2009 - 2010,
2012 - 2015
Lisa Perrotti-Brown MW has rated these RunRig 97+ to 100 points!
Signature Torbreck opulence at its (Classified) Exceptional best spanning 2009 to 2015. Sourced from 80 to 125-year-old, dry-grown vines on the western ridge of the Barossa, there’s a drop of Viognier to add some elegance, fragrance and a near piano black sheen.
It doesn’t get much better than this – six wines at the vanguard of Australian Chardonnay. Revel in the edginess of Tasmania, the elegance of Yarra Valley, the opulence of Margaret River and a Classified from the Hunter Valley, with high reviewer praise for each example of this single vineyard and reserve Chardonnay Masterclass.
Shiraz Sunbury 2014
Victoria’s Craiglee Shiraz is a no-fuss, long-term achiever, entering the Langton’s Classification in 1996 and quietly maintaining its place in the ‘Excellent’ category ever since. The wine is a classic southern Victorian, cool-climate Shiraz.
Great Western Shiraz
Best’s Bin 0 Shiraz 2016, with a score of 97/100 points, is Huon Hooke’s highest rated of 54 Victorian Shiraz wines from the 2016 vintage. Bin 0 Shiraz is a famous and sought-after label, a true classic, Langton’s Classified since 2005.
This week, we also hosted Lachlan Barber to talk about the incredible wines from Spain’s Comando G. Don’t think of these wines as cleverly-labelled hipster offerings, Comando G are as serious as it gets in the world of new wine. Owing much to Burgundy and the great Ch. Rayas from the home of the world’s greatest Grenache, Châteauneuf-du-Pape, the wines present a textural experience that is particular to wines from the Gredos mountains near Madrid. Are allocation of the Comando G wines is quite limited. A toe in the water, but having tasted it, the team at Langton’s were keen to dive in. Read the full story.
