LANGTON'S Classic Australian Blend Collection
Shiraz and Cabernet, when brought together, are recognised the world over as the great Australian red wine blend. Enjoy elegance and intensity across the mix with two bottles each from some of Australia's most important producers in this Classic Australian Blend Collection.
In this case there's two bottle each of the following:
Hentley Farm Quintessential Shiraz Cabernet Barossa Valley 2015
Wynns Coonawarra Estate V&A Lane Cabernet Shiraz Coonawarra 2015
Lindemans Limestone Ridge Shiraz Cabernet 2013
'A 60/40% blend, destemmed and crushed, 70% with 35 days on skins, 30% 8 days on skins, matured in French oak (30% new) for 12 months. The blackcurrant/cassis/herb notes of the cabernet unexpectedly come out on top of the blackberry and plum of the shiraz. This medium-bodied wine has been carefully handled in the winery during both the fermentation and maturation phases, emerging with absolutely perfect balance.'

'Deep red/purple colour with a clean, leafy and berry-like aroma, while the palate is medium-bodied and elegantly framed, with mild but present tannins, overall softness and excellent balance. A lovely red wine combining intensity and harmony. It exudes class. 4/9/2017'

'Decidedly curious: the back label is voluminous, but gives no explanation of the Trio (nor does the front label), nor any basic facts (eg the percentage of the blend). The colour is excellent, the bouquet and palate likewise; blackberry, blackcurrant and mulberry are the flavour vectors of the medium to full-bodied palate, although oak also has its say. Lovely wine.'
