This month we’re only giving away one bottle for our August contest… but it’s a good un.
Planted way back in 1843 by blacksmith Christian Auricht, one of the first German settlers in the Barossa Valley, Langmeil‘s Freedom vineyard today contains the oldest surviving Shiraz vines in the world.
Just last week James Halliday awarded the 2008 vintage of Langmeil’s The Freedom 1843 Shiraz 97 points, one of the highest scores ever awarded by the esteemed critic and world authority on Australian wine.
