The back label describes Cliff Edge as “baby Langi”, a reference to the winery’s $100 flagship, “Langi” shiraz. The beautifully elegant 2010 Langi, reviewed last year, rates among the greatest shirazes I have tasted. And Cliff Edge, though somewhat chunkier in tannins, delivers its own elegance and irresistible charm. The intense flavour of cool-grown shiraz underpins the wine. But winemaking techniques weave attractive aromas, flavours and textures through the fruit:  whole bunches in the ferment; warm fermentation; hand and foot plunging of the skins during fermentation; finishing the primary ferment and secondary malolactic ferment in barrels; and maturation in Burgundian oak barrels. It adds up to an aromatic, savoury-spicy, medium-bodied shiraz with considerable cellaring capacity.
