94 points: James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion
Very deep crimson purple. The nose has intense aromas of blackcurrant, mint and cassis with a herbeceous edge and lovely biscuity french oak nuances. The palate is rich with juicy fruit and balanced with fine velvety tannins giving an extremely long fruitful yet dry finish.
James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion: "A wine that honours its 60+-year-old vines, with hand pruning, hand picking, small bunch open fermenting, basket pressing and fermentation in French oak (50% new). The vintage posed a supreme challenge for cabernet but the wine passed the test with its redcurrant fruit and fine tannin support." 94 points
Planted midway through last century at the southern end of Lyndoch in the Barossa Valley, the fruit from this single acre of low-yielding Cabernet Sauvignon vines is hand-picked, gently destemmed, open fermented and basket pressed. This fantastic wine has developed a deliciously intense perfume of blackcurrants and mulberry with rich dark chocolates after two years in a combination 43% new and 57% seasoned French oak hogsheads. A powerful wine from mature vines.Another small, old Barossa vineyard lovingly tended by Langmeil's growers and dedicated to its previous owner. Arthur Jackaman was a parachutist in World War II, a boxer then a butcher in Broken Hill. He later settled in the Barossa where he became a well known local character.
James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion has rated Langmeil Winery with five stars, placing it amongst the very top echelon of Australian Wineries.
