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 wine is rooted in an extraordinary viticultural story. A small plot of 140-year-old vines in Tanunda was destined to be destroyed to make way for real estate. Langmeil individually transplanted every one of the 300-plus vines onto their own property. Ninety-five percent of the vines survived, and the first post-transplant fruit was picked in 2008. This fruit forms the heart of the blend, and is supplemented with Shiraz from other selected plots of old vines, hand-harvested from late February until early April.

Winery
The bunches were destemmed and then fermented in open tanks for seven days with twice-daily pumpovers, before being basket pressed. After fermentation the wine was matured for twenty-four months in French oak hogsheads, with fifty percent new oak. During this time the wine clarified naturally and was bottled without fining.

Taste
A remarkable Barossa Shiraz that demonstrates the concentration and complexity of old vine fruit. Liquorice, violet and cedar notes add detail to the typical mulberry and blackberry fruit, while the palate combines weight and richness with wonderful vigour and interest.
