TASTING NOTES
Pure, classic Riesling aromas of granny smith apple and citrus blossom are followed by a dry, elegant palate full of zesty lime and apple flavours.

PRODUCER

Langmeil is one of the Barossa’s great modern success stories, although its recent achievements are built on ancient roots. The first vines were planted on the estate in 1843 by a German settler, Christian Auricht, and a winery was in operation here from 1932 to 1988. The property was bought in 1996 by the local Lindner and Bitter families, and they set about meticulously restoring both its buildings and its reputation. Amazingly, the 1843 vines are still alive and producing; they are believed to be the oldest Shiraz vines in the world.

VINEYARD
Grapes for this wine were sourced from a small single vineyard high up in the Eden Valley, at 480 metres above sea level. The vines are forty-five years old, planted on sandy loam and decomposed granite soils, and are dry-farmed. Harvest took place on the third of March.

WINERY
The grapes were destemmed, crushed and drained; only the free-run juice was used. This was cool fermented in stainless steel tanks, and bottled without oak or malolactic to retain freshness and purity of aroma.
