Overview

The old Barossa vigneron referred to his vineyard as his garden. Our Three Gardens in Tanunda, Lyndoch and Vine Vale are the source of this red blend.

These Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache vines demonstrate perfectly the benefit of combining pedigree varieties, a traditional quality blend of the region. Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache have provided inspiration for the Barossa since the 1840s. When blended together they are responsible for some of the great wines of the world and have stood the test of time with a proven pedigree over the past 200 years. Maturation in seasoned oak for twelve months ensures we don’t overpower the fruit and spice, retaining the finesse.

Expert Reviews

Bright colour; fresh, lifted and fragrant spicy bouquet, with red and black fruits and sage thrown in for good measure; lively and refreshing, this is a young style of wine simply made to be enjoyed, and not necessarily in moderation. A 45/35/20% blend of shiraz, mourvedre and grenache. Rating 91 - Drink by 2016 - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion (DEC/2011)

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

The land on which Langmeil Winery now stands was purchased by a 36 year old German blacksmith, Christian Auricht. He and his family arrived in South Australia in 1838 after emigrating from eastern-central Europe (Silesia) to escape religious persecution.

Christian immediately established a smithy, began farming and, in the years that followed, built a bakery, a cobbler's shop, a butcher's shop and the first well which became the trading centre of the village.

The main roadway to Kapunda and Burra, important copper mining towns, passed by the village and many travellers stopped to water their horses and gather provisions before continuing their journey.

Christian planted his first acre of vines on the estate. The variety was Shiraz and the vines are still producing fruit today. Auricht's old vineyard is the source of Langmeil Winery's single vineyard Shiraz. This rare wine commemorates the pioneering spirit of the first settlers and, because of their willingness to endure so much hardship for the right to keep their faith, it has been named The Freedom 1843 Shiraz. The vineyard is believed to be one of the oldest known surviving Shiraz vineyards in the world.

The property was purchased in 1996 by three local mates whose families have lived in the Barossa Valley for several generations: Richard Lindner, Carl Lindner and Chris Bitter. They restored the remaining old buildings and the village well and beautified the gardens. As a tribute to the early pioneers, the new owners refurbished the old winery and named it Langmeil, after the original village.

In addition, some of Christian Auricht's original vines still remained, a small patch of 1840s Shiraz, albeit neglected. The most important task was to rescue them. After several months of tender loving care, The Freedom vineyard was successfully revived. The vines are dry grown and hand picked. After careful gardening, Langmeil's first vintage was harvested in 1997.

Langmeil's award winning premium range is internationally recognized and has contributed towards the winery being regarded as one of the top premium wine producers in Australia. Our young team is dedicated to the success of the winery, driven only by quality in every aspect. We are willing to listen, learn, communicate, educate and be open-minded.
