Winemaker Notes

This wine is medium depth crimson with purple hues. Aromas of lifted, fresh and bright fruit leaps out of the glass with dark cherries, Satsuma plum and blueberries dominating the aroma with sutle hints of chocolate and white pepper. The bright and juicy fruit coats the palate and is well balanced with peppery and sweet spice. Medium bodied in structure with good complexity and lovely silky tannins which flow through the fruitful and spicy finish.

Pairs well with slowly braised Lamb shanks.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
This is nearly equal parts Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache, full bodied and creamy in texture. Black cherries and peppery spice show up on the nose, while the palate adds brighter red raspberries, bass notes of ripe plums, sweet hints of brown sugar and savory, meaty complexity. Drink now–2020.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Fresh and vital, with juicy plum and blackberry flavors, shaded with licorice, pepper and bay leaf as the finish lingers precisely. Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache.
JS 90
James Suckling
Three equal parts of shiraz, mataró and grenache makes this, and it has a slightly reduced, peppery nose. It opens up with air, though, revealing ripe red- and dark-berry fruits.

Langmeil, Australia
Langmeil Winemaker Paul Lindner Winery Image
The land on which Langmeil Winery now stands was purchased by a 36 year old German blacksmith, Christian Auricht. He and his family arrived in South Australia in 1838 after emigrating from eastern-central Europe (Silesia) to escape religious persecution.

Christian planted his first acre of vines on the estate. The variety was Shiraz and the vines are still producing fruit today. Auricht's old vineyard is the source of Langmeil Winery's single vineyard Shiraz. This rare wine commemorates the pioneering spirit of the first settlers and, because of their willingness to endure so much hardship for the right to keep their faith, it has been named The Freedom 1843 Shiraz. The vineyard is believed to be one of the oldest known surviving Shiraz vineyards in the world (pictured here).

The property was purchased in 1996 by three local mates whose families have lived in the Barossa Valley for several generations: Richard Lindner, Carl Lindner and Chris Bitter. They restored the remaining old buildings and the village well and beautified the gardens. As a tribute to the early pioneers, the new owners refurbished the old winery and named it Langmeil, after the original village.

Langmeil's award winning premium range is internationally recognized and has contributed towards the winery being regarded as one of the top premium wine producers in Australia

Historically and presently the most important wine-producing region of Australia, the Barossa Valley is set in South Australia, where more than half of the country’s wine is made. Because the climate is very hot and dry, vineyard managers work diligently to ensure grapes reach the perfect levels of phenolic ripeness.

The intense heat is ideal for plush, bold reds, particularly Shiraz on its own or Rhône Blends featuring Shiraz, Grenache, and Mourvèdre. Often Shiraz and Cabernet partner up for plump and powerful reds. While much less prevalent, light-skinned varieties such as Riesling, Viognier or Semillon produce vibrant Barossa Valley whites.

Most of Australia’s largest wine producers are based here and Shiraz plantings date back as far as the 1850s or before. Many of them are dry farmed and bush trained, still offering less than one ton per acre of inky, intense, purple juice.
