Langmeil Grenache is the essence of the Barossa, capturing all the extravagant fruit and power for which ¿Australia¿s oldest and most important region¿ (Hugh Johnson¿s Wine Companion) is so famous. Great colour, immense black fruit flavour.
Langmeil has a long and distinguished history dating back to 1842 and is believed to have the world's oldest surviving Shiraz vineyard. Established in the Barossa by early German settlers, the winery was taken over and refurbished by three locals ' Richard Lindner, Carl Lindner and Chris Bitter ' in 1996. They retained the traditional basket presses and open-fermenters ' equipment that contributes greatly to the wine's character and complexity. The other vital factor is the age of the Grenache vines, some of which were planted nearly a century ago. Australia's foremost wine writer James Halliday rates Langmeil the full 5 Stars. Enjoy this generous giant of a wine with lamb shanks, spit-roasts and mild curries.
