Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz 2012
Family owned and operated, Langmeil is the home of the Barossa and Australia's oldest surviving vineyard planted to Shiraz in 1843, from where the iconic Freedom 1843 Shiraz hails.
Langmeil is home to The Freedom Shiraz, believed to be 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 are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.
Beautiful name for a wine. Grown on 169 year old vines. Two years in French oak.
The power and the glory of Barossa shiraz. Neither thick nor syrupy and yet power and presence personified. Cherry plum and blackberry with toasty, sawdusty oak woven throughout. It’s not flashy yet it commands attention. Firm tannin comes drenched in fruit. It’s one for the cellar and yet its drinkability is high.
