Barossa Valley, Australia

Buy Now:


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.

Lisa Perrotti-Brown, The Wine Advocate

"Undercurrent of star anise, moss-covered bark, espresso, black cherry and Chinese dried plum. The full-bodied palate is opulently fruited, complex and beautifully balanced with firm fine tannins and a long spicy finish."
