Bottle Description

The Freedom is Langmeil's first and foremost vineyard. A small block of Shiraz planted by Christian Auricht and his family in 1843, not only survive, but thrive on the banks of the North Para River, adjacent to our winery. Since the Bitter and Lindner families re-established the abandoned vineyards and winery in 1996, we have vinified the Freedom 1843 separately from other Shiraz at Langmeil. These thick trunked, dry grown, low yielding, gap toothed old vines, which we believe to be the oldest surviving Shiraz in Australia, are guided through the cellars in their 164th vintage by fifth generation family winemaker, Paul Lindner. Robert Parker 95+ points "Medium to deep garnet-purple in colour, the 2012 Shiraz 1843 Freedom is profoundly scented of crushed blackberries, black cherries and mulberries with suggestions of cedar, spice box, black pepper and licorice. Medium to full-bodied, the oak is standing out at this youthful stage though the intensity of fruit and firm backbone of grainy tannins and lively acid suggest this should marry with time and emerge a harmonious wine possessing glorious complexity. Forget this one in the cellar for 5-7 years."
