Week in Review 12-01-19

Our end-of-year Top Six has once again been a hit. Each wine has made the cut thanks to a combination of undoubted quality and unquestionable value. After a long debate, the 2016 Turkey Flat, the Classified ‘Excellent’ quintessential Barossa Shiraz, took the top spot.

This week we’ve also looked at a selection of French Rosés. All from Provence, all showing that classic Côte d’Azur style that makes Côtes de Provence Rosé a summer essential for so many Langton’s customers. We also took another look 2017 Pierro. If Leeuwin Art Series is the Margaret River Chardonnay ace, then Pierro is the king. It is the only Classified Outstanding Margaret River Chardonnay.
