Langmeil are sitting on a bit of Australian wine heritage: a 1.5 hectare vineyard - 'The Freedom' - that was planted in 1843, and is believed to house the oldest Shiraz vines in the world!
Flashing crimson appearance, with glass-coating tears. Massive bouquet of blackberry jam, vanilla and mocha, supported by a luscious, unctuous wash of ripe black fruits and toffee. Astonishing Shiraz that's a real study in power, complexity and refinement.
Decant for two hours and enjoy on its own or with slow-braised beef cheeks in red wine.
Crafted from hand-selected Barossa Valley Shiraz (100%) from a beautiful terroir of dark, rich loam over a bed of limestone, clay and ironstone, this fine and rare South Australian red is matured for 2 years in 75% new and 25% second-fill French barriques and hogsheads.
James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion has rated Langmeil a five-star producer, placing it within the very top echelon of Australian wineries.
ALLOCATION WINE: 'The Freedom' is an allocation wine, a wine where demand substantially exceeds supply. Rather than mark-up to reflect this rarity, we reserve the right to exclude from normal price promotions.
