  • WHO MADE IT?
  • The site where the Langmeil winery now sits was originally settled by Blacksmith Christian Auricht way back in 1842. Christian went on to establish a bakery, smithy, a butcher's shop and a cobbler as well as planting a 1 hectare vineyard on the estate. This vineyard, still in use today, has been called the Freedom 1843 block and is believed to be one of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in the world. Flash forward 160+ years and the Langmeil winery and vineyard is back in family hands, with Carl Lindner, Richard Lindner and Chris Bitter now owning this historic Barossan estate. Like many Barossan estates with a bent for traditional full bodied reds, Langmeil prefers open fermenters and basket presses, utilising these fabulously archaic methods for over half its grape intake of approximately 1000 tonnes. In a similar vein, the wines are only minimally handled and minimally filtered before bottling in an attempt to preserve natural flavour and complexity.

    Perfumed nose of violets and cedar. Very refreshing on the palate with lovely brightness with a delicious after taste.

    From Lyndoch and Light Pass, the average vine age 70yo. The wine spent 19 months in used French oak, and I am surprised that the fruit flavours weren't confectionary/Turkish Delight.

    GARY WALSH - THE WINE FRONT


    Love is the seventh wave, not the fifth. Though I'll take the fifth if I'm questioned... Peppermint Pattie, dark cherry, spice, gum leaf, cedar. Juicy cherry and raspberry, full-bodied, plenty of soft and smudgy tannin, dried mint, some warmth and a long finish. The minty eucalyptus thing is a bit distracting, but the concentration and flavour is otherwise excellent.

    This has attractive wild raspberries with a leafy and gently earthy edge. The tannins are ripe and slightly sinewy, and they outrun the fruit on the nutty finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
