Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz 2017
Langmeil Winery is home to The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, believed to be planted by vigneron Christian Auricht in 1843. Escaping war and persecution in Prussia, Auricht travelled to his new homeland, finding freedom in the Barossa Valley. The original plantings still survive and are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world. An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes combine with hints of cedar and sweet spices. The Palate is rich, where sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spices and lovely, silky tannins. A full-bodied, textured wine, showing great complexity with hints of cedar and allspice flowing through to the lengthy, brambly fruit finish.
