Great Red From Fortuitous Purchase
Light & Finniss Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2016
Region: Langhorne Creek, SA
The first Light and Finniss was a 2007 Barossa red and there have been dozens since. This beauty is based on a collection of Langhorne Creek reds that Benjmain purchased a few months back. We rate Langhorne Creek Shiraz highly and have been consistent buyers since our start.
The position of Langhorne Creek is very special being next to the lower lakes of the Murray River yet also receives bursts of summer heat which is ideal for Shiraz.
Captain Charles Sturt reached the mouth of the Murray River on 9th February, 1830 and in 1837 Colonel Light began surveying from the other side of the range and it was not till the late 1840s that land around Langhorne Creek was ready for sale.
We find good value wines from this region and purchase of the Light and Finniss is recommended.
