Notes From The Winemaker:

Our fifth generation Barossan winemakers have revived the old vineyards but continue to dry grow, hand prune and hand pick; producing fruit with vibrant colour and flavour. Fruit sourced from our own “Jackaman’s” 60 year old Lyndoch vineyard, dry grown low yielding and extremely intense, as well as fruit from a brilliant 80 year old patch of bush vines belonging to one of our growers, is blended to produce this amazing, bold and complex wine.

Langmeil is home to The Freedom 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. His original plantings survive to this day and are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.
In May 2014, The Freedom 1843 Shiraz joined the prestigious Langton's Classifciation VI honour roll in the category of 'Excellent'.

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.

Aroma: An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha and cookie dough, mingle with hints of cedar, violets and sweet spice.

Palate: Rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spice and lovely, silky tannins. A full bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and biscuit and in combination, flows through to the lengthy, fruitful and spicy finish.

Cellaring: 2013 - 2028

Ratings & Reviews

:


93 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"From vines that were 171 years old when the grapes for this wine were harvested, this is packed with dark berry fruit, then layered with vanilla, cedar and mint. It's full, plush and warm, just too big, intense and bulky for current consumption. Best from 2020–2030." - JOE CZERWINSKI (FEB 2017)

91 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
" Distinctive smoky campfire notes add aromatic lift to the juicy, cardamom-scented wild berry flavors, a touch of fresh herb lingering on the smooth finish. Drink now through 2027. 80 cases imported." – MW (2017)
