This quote beautifully sums up winemaker Ben Haines’ feelings on his current position:
“The feeling this place gives you is indescribable; you simply cannot deny the heritage and the sheer beauty and energy of this very special vineyard. There is so much to acknowledge of the past here at Langi – the more you dig, the more you find. This is part of what makes the future so exciting.”
And an exciting future is exactly what Ben has in mind for this iconic winery.
Here’s a ‘natural wine’ from Mount Langi. Pinot Noir sent to bottle whilst still undergoing ferment. It was not disgorged, received no dosage, no sulphur, no other additives. Mount Langi Pet-Nat. Well I never.
And to top it off, in Mike Bennie’s words, Haines has “Nailed it.”
It has depth and refreshment factor, it has vitality. It’s just a really good drink.
With Haines at the wheel, Mount Langi is in safe hands and we can’t wait to see what else lies in the future of this historic vineyard.
What It Tastes Like
“It smells of still fermenting pinot noir grapes, that prettiness of red cherry, sweetness of strawberry, whiff of herbs, pop of rose floral character. In the palate, light, fresh, fine, raised on fine perky bubbles, gently sweet then finishes sour sweet and with mouthwatering, pleasing bitterness. It’s a stunner. It’s so smashable. It’s so well done.” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
93 points. “Well, you wouldn’t read about it. Pinot noir, left on lees in bottle, no additives, no sulphur. Mount Langi have released what I assume is their first pet nat. It’s based around purity and vitality. Nailed it.

About the Producer
Mount Langi is one of Victoria’s most iconic cool climate producers, famed for its luscious and peppery Grampians Shiraz. Talented young winemaker Ben Haines has taken over the reigns in recent years and is reinvigorating this historic brand with more contemporary styles and some experimental releases.
No variety captures the hearts and minds of the wine lover quite like Pinot Noir. It’s the unicorn of many a winemaker. Notoriously fickle to grow, this delicate red variety can deliver a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas, from the bright and floral to the moody and mysterious and everything in between. The cooler regions of Australia are where Pinot Noir is most at home. Look to Tasmania and Victoria for the best examples, with some quality wines beginning to show from the Great Southern and from the cooler parts of NSW. Falling in love with Pinot Noir can be a life long affair, beware the charms of this most enchanting of grapes.
