Profile

Mount Langi Ghiran is dedicated to two things: producing top-quality varietal wines and the environment. The emphasis on environmental stewardship propels Mount Langi Ghiran to be an industry leader in sustainable processes. Integrated pest management requires understanding of the pest and its lifecycle, using control methods rather than synthetic chemicals. Canopy management, systematic pruning to encourage air-flow, and the use of Sulphur, a natural product accepted in organic production, is used to protect the vines from mildew.

The Grampians region is cooler and wetter than most other areas within Victoria, further emphasizing the importance of proactive and sustainable viticulturual management. The area is better known for cool-climate Shiraz and sparkling Shiraz than it's white wines. This wine is exclusive to WineCollective, not found anywhere else in Canada! Drink this year or cellar, chilled to 8C.

Look

The colour of pear juice, with light green flecks.

Smell

The Cliff Edge Riesling has flavours of lime and orange zest with kiwi fruit and mineral notes. Lemon blossom and rose aroma add more dimension and complexity.

Taste

Tight, layered and lively with lime and orange zest, kiwi fruit and long, flinty mineral notes underpinned by a deep and pure acidity. Langi’s very cool climate, together with granite sands and minimal irrigation delivers great purity and stunning natural acidity. The Hollows brings beautifully lifted floral and spice aromas, and wonderful texture and generosity to the palate. The Langi Geisenheim clone consistently produces wines with lifted floral and spice aromas complementing the citrus and mineral acidity.

Pairing

Spiced crab cakes are craving to be paired with this Riesling. Opt for a Riesling when your food has a bit of spice, or strong, pungent flavours.
