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.

Region: Langhorne Creek
Closure: Screwcap
Alcohol: 14.5%
Source: Sample
Price: $22

Socialise with Wining Pom

This social media thing is a blast, I like a good tweet as much as the next man but facebook is so like last year. However people tell me it’s a really nice way of connecting with an older audience, so lets see how many friends and followers I can make…
