Langmeil 'The Freedom' 1843 Shiraz 2004

Regular price $140.00 Sale

Region:  Barossa Valley

Alcohol:  14.6%

Colour:  Very deep crimson  with purple hues

Nose:  Rich fruits of satsuma plums and mulberry intertwines with chocolate, biscuit and cedar French Oak characters.  Hints of lavender, violets and sweet spice complete the picture of the complex and intense aroma

Palate:  All the complexity of the aromas pile up on the palate culminating into a rich, fruit sweet wine with many layers and an extremely long, velvety finish with the youthful austerity you'd expect from a young wine of this nature.   

The Auricht family planted the first Shiraz vineyard at Langmeil in the mid 1840s of which a few acres still remain.  

When Langmeil Winery purchased the property, this vineyard had lain unattended for almost a decade.  It has taken four years to prune it back to a manageable condition.  

These very old dry grown Shiraz vines are hand pruned, hand picked; and yield less than two tonnes of grapes per acre, thereby producing fruit with extreme intensity of colour and flavour.  Made as a single vineyard wine since 1997, The Freedom Shiraz will continue to showcase this vineyard and the unique and rare quality of its wine for many years to come.
