillin oak. It’s all blackcurrants and leather with an abundance of spice, there’s also a fair whack of alcohol but wears it well as the acids kick in and reveal a long spicy, fruit finish.
