LANGMEIL LANGMEIL - Valley Floor Shiraz - 2015

LANGMEIL Valley Floor Shiraz 2015

See the wine detail page

5 Stars

This is a wine that regularly wins plaudits at Cuisine tastings for its ripe, harmonious reflection of the shiraz-friendly warmth of the Barossa Valley floor. This version is typically brambly, with exotic, bayleaf-like scents. In the mouth, rich mocha and red and dark fruit flavours hold sway. The texture is appealingly gentle. Try it with sirloin steak.
