The 2009 is an entirely estate grown on the eastern granite slopes of Mount Langi Ghiran. The wine includes a significant whole bunch maceration component, building on the perfumes and delicate aromatics. The 2009 Cliff Edge Shiraz is showing terrific fruit intensity, fruit flavours, complex spice and balanced tannins. With an excellent balance of finesse and depth, this wine is pointing the way for Cliff Edge Shiraz in terms of finely structured palate and fruit intensity.
Deep purple with dense hue, dark cherry, blueberry, perfume and hints of roasted coffee with background mixed spice characters.Cinnamon, nutmeg, anise and floral notes with pepperinterwoven with berry fruits. Bright fine grained tannins supporting blueberry fruit characters with underlying spice and savourycomplexity. Length of palate and flavour is supported by subtle acidity.
“It’s beautifully precise and clean but there’s lots of spicy, whole bunch-y action going on here too. It will no doubt be better again in a few year’s time. It seems light at first, and tannic – a pinot noir lover’s version of shiraz – but with air sweet, stalky blueberry and dark cherried fruit rises to the occasion. Decant it, or cellar it; don’t just pop and go. Fruity, peppery length. The deliciousness is in the detail.” – 93+ Points Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front.
This is the second vintage of Mount Langi Ghiran’s popular Cliff Edge shiraz sourced entirely from estate-grown fruit, some of it from the estate’s oldest vines. Like the 2008 before it – perhaps more so – the 2009 is as sexy as shiraz gets at the price – beautifully, sweetly aromatic with a vibrant, fruity palate to match. A spicy, savoury flavour undercurrent and silky tannins make it the complete red for early drinking – though the flavour intensity and layers of tannin mean good short to medium-term cellaring. Chris Shanahan
Bright crimson; a fragrant bouquet encompasses spice, plum, black cherry and blackberry aromas that flow through to the medium-bodied palate, there picked up quality oak, and finishing with polished tannins. Great bargain. 96 points James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion
