Barossa
Available by the dozen
Cabernet Rosé at its finest, by one of the Barossa's most adroit handlers of dry grown old vines.

Stylistically reminiscent of the Loire Valley's Cabernet d'Anjou, fashioned to be refreshingly tannic yet forward drinking, medium bodied and quenching. It is said that great wine starts in the vineyard. Through a close liaison with some of the Barossa's most distinguished winegrowing families, Langmeil's team assess how the growing season has affected fruit, to collate parcels of the highest order. By keeping components separate throughout the winemaking, consistency and quality can be ensured at every vintage. To maximise the good Barossa fruit, Langmeil harnesses the synergy of new and old world vinification techniques, capturing the essence of a fine Rosé in contemporary Aussie styling. Alcohol 12.0%
 
Candy apple red with pale pink hues. A pretty perfume of strawberry and raspberry fruit with hints of toffee apple and musk lollies. Generous with refreshing, sweet red fruits which mingle with bright, zesty acidity, flowing through to a lingering, crisp Granny Smith apple finish. The Rose of choice to accompany red fish cutlets, spicy vietnamese faire or a very classy, runny Brie.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz 2012
Barossa
Excellent Langtons Classification. The Freedom Block was established 1843, planted to vine by Lutheran settlers, Christian Auricht and his kin, early pioneers who were escaping persecution and war, just seven years after South Australia was colonised. They found freedom to work, worship and prosper in the Barossa. The Freedom has not only survived but thrives to this day, it yields an extraordinary Shiraz wine. These thick trunked, dry grown, low yielding, gap toothed old vines on the banks of North Para River, may be the oldest surviving Shiraz in Australia.

A single vineyard wine of rare excellence. When the current operators acquired Freedom, these sacred parcels had lain unattended for almost a decade. After four years of devoted hand pruning and careful viticulture, the precious vines were nursed back to manageable conditions. These dry grown, hand pruned old vines yield less than two tonnes per acre, surrendering only the most exceptional grapes exhibiting extreme intensity of flavour. Grapes are hand picked, gently crushed and treated to an open fermentation and basket pressing into a selection of mostly new French oak barriques for two years maturation, handled in such a way as to preserve the integrity of the Freedom 1843 vineyard.
 
Medium to deep red crimson with purple hues. Satsuma plum and lifted raspberry perfume mingle with lovely biscuit and vanillin French oak, hints of menthol and sweet spice. Rich, sweet fruit flows onto the palate, balanced by fine, well integrated French oak. Velvety smooth yet youthfully austere tannins and good acidity adds to the balance with the sweet and slightly briar spice flowing through onto the long and bright fruited finish.
Langmeil Long Mile Shiraz 2015
Barossa
The story of Long Mile dates back to early settlement, after Silesian emigres availed themselves of the kind invitation by George Fife Angas to populate the new colony of South Australia. They founded the hamlet of Langmeil and took to agriculture, establishing vineyards as a priority. Many of these wonderful old sites remain productive, Langmeil are custodians of a 3½ acre block planted in the 1840s. Parcels from mature sites at Lyndoch, Light Pass and Tanunda are assembled into a generously flavoured, engagingly complex, seamless Shiraz of affable old world charm.

Shiraz is harvested off vineyards up to thirty five years of age, planted to deep sand and red clay soils, mostly trained to single and double wire rod and spur trellis, yielding a mere three to four tonnes per acre. Yields can be much lower during drier growing seasons and hotter vintages, as the parched vines grown to older, unirrigated sites struggle for nourishment. Fruit is crushed and sent for a cold soak maceration in a mix of fermenters, batches are inoculated and treated to a traditional vinfication, plunged and pump over for optimal extraction. Upon completion, components are filled to a selection of seasoned French and American oak barrels for a year's maturation.
 
Crimson colour with purple hues. Rich aromas of mulberry and satsuma plum, savouryness, roast vegetable, meat and herbal notes. Bright, juicy fruit flows over the palate, a lovely full mouthfeel and texture, fine white pepper and briar spice adding to the complexity, silky tannins in support of a long, fruit filled and subtley spiced finish.

The Langmeil winemakers have lived in the Barossa for several generations, two families sharing a passion for Old Vines Shiraz. Enter the Barossa Old Vine Company, a concept which has taken over 100 years to evolve. The source vines for the 2003 were all hand pruned and picked, yielding smaller berries with a higher ratio of skin to juice, extremely intense in flavour, colour and aroma.
 
Colour is a very deep crimson, purple. Lifted blueberries and mulberry jam dominates the aroma with hints of milk chocolate and briary spice. A very rich and powerful wine with all the fruits flowing onto the palate. Dark berries and plums harmonize with smokey chocolate oak, vibrant, concentrated but supply sweet with raspberries and cherries. Velvety smooth fruit and tannins, nutty and biscuity oak characters come into play balancing the sweet fruit followed by an extremely long finish showing pepper and spice. A marvelous red to thoroughly savour with quality cheeses and flavoursome cuisine, Old Vine Company Shiraz will definitely reward those patient enough to keep it in the cellar.

Sweet primary fruits transfer to the palate which is full and well balanced with briary spice and fine firm oak tannins. The finish is very long, youthful and fruit driven.
In 1836 George Fife Angas, Chairman of The South Australian Company, was approached by the Lutheran people of Silesia, who were fleeing Prussian oppression and seeking a new homeland

He sent his chief clerk, Charles Flaxman, to Prussia and, after a favourable report, chartered two ships to take the migrants from Hamburg. As each ship arrived in Adelaide, the emigrants were dispersed to various settlements in the vicinity. After much negotiation, Pastor August Kavel secured land in the Barossa Valley to congregate the migrants, and in 1842 the village of Langmeil was established.

Langmeil

One of the new settlers was a 32 year old blacksmith, Christian Auricht. With his wife and four children he settled first in Glen Osmond, then in Klemzig and finally in the new village of Langmeil. There he acquired the largest allotment of land. Once cleared he planted a mixed fruit orchard and a Shiraz vineyard. The property remained with the family until the 1930s when it became a winery called Paradale. By early 1970 Paradale had been taken over by Bernkastel Wines. Bernkastel continued its business until 1988 when its crushing operations ceased and by 1993 the cellar door was closed.

The property was purchased in 1996 by three local businessmen whose families have lived in the Barossa Valley for several generations, Richard Lindner, Chris Bitter and Carl Lindner. They restored the remaining old buildings and the village well, refurbished the winery and named it Langmeil, after the original village. Some of Christian Auricht's original vines still remained, a 31/2 acre patch of the 1840s Shiraz, albeit neglected. The most important task was to revive them. The vines are dry grown, and after careful tending Langmeil's first vintage was hand picked in 1997.

Like many wine growing regions, the Barossa has had its dark days. One of the worst was in the mid 1980s. Australia was experiencing a glut in wine production and export markets were very small. In South Australia the surplus was such that the government believed they had to intervene. They offered a bounty of $1500 per acre to growers to pull out their vines and they could not replant for seven years. The purchase price of grapes hit an all time low of $150 per tonne for premium Shiraz (in 2003 premium Shiraz earns $5000 per tonne). A lot of local growers accepted the offer and many prime vineyards disappeared.

Fortunately, a small group of Barossa winemakers understood the significance of the rare old vines and refused to destroy them. They lobbied and educated the consumer, the media and the government and promoted this unique aspect of the region. A delegation of Masters of Wine was invited from England to sample Australia's finest wines including some from the Barossa. This was the turning point. The praise the wines received brought big orders. The United Kingdom started what is now a global demand for Barossa and Australian wines.

It is said great wine starts in the vineyard. Langmeil's commitment to 100% premium Barossa wine certainly upholds this philosophy. Paul Lindner, chief winemaker, is involved in the winemaking process from vine to wine. Through liaison with growers, he sees how the seasons affect the fruit; he learns then recommends the best practices to ensure optimum quality. By keeping individual vineyard parcels separate throughout the winemaking process, he can assess each vineyard for consistency and quality every vintage.

Such differentiation also highlights the varietal characteristics of each subregion. This process is crucial in ensuring wellbalanced wines with subtle complexities. Langmeil obtains much of its fruit from old, prephylloxera and own root vineyards throughout the region, in order to guarantee the quality and consistency of its wines. Pruning methods vary according to variety and region within the Barossa. The most common methods are Rod and Spur (Cane Pruning) and permanent arm Spur Pruning.

To maximise the quality of the fruit and capture the essence of the vineyards the right equipment is needed. Langmeil is a small, family run business and it has taken a few years to acquire all the equipment required to create our special styles of wine. The synergy of new and old world equipment has helped to capture the characteristics in each variety and protect the subtleties of individual vineyards. Thus the high quality of Langmeil's wine is assured.
