There's a vineyard at Moorooduc in upper Mornington, planted to a splendid north facing slope which captures the maximum warmth of sunshine each day. Refreshed after nightfall by the invigorating maritime winds off Bass Strait and Port Phillip Bay, it's a place of exceptional winegrowing. Populated by ten unique Burgundy clones, this very special block of vine grew the only Pinot Noir ever to claim our nation's highest accolade for great red wines, the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy. The property continues to yield limited releases of outstanding vintages, it's a place of exacting viticulture and uncompromising pursuit of excellence, cherished by cognoscenti and exalted by industry press, the vineyard known as Yabby Lake...

The story of Langmeil begins with early Barossa settlement, planted to Shiraz by Christian Auricht in the 1840s, the estate vineyards were restored by the Lindner and Bitter families during the 1990s. Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore. Saved from the ravages of time by the hand of providence and generations of dedicated Barossa growers... The legacy landscapes of langmeil»

The Schrapel property is hand pruned to seventy buds per vine, traditional viticulture limits the yield to 6.25t/hectare. The healthy old vines sprout a superb harvest and there is very low incidence of disease. Fruit is crushed and de stemmed on skins in open top fermenters for eight days at 15C to 18C. Ferments are racked and pumped over skin caps for optimal colour and tannin extraction. Upon completion, batches are pressed and left to settle for malolactic, followed by transfer to a selection of seasoned and new French oak barrels for an extravagant twenty two months maturation, enhancing the sublime old vineyard fruit character and building fine palate structure.
Deep garnet, almost black colour. Aromas of ripe berries leap from the glass, followed by the rich, ripe blackberry and plum fragrances of Barossa Shiraz. A generous palae of mellow fruit flavours, showing excellent acid balance and restrained, supportive tannins. A finish that's full of Barossa chocolate plum fruit characters, gritty fruit tannins and crispy cherry acidity, silky soft, lingering and long.
