A taste of 1843: The Freedom Shiraz

Here’s a little insight from the Lindner brothers into what to expect for the 2010 vintage at Langmeil. Currently we only have two wines from the 2010 vintage, two Eden Valley whites, but in the video (about 2 minutes in) Paul has a sneaky taste of the 2008 Freedom Shiraz which was still in barrel when this was shot back in May of last year. In case you’re not already aware, it comes solely from what is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving Shiraz vineyard in the world. There’s a bottle up for grabs in this months contest.

The Freedom scored particularly well in James Halliday’s 2012 Australian Wine Companion, I’m just glad we managed to get some of it as there’s never too much to go around. The lads also taste the 2010 Eden Valley Cabernet, maybe one we’ll acquire when they release it (and if they want to give it to us). Paul believes that, on a whole, 2010 was the best vintage since 2005 with some wines expected to be the best in the last ten years, so we look forward to those. In the meantime, we’re going to enjoy the last five years of Paul’s hard work :D
