Often the last vineyard to be picked at Mount Langi Ghiran, our Cabernet Sauvignon has a long ripening period to produce complex tannin and fruit balance. The 2018 Mount Langi Ghiran Cliff Edge Cabernet Merlot showcases distinct Grampians regional character with classic varietal charm reflective of Langi’s cool climate.

Blackberry and blackcurrant from the Cabernet Sauvignon are complimented by ripe plum and black cherry from the Merlot. This classic Bordeaux blend displays cedary oak, spices and mocha. Fine, silky tannins are carried by our cool climate acidity.

About Mount Langi Ghiran

Established in 1969, Mount Langi Ghiran – Aboriginal for home of the yellow tailed black cockatoo – is set amongst the dramatic backdrop of the Great Dividing Range in the Grampians region of Victoria, producing iconic cool climate wines.

One of the most beautiful vineyards in Australia, Mount Langi Ghiran is set against the backdrop of the rugged granite cliffs and spectacular mountain forests of the Great Dividing Range. The vineyard encapsulates an extraordinary sense of place and produces some of the finest Australian cool climate shiraz.

With 70 hectares under vine, the Mount Langi Ghiran vineyard is truly unique with the ‘Old Block’ producing one of Australia’s most distinctive and distinguished wines, the Langi Shiraz. Predominantly red grapes with Shiraz being the dominant variety, other varieties planted include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese, Barbera, Grenache, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Chardonnay and Viognier.

The raw elements of climate, soil, and vine combine to create this unique vineyard which is one of the most isolated in Australia. The weathered granite cliff face and sedimentary soils, the cold prevailing winds forming off the Southern Ocean and the historic vinestock all play a critical role in producing the distinctive flavours of Mount Langi Ghiran wines.
