Mount Langi Ghiran

Established in the 1960s by the Fratin family, Mount Langi Ghiran is a pioneer in cool-climate Shiraz, located in the remote and rugged Grampian region of Southeastern Australia. Originating from a pre-phylloxera Shiraz clone from the Northern Rhône, the vineyard's early roots were nurtured by viticulturist and winemaker Trevor Mast, who assumed winemaking duties in the 1980s.

Today, the second generation of the Rathbone family continues Mount Langi Ghiran’s legacy as family-owned, crafting wines that exemplify the best of both place and vintage. Nestled in a north-south valley sheltered from the afternoon sun and cooled by icy winds from the Southern Ocean, the estate features towering granite cliffs and loamy red soils.

The unique setting results in an extended ripening season, making it one of the last vineyards harvested in Australia. An optimal environment for cool climate Shiraz, Mount Langi Ghiran is celebrated for its diverse fruit flavors, aromas, elegance, vibrancy, and subtle notes of pepper. The winemaking legacy, initiated by Trevor Mast in the 1980s and 1990s, has evolved under the stewardship of Adam Louder, a Grampian local raised just three miles from the winery.

Working closely with viticulturist Damien Sheehan, who has tended these vines for over 25 years, Adam aims to capture the best of both site and season each vintage, solidifying Mount Langi Ghiran's reputation as a benchmark for cool-climate Australian Shiraz. With 25 years of vineyard oversight, General Manager and Viticulturist Damien Sheehan brings a holistic approach to ensure each vine performs at its best. His deep love for the Mount Langi Ghiran property and dedication to its legacy inspire ongoing enhancements in quality, vine health, and sustainability.

Aligned with Sustainable Winegrowing Australia, the winery passionately promotes biodiversity and strives to minimize its environmental impact. Today, Mount Langi Ghiran stands as a symbol of excellence, rooted in a rich history and a commitment to crafting wines that embody the essence of its remarkable terroir in this special corner of the world
