Winemaker: Adam Louder
In 1969 an Italian immigrant family, the Fratins, had dreams of creating a little piece of Veneto here in Australia. Along with nut and fruit trees, they planted vines and in doing so, created the now iconic Langi Old Block Shiraz.
It didn’t take long for the Fratins to produce wine under their own label, and in 1981 appointed Trevor Mast as consultant winemaker. Six years later, Trevor purchased the vineyard signifying a turning point for Mount Langi Ghiran. Trevor had a vision for cool climate shiraz before cool climate was in vogue, and so the Langi Shiraz was just around the corner.
Located in the Grampians region of Victoria, Mount Langi Ghiran is one of the most isolated and unique vineyards in Australia. The cool climate, granite soils and historic vines combine to produce wines of distinction, in particular Shiraz with spicy pepper characteristics for which Mount Langi Ghiran is renowned.
