  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • WHO MADE IT?
  • THE BRIEF
  • The Lindner family of Langmeil Winery has been immersed in the Barossa's culture of farming, food, wine and community for six generations. Their commitment to quality in all aspects is unwavering and any wine that bears the Langmeil name represents the family's pursuit of excellence in wine and community.

    The Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon is one of Langmeil's flagship wines. It pays homage to the Lindner family's migration to Australia and is well renowned.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was predominately aged in older French oak for 19 months. Using vines that were between 15 and 35 years old and sourced from across the Barossa. Cultivated on soil that ranged from Biscay to red clay.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Medium depth crimson colour. The aroma is predominately lifted blueberry, blackcurrant and black olive. Lovely cedar and hints of liquorice and sweet spice adds to the complexity. Bright and rich berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and liquorice. Full-bodied with velvety, fine tannins adding to the structure which flows through the long, fruity and spicy finish.

  • 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.
