Mount Langi Ghiran Billi Billi Shiraz 2011


Mount Langi Ghiran's "Billi Billi" shiraz is a safe choice at the mid $10s price point, and I have not infrequently found myself buying it by the glass at cafés since it can represent good value.  The lighter 2011 vintage is a medium intensity ruby in colour, with aromatics of green peppercorn, spice, thyme, pepper and some underlying red plum.  The palate is dry with its aromatics carrying through to the palate, with the addition of a generous dose of black pepper and a sprinkling of eucalyptus.  There's a touch of dilution here I think from the vintage, but this wine has typicity and balance and is a good introduction to Grampians region shiraz.  Acceptable to Good
