TASTE
A delightfully moreish medium-dry Riesling, light in alcohol and full of vivid green apple, lime and floral notes. Natural grape sweetness enhances the fruit flavours up-front, but then gives way to a crisp dry 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
This Riesling was harvested over two days in February, from two vineyards containing twelve, thirty-one and forty-two year old vines. Soils are mostly decomposed granite with grey sandy loam.

WINERY
The grapes were crushed and destemmed, and the free run juice drained off to ferment; no pressings were used. The wine was cool-fermented in stainless steel until reaching 8.5% alcohol, then the fermentation was stopped to leave forty-one grammes per litre residual sugar.
