Halls Gap Vineyard was planted 1969, along the steep eastern slopes and parched rocky crags of Grampians Ranges, at the very beginning of a renaissance in Victorian viticulture.

The Halls Gap property had long been respected as a venerable supplier to the nation's most illustrious brands. Seppelt and Penfolds called on harvests from Halls Gap for their finest vintages. Until 1996, when it was acquired by the late, great Trevor Mast, who was very pleased to bottle Hall Gap's fruit behind the exhalted label of Mt Langi Ghiran.

Cabernet Sauvignon is harvested predominantly from a block of hanging cane vines grown to the estate E Block and a small parcel at Upper Ngumby Vineyard. Grapes are destemmed and crushed into static fermenters for inoculation and vinification. Upon completion of ferments, a component is pressed and returned, the batches are treated to an extended maceration of three weeks on skins and tasted daily to determine optimal extraction of fine tannins. Parcels are filled to a combination of maturation vessels and 300L oak barrels for thirteen months.
Deep crimson red. Mulberries, blackberry and black currant bouquets. Savoury spices, freshly roasted coffee and dark chocolate make for a complex wine. A palate of ripe berries and currant, long, fine grained tannins adding structure and finesse. A medium weighted and firmly structured wine, striking the balance between strength, palate weight and cool climate elegance.
