Once a trading village established in 1842, this remarkable place is a captivating pocket of Australia’s wine and vine history that is a must when visiting the Barossa. Owned by the Lindner family, whose own mark on the Barossa spans six-generations of farming, food, community and wine, Langmeil is renowned for its preservation of old vines and the making of distinguished wines from these cherished sites. At the pinnacle of its winemaking is The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, made from what is understood to be the world’s oldest surviving shiraz vineyard believed planted in 1843 at the heart of this historical patch of Barossa earth.
What The Critics Say
91/100 The Real Review, Ralph Kyte-Powell
"A deeply-coloured shiraz made in the classic big-flavoured, oak-influenced Barossa style, but without excesses. Ripe, earthy aromas of dark berry and plum-like fruit are touched by hints of sweet spices, mint and a good measure of high-toned, vanillin oak. It's medium-bodied, intense in flavour and well-balanced by lively acidity and measured tannins, finishing long with a light, minty fragrance 05 MAR 2020." Drink 2020 - 2028
92/100 The Wine Front, Gary Walsh
"Oooh. This comes with a little ‘Barossa Trust’ faux wax seal on the bottle. Bold chocolaty Shiraz with black fruit, sage and spice and toasty coconut oak. Grainy tannin, plush fruit with savoury flavours and spice, slight warmth from alcohol, and a long chewy finish. Big end of town, done well."
