Langmeil Winery is home to The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, believed to be planted in 1843 by vigneron Christian Auricht. Escaping war and persecution in Prussia, Auricht travelled to his new homeland, finding freedom in the Barossa Valley. The original plantings still survive and are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.
"Langmeil's 2016 The Freedom 1843 Shiraz comes out of the chute with smoky notes of grilled meat and cracked pepper, which serve to balance the wine's bold boysenberry fruit, ample body and rich, creamy tannins. Full-bodied and supple, it's not unapproachable, but it should be better in a couple of years and should drink well for another 10-15 after that. Complex, layered and seductive, it's a compelling example of Barossa Shiraz."
