Mount Langi Ghiran Langi Shiraz 2000

The 2000 vintage in the Grampians saw a hot summer, and rain in autumn.  Mount Langi handled their top label 2000 "Langi" shiraz very well though judging by this bottle.  It is quite charming aromatically, with notes of pepper and spice.  The palate has resolved plum, dried herb and Christmas cake characters, together with balanced acidity and good length.  Overall, this is a good, perhaps even very good quality wine.  Its attractive dark plum characters carry through to the back palate and its mix of pepper and spice, so typical of shiraz from the Grampians, add regional interest.   Good to Very Good
