If a producer earns the title of best sparkling winemaker in the world (IWSC), they could either rest on their laurels or double down on what makes them special.
Langham opted for the latter in what is one of the most distinctive, most typically ‘Langham’ wines to date. What makes this unique is that there was no sulphur dioxide added at all during the winemaking process.
On the nose the Langham is rich with red apple, pear, roasted walnut and freshly toasted sourdough, with a hint of fennel.
The palate is spellbinding, with a fusion of crunchy orchard fruit, roasted salty nuts, toasted herbs and almond pastry. It’s so beautifully textured, ushered in by a soft, supple mousse and wild purity. Superb.
