Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz 2014

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 at over 170 years old are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.

The iconic Freedom 1843 Shiraz is aged for 25 months in a combination of French oak hogsheads and barriques, 73% new and 27% old. Deep crimson in colour it displays an intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes, that mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spices. On the palate rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with spices and lovely, silky tannins. A full-bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and all-spice and in combination, flow through to the lengthy, brambly fruit finish.
