Langmeil, Valley Floor Shiraz. Australia


Langmeil is one of the Barossa’s great modern success stories, although its recent achievements are built on ancient roots. The first vines were planted on the estate in 1843 by a German settler, Christian Auricht, and a winery was in operation here from 1932 to 1988. The property was bought in 1996 by the local Lindner and Bitter families, and they set about meticulously restoring both its buildings and its reputation. Amazingly, the 1843 vines are still alive and producing; they are believed to be the oldest Shiraz vines in the world.

Tasting Notes

A quintessential expression of Barossa Shiraz, with aromas of plum and mulberry offset by milk chocolate, cinnamon and pepper. The rich, voluptuous texture on the palate is lifted by spice and a fresh fruit character that deftly belies the wine’s concentration.

The grapes are sourced from specially selected vineyards across all the sub-regions of the Barossa from a range of 120, seventy, fifty year old and younger vines
