Week in Review 04-08-18

First up, it was Wynnsday. On the first Wednesday of August every year, Wynns Coonawarra Estate releases their wines for the year. 2018 was a John Riddoch release, arguably the flagship Coonawarra Cabernet, and with a 99 point score from Andrew Caillard MW, this will be a lynchpin vintage in any John Riddoch vertical. The 2016 Black Label, the definitive Coonawarra Cabernet, took home a 98 point score from Mr. Caillard. What a Wynnsday!

On Wednesday evening, Australian eyes turned to Melbourne and the 2019 Wine Companion Awards. This week, we released a few high-scorers and if you can’t find the wines you want online, call your Langton’s Wine Broker or check our auctions pages.

Grenache Mataro Shiraz,
Barossa Valley 2015

2019 Wine Companion Award

“The trio of great Barossa reds (grenache 55%, mataro 25% and shiraz 25%) come together to spend 18 months in seasoned oak before unfurling into a complete, compelling wine - GMS at its best. Light on its feet, with svelte tannins, plenty of substance and depth, though with buoyant flavours of cherries and raspberries, pips and spice, prosciutto and pepper. Glorious.” 
96 points, James Halliday

Circe Utopies Shiraz

Circe Utopies Shiraz,
Grampians 2016

2019 Wine Companion Award

"Dense, deep colour; resplendent with the power and depth of its dark/black fruit flavours, liquorice and spice, oak and tannins wrapped in the folds of the fruit, its balance underwriting a wine with its future measured in decades, not years." 
97 points, James Halliday

De Bortoli The Estate Vineyard Shiraz

De Bortoli
The Estate Vineyard Shiraz,
Yarra Valley 2015

"Hand-picked, wild yeast open-fermented, matured in new and used French oak. Archetypal cool climate, medium-bodied, Shiraz. Its core of red and black cherry fruit has flecks of pepper, liquorice and spice, the tannins smooth and supple, the oak totally integrated. Lovely style." 
96 points, James Halliday

Wynnsday 2018 Releases


Wynnsday 2018 Releases

Wynnsday is the day Wynns release their latest wines. Wynns head winemaker Sue Hodder has excelled, producing the 2015 John Riddoch Cabernet Sauvignon, a wine that Andrew Caillard MW has described as ‘a gorgeously seductive yet refined wine’ and awarded it 99 points. Sue has also achieved something very special with the 2016 ‘Black Label’ Cabernet Sauvignon. Andrew Caillard MW called it ‘a brilliant black label’ giving the wine 98 points. This is a Wynnsday release to remember.

This was a big Wednesday but all attention turns to Saturday the 1st of September in Sydney for the wine event of the year. The Langton’s Classification VII launch will be held at the International Convention Centre in Darling Harbour. Taste over 100+ wines from the new Classification and find out first, who has made the list and where they have placed.
The Classification tastings only come around once every four years to coincide with the new publication. A single advanced copy of our new hardback book has arrived into our office this week and is being held under lock and key. We’re excited! Join in the fun, buy tickets.

Regards,
The Langton's Team
