Week in Review 16-03-19
Saturday, March 16, 2019 in Review
It’s the Grange of Cabernet. Penfolds Bin 707 is a benchmark to which all other Australian Cabernet Sauvignon must be measured. Since the 1990 debut of the Langton’s Classification, it has sat at the top tier. ‘Quality here is as clear as a bright blue sky,’ said Campbell Mattinson in his glowing review of the 2015 vintage. We have just 10 magnums of Penfolds Bin 707 2015 magnums available now. Hurry. These will not last the weekend.
Also this week: access rare Henschke (including a bonus bottle), enjoy a Langton’s exclusive Central Otago Pinot and secure 97-point Yangarra Grenache.

A Henschke Trio
Three standout wines from the fabled house of Henschke are united in an exceptional offer. Access the rare Hill of Roses 2012 alongside a desirable Hill of Grace museum release, and enjoy a 94-point Keyneton Euphonium on us.
Misha's Vineyard: Langton's Exclusive
Meet Misha’s Vineyard, available in Australia exclusively through Langton’s. Since 2003, this Central Otago winery has been making world-class wines. With Oliver Masters, formerly of Ata Rangi, as Chief Winemaker, they’re unsurprisingly superb drinking.
Yangarra Old Vine Grenache 2017
A Halliday-certified 97 point wine, earning a place in his Top 100 Wines of 2018. He called it a “glorious example of Grenache.” Made from 70-year-old vines on the celebrated Yangarra Estate, its quality is inarguable.
Thörle Trocken Riesling 2017
Thörle is among the leading producers in Germany’s Rheinhessen. This Riesling is dry, it’s racy and refreshing, and the freshness is neatly balanced with gentle richness. Imported by Langton’s, meet the “new face of German wine” (Jamie Goode) at an exceptional price.
Love fine whisky?
Langton’s will soon be offering a selection of seriously fine and rare whiskies from across the globe. Ensure your access by ticking ‘Whisky’ in your taste preferences today.
New Zealand brought its best to Langton’s HQ this week. The team were lucky enough to savour a tasting of the 2017 Coleraine with Te Mata’s Toby Buck. Jancis Robinson recently deemed it 'a New Zealand national treasure.' We doubt you’d find a single Langton’s broker to disagree. From an NZ icon to a rising star, Misha’s Vineyard co-founder Andy Wilkinson also dropped by to introduce the label’s range, exclusive to Langton’s. We’re particularly loving the Pinot Noirs, which really encapsulate what Central Otago Pinot is all about.
That’s it for another week in wine. Now, head on over to this weekend’s Finders Keepers auction without delay. We’re talking LOW reserves on the likes of a seriously collectible Penfolds bottle, a former James Halliday Wine of the Year winner, and a eye-wateringly big bottle of Mount Mary Quintet. Happy bidding!
