91 points: James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
On the eye, this wine is deep crimson with purple hues. On the nose, there is wonder lifted dark cherry, satsuma plum and violet perfume meld with fine milk chocolate and a hint of white pepper. In the mouth, expect sweet fruit and spice, which continue through to the long, fruitful, spicy and youthfully tight finish. Typical dry chalky tannins balance the ripeness, sweet spice and chocolate nuaces.This wine was matured for 2 years in a combination of 70% new and 30% seasoned French oak.
Langmeil's old vine garden at Lyndoch, planted in 1953, is the single site for the Fifth Wave Grenache. It produces a low yielding crop between 1 to 1.5 tonne to the acre. The fruit continues to be dry grown; hand pruned and hand-picked which maximises the vibrancy and intensity of the fruit flavour. The style is again truly Langmeil, and with the philosophy of no fining and no filtration, they preserve and promote the true essence of Grenache.James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion has rated Langmeil Winery with five stars, placing it amongst the very top echelon of Australian Wineries.
