Week in Review 25-08-18
Saturday, August 25, 2018 in Review
The word of the week at Langton’s HQ has been ‘Classification’. Next Saturday, the seventh edition of our Classification will be released and the 136 wines and their positions will be revealed. Do not miss out on tickets to the events. And, as if that wasn’t enough, our 2015 Bordeaux wines are here.
Congratulations again to our en primeur buyers who secured their allocations two years ago. Some of the wines have already sold out in a very engaged market and no wonder – 2015 is a stunning vintage!
We also released the latest 2016 Turkey Flat Shiraz. Classified Excellent and sporting their highest ever Halliday rating of 98 points, this classic Australian comes from some of the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. All that at under $50 per bottle.

Château Cos d’Estournel 2me cru classe, St-Estéphe 2015
Very, very Cos. Harmony. Texturally marvellous.
"Super aromas of nutmeg, cloves and dried flowers with plums and blackberries. Subtle yet so complex. Full-bodied, tight and integrated with ultra-fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Lasts for minutes. Very, very Cos. Harmony. Texturally marvellous."
98 points, James Suckling
Sons of Eden
Kennedy GSM 2016
"Grenache introduces raspberry and redcurrant flavours to meaty blackberry, plum and sweet spice. It feels a bit sophisticated, a lot textural, and has the pitch of weight, tannin and acid exactly right. This is an exquisitely crafted red wine. Indeed the word intricate is apt. The Sons of Eden range is in remarkable shape."
94 Points, Campbell Mattinson
Our WIN an Exceptional Cellar Competition has been won!
