TASTING NOTES
This generous, full-bodied Grenache demonstrates the full potential of the variety in the Barossa, with rich red cherry, milk chocolate and white pepper flavours, a lusciously proportioned yet superbly detailed palate, and a vibrantly mineral 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 Fifth Wave vineyard is a single site of just under two hectares, planted in Lyndoch in 1953. The vines are dry-grown on a sandy hillside and produce a very low yield of around 20hl/ha. The first vintage of the wine was 1999, and was produced by the fifth generation of the families at Langmeil, hence the name.

WINERY
The grapes were gently destemmed, fermented in open tanks, and then basket pressed into new (12%) and used (88%) French oak barrels for two years’ ageing. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

AWARDS & PRESS
“This is a very exciting wine. Really neat and interesting. Not like any Grenache or Garnacha elsewhere but a vibrant, beautifully balanced wine. Very rewarding. One of, or perhaps the best, 2009s in this collection. Attractive freshness on the finish. Real lift.” – 17.5/20, jancisrobinson. com, May 2012
