Vintage

lentiful winter rains gave the vines a healthy start to the 2018 growing season. A warmer and drier than average spring hurried things along and early estimates indicated above average bunch numbers in most varieties. Late spring and early summer were relatively mild resulting in good flowering and fruit set. However, dry conditions continued and both berry size (lowering actual yield) and shoot length were somewhat diminished. Several heat spikes in late January and early February (it’s not a South Australian summer if you don’t have a couple!) interrupted veraison, with the picking of some of our earlier ripening vineyards delayed until the beginning of March (later than expected). Perfect, mild ripening weather followed to the end of April ensuring all Eden Valley parcels achieved full flavour ripeness slightly earlier than forecast.

Despite a later than anticipated start and an earlier than usual finish, the compressed harvest produced wines of deep colour, flavour and balance across the board.

Another ripper Barossa vintage!

Aroma

Ripe red fruits and black cherry on the nose with mocha, subtle savoury and herbal notes adding complexity.

The bright and juicy fruits coat the palate and are balanced by pepper and sweet spices. Medium-bodied in structure with great complexity and lovely silky tannins which flow through the fruity, peppery and spicy finish.

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.
