Langhorne Creek Shiraz - Alexandrina 2019
5 stars- 93/100, Sam Kim
"It’s splendidly fruited and lifted on the nose showing black/blueberry, violet, cocoa and cedar characters with hints of olive and mixed spice. The palate offers terrific fruit purity and intensity, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and polished tannins. It’s succulent and smooth with a lengthy delicious finish. At its best: now to 2029". AU$25.00. Sam Kim, Wine Judge
We made this wine to highlight the elegance and purity of Shiraz characters that this region generates.
Lake Alexandrina, at the mouth of the mighty Murray River, acts as an air conditioner for winds blowing over the Langhorne Creek winegrowing region. The Southern Ocean winds are cooled as they blow across the lake and provide exceptional growing conditions for structured red varieties, and brings out elegance and power.
Langhorne Creek is a region within the Fleurieu region of South Australia. It is located in the northeast of the Fleurieu Peninsula, stretching from Lake Alexandrina, on its southern fringes, towards the town of Langhorne Creek in the north. It is one of Australia's most historic winegrowing areas, with the oldest established wineries dating back to the mid-19th Century, and some plots of vines that have passed a century in age.
From around 440 hectares (1087 acres) of vineyards in the early 1990s, the planted area has boomed and now approaches 6000ha (14800 acres).
Grapegrowing conditions are unique, in the sense that Langhorne Creek sits on an ancient flood plain created by the Angas and Bremer rivers, swelling with water descending from the Mount Lofty Ranges. Producers developed a system of levees and floodgates to capture and divert a meter of water and nutrient-rich silt over their entire vineyards which remains a major advantage for Langhorne Creek over other South Australian vineyards.
