The Mount Lang Ghiran vineyard is truly unique, it’s ‘Old Block’ vineyard producing one of Australia’s most distinctive and distinguished wines, the Langi Shiraz. Our winemakers consider it a privilege to work with the amazing array of fruit delivered from the vines and are inspired to pour their talents into crafting wines that exceed expectations.
The raw elements of soil, climate and vine combine to create this unique vineyard. The weathered granite rockface and sedimentary soils, the cold prevailing winds forming off the Southern Ocean and the vinestock carried to this region by Swiss settlers in the 1800’s, all these elements play a critical role in producing the distinctive flavours of Mount Langi Ghiran wines.
Winemaking at Mount Langi Ghiran has undergone a generational shift into younger hands over the past ten years. This shift sees innovation, fresh ideas, and contemporary insight into the science of wine production. Each generation of winemakers to arrive at Mount Langi Ghiran has built upon foundations laid down by hands before them.
The Old Block at Mount Langi Ghiran, home to the iconic Langi Shiraz, was planted to the Swiss clone Shiraz taken from the 140 year old Nursery Block in Great Western. This unique clone of Shiraz matches effortlessly with the cool climate of the Grampians, producing spicy pepper characteristics for which Mount Langi Ghiran has become renowned.
In 1981, cuttings taken from the Old Block were the seedlings for the now flourishing Cliff Edge Shiraz block, warmly referred to as the ‘Baby Langi’. Mount Langi Ghiran now has 80 hectares under vine, primarily red grapes, with the dominant variety of course, being Shiraz. While 80% of the production is Shiraz, other varieties planted at the estate include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sangiovese and the white varieties: Pinot Gris, Chardonnay and Riesling.
With an impressive portfolio and a passionate team, the winemakers at Mount Langi Ghiran continue to meticulously develop and hone their methods, whilst producing wines that embody the essence of Mount Langi Ghiran.

Mount Langi Ghiran

The vineyards of Mount Langi Ghiran are nestled between two dramatically beautiful mountain ranges on the southern edge of the Great Dividing Range in Western Victoria, 180 km west of Melbourne. Pronounced “Mount Langee Jeeran”, the name is Aboriginal for “Home of the Yellow-Tailed Black Cockatoo”. The initial vineyards were planted by the Fratin brothers in 1963, on the site of a vineyard that had been in operation at the turn of the century. Their first plantings were Shiraz, and initially, the grapes were sold to neighbouring winemakers. The exceptionally high quality of their fruit quickly drew a strong following and encouraged the Fratins to begin making their own wine. In 1979, Trevor Mast was appointed consultant winemaker. Inspired by the potential of the vineyard and keen to develop it further, he purchased the property in 1987. Two partnerships followed, until in late 2002 the property was purchased by the Rathbone family, also proprietors of Yering Station winery in the Yarra Valley. Dan Buckle joined the winemaking team at Mount Langi Ghiran in 2003 and brings to the team not only a great breadth of winemaking experience gained both in Australia and abroad, but skills across a variety of disciplines.

The start of wine production in this region dates back to the 1860s brothers Joseph and Henry Best established a vineyard near Concongella. This is now the jewel in the crown of Best’s Wines. This region is ideally suited to Shiraz – intense berry and black pepper characteristics sometimes accompanied by tinges of eucalyptus. Also noted as particularly good for Riesling. The climate is regarded as cool ‘continental’. The main wine styles: Red – Shiraz; Sparkling; White – Riesling.
