Week in Review 08-09-18
Saturday, September 08, 2018 in Review
Tired, happy, elated, exhausted - we have had an epic week at Langton's. We opened the Classification VII national tour with an event in Sydney before moving on to Melbourne and Canberra. These events are a showcase of Australia's greatest wines and a chance for wine lovers and collectors to taste those wines and meet the winemakers. There's no other tasting like a Langton’s Classification VII event.

For the team at Langton's, the significance of these events is a little different. They are a celebration. The culmination of four years of auctions, analysis, exploration, discovery and telling the stories of Australia's greatest wines. We often have the pleasure of hosting many of the winemakers on show but never under one roof, these events are something special.
However, the chance to meet our customers and clients face-to-face, to see and share their passion for wine is inspiring for everyone at Langton's. For that, we're very grateful for the opportunity the Classification VII Events present. We'll soon be in Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane for Classification tastings. Buy a ticket, grab a glass, say 'hello' and taste over 100 Classified wines in your nearest city. Four years is a long time to wait for another tasting like the Langton's Classification.

HJ Reserve Shiraz
McLaren Vale 2014
To Corrina Wright, Brioni and Don Oliver and the team at Oliver's Taranga, welcome to Langton's Classification VII.

Ripe, saturated and expressive, it typically shows deep-set blackberry and liquorice aromas. dense chocolatey textures, underlying mocha complexity and mineral length.'

Single Vineyard Shiraz
Barossa Valley 2015
To Dan, the Standish family and the team at The Standish Wine Company, welcome to Langton’s Classification VII.
‘The dry-grown, organically farmed The Standish Single Vineyard Shiraz derives from the western edge of the Barossa Valley. Careful hand selection of fruit and traditional vinification – including foot stomping – is followed by maturation in new (20%) and older French oak. This full-bodied, modern and expressive style is exemplified by intensely concentrated dark fruit flavours, fine chocolatey but vigorous tannins and integrated oak characters.’
