The Billi Billi is a wonderful introduction to the esteemed wines of this iconic estate and for those less familiar with cool-climate Shiraz. "It is a perfumed wine, bursting with Intense, rich red and black fruits, overlayed with dried florals and spice. A layered, generous wine with bounds of aromatic florals and spice, luscious red and black fruits paired with finely structured tannins and mouthwatering acidity." (winemaker's note). Mount Langi Ghiran – Aboriginal for home of the yellow tailed black cockatoo – is set amongst the dramatic backdrop of the Great Dividing Range in the Grampians region of Victoria, producing iconic cool climate wines.

The Billi Billi is a dependable favourite for fans of Victorian Shiraz showing both intense dark fruits as well as nice little savoury touches that lift it above much of the competition. This vintage seems stronger than many recent years showing plenty of power and complexity. Mid ruby in colour it packs quite a punch with sweet blackberry fruits topped up by savoury cedar, peppery spice and eucalyptus – impressive for the price. It is then quite supple in the mouth with layers of mulberry and cranberry fruits underlined by silky tannins. It’s certainly well pitched for a mid-week red, particularly with pink lamb cutlets.
