LANGTONS CLASSIFIED “Outstandingâ€?/strong>

Eyes: Dense deep purple, with vibrant youthful hues.

Nose: Dark blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, with hints of chocolate and sweet spice.

Palate: Full bodied, yet elegant. The brilliant 2019 vintage has delivered a timeless and generous Old Bastard. The palate opens with an abundance of bright dark berries and tight chalky tannins with layers of mocha, coffee and chocolate. As always, the wine is completely in balance. The finish is long and firm. Although this wine is drinking well now, the tannins will continue to soften with age.  The gift that keeps on giving.

Body: Full

Grape Variety: Shiraz

Region: Barossa Valley

Growing Conditions: although the 2019 vintage was slightly challenging due to the dry winter followed by a spring frost, the overall quality was excellent.  The dry spring and summer caused smaller bunches and berries, resulting in concentrated and dense flavours in the wine.  Fruit was hand-picked and sourced from Shiraz vines planted in 1893. Matured in 60% new and the remainder in 1 and 2 year old Burgundian barriques. The wine making procedure is a closely guarded secret, with innovative techniques as yet revealed to new world wine. But what we can tell you, is it was harvested by hand at the crack of dawn, when there was enough light shinning through the crystals, looking like an amazing rainbow across the small vineyard.
