Albion Hills Langhorne Creek Shiraz 2016
Region: Langhorne Creek
The first Albion Hills was a 2011 Cabernet from Langhorne Creek, developed from a special wine parcel we purchased. We offer many wines from Langhorne Creek and Albion Hills range is our highest quality. As often expressed the special location of Langhorne Creek has not been appreciated until recently.
It can be seen as the eastern expression of McLaren Vale being on the sloping alluvial fans along the eastern side of the Mount Lofty Range while McLaren Vale is on the western and ocean side.
The temperature averages are very similar yet we find more mid palate sweetness in Langhorne Creek reds which is a taste we enjoy. The other attraction of course is that good quality reds are far cheaper than those of the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale.
