Langmeil is home to The Freedom Shiraz vineyard, which we believe was planted in 1843 by vigneron Christian Auricht. Escaping war and persecution in Prussia, Auricht travelled to his new homeland, finding Freedom in the Barossa Valley. His original plantings survive to this day and at 171 years old are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.
NOTES for 2014: Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues. Aroma: An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha and toasty, roasty notes, mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spice. Palate: Rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spice and lovely, silky tannins. A medium to full bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and biscuit and in combination, flows through to the lengthy, fruitful and spicy finish. Cellaring: 2016 - 2028.
