A Cooler Interpretation of Australian Shiraz

Click For Large ViewWhile at the future Veloce in the 1949 complex in Beijing last night, Matt Bahen (pictured below with the muscles you develop playing Australian rules) of the Wine Republic opened a bottle of 2007 Mount Langi Shiraz from the Grampians. 2007 was perhaps not the vintage of the century for many pundits, but this wine was considered by James Halliday (96 points) one of the best of its ilk…and shows why Langton chose it for their short list. I am the first to admit that I have often avoided full-throttle Barossa Shiraz, but this Victorian interpretation is outstanding! I have never made it this far west of Melbourne, but the scenery is said to be as sublime as this wine. Why didn't you bring the magnum, Matt? Comments
