TASTE
A full-bodied wine with a lightness of touch, this shows the typical plum and mulberry fruit of Shiraz lifted by the delicate apricot and floral notes of Viognier. The palate is rich and spicy but still retains a seam of elegance and a long, poised finish.

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
The grapes for this blend are sourced predominantly from vineyards in the Penrice and Lyndoch areas of the Barossa. Soils are deep red clay over limestone, deep black clay, and alluvial loam. The harvest took place from mid-March to mid-April.

WINERY
The Shiraz was destemmed, while the Viognier was destemmed, crushed and lightly pressed. They were co-fermented over seven days with twice-daily pumpovers in open tanks, then basket pressed. After fermentation the wine was matured for twelve months in seasoned French (90%) and American (10%) oak hogsheads. Duing this time the wine clarified naturally and was bottled without fining.
