Jackaman’s vineyard is home to Langmeil’s finest and rarest Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in the 1960s during the Cabernet revolution in the Barossa. This vineyard was lovingly tended by the colourful Barossan Arthur Jackaman, a World War II paratrooper, boxer and butcher who in retirement passed his small plot into Langmeil’s care.
"From low-yielding vines planted '59, '64 and '71 at Lyndoch and Light Pass, matured in French hogsheads (57% new, 43% second use). It all comes together very well, cassis-accented cabernet fruit clear and bright through the oak. Attractive cabernet"
