Week in Review 14-07-18

It's been another huge week at Langton's! Firstly, we release tickets to our Classification events. This hotly anticipated series of events will launch the Seventh Edition of the Langton's Classification of Australian Wine and showcase the best wines and winemakers in the country.

This week we also released two new vintages from Chris Ringland — the 2013 Dimchurch and the 2009 Hoffmann. We released a selection of mixed cases including a Tasmanian Pinot mix, an interstate Riesling mix and a value McLaren Vale Shiraz mix. We also released a 2004 museum collection and, when that sold out, we released a small number of 2005 museum cases. The aged wine love didn't end there, as we also took a look at the Classified 'Outstanding' 2001 1860 Vines Shiraz from Tahbilk. Seventeen years of bottle-age, and with plenty of time to develop, this right on point to drink now.

The 1860 Vines Shiraz from Tahbilk is one of Australia's most important wines, the pre-phylloxera vines are among the oldest, continuously producing Shiraz vines in the world. As a Classified wine, it is an eligible purchase for our competition in which you could Win an Exceptional Wine Cellar! The prize, worth more than $10,000 includes one of each of the 21 Exceptional wines in the top tier of Langton’s Classification VI, a Vintec Dual-Zone Cooling Cabinet and two VIP passes to a Classification event of your choice in September 2018.

Chris Ringland Hoffmann Shiraz

Hoffmann Shiraz
Barossa Valley 2009

Finally, after a 63 month marathon on 100% new French oak, the 2009 Hoffmann is here. 
“…preceded by the 2010. Low yields and favourable February and March weather produced an exceptionally concentrated wine… It's crammed with vertical strata of telescopic fruit edged with dried herbs and has tremendous palate presence and length. A deep seam of blackcurrant, cassis, red cherry and sloes flexes beneath the surface, while mouth coating, textured, mineral tannins buttress the finish. A monumental wine.”
Sarah Ahmed, Decanter

Museum Mix 2005


Museum Mix 2005

After our sellout 2004 Museum mix earlier in the week (and the demand for more museum stock), our team has produced an incredible follow-up, this time it’s all 2005. Six bottles of Shiraz from Barossa, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and the Pyrenees, this collection of concentrated powerhouses is on point for price and praise. With bottle age in the teens, each of these wine has hit their straps and are all in the middle of their drinking window but by no means near the end.

McLaren Vale Shiraz Value Dozen


McLaren Vale Shiraz Value Dozen

McLaren Vale Shiraz is known for quality and value. We’ve collected a dozen wines – three each from Paxton, d’Arenberg, Richard Hamilton and Pertaringa – to illustrate just that. At considerably less than $20 per bottle (by the dozen), these wines will show more with a little more in time but they are ready to go right now.
