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»
Coonawarra graziers have access to the finest soils for viticulture. Doug Balnaves was born in the very heart of Coonawarra, quite near the sacred cricket pitch at Penola. An accomplished herdsman and shearer, Balnaves took up the challenge of planting vineyards in 1971. Working under the tutelage of legendary Coonawarra winemaker Bill Redman, Balnaves immersed himself in the culture of the vine, ultimately establishing a grande marque of Coonawarra and securing the inaugural presidency of the Coonawarra Vignerons Association. He remains a lifelong member of the Penola Pipe Band. For those who like their wines structured yet satin, powerful yet prettily perfumed, in the mouthfillingly muscular Coonawarra way, the Balnaves brand endures in the tradition of world..

Grown to the frigid climes of Central Otago, the vines at Prophet's Rock were established 1999 to the most auspicious sites in the nether regions around the ancient goldfields of Bendigo Creek. Challenging aspects with breathtaking views of Cromwell Basin and Pisa Ranges, these are places defined by their fortuitous soils and favourable climes, tiny parcels of vine capable of just a few hundred cases each vintage, picked for their confluence of growing conditions and husbanded by a devout cadre. The winemaking is decidedly French, small vessels and wild yeasts, followed by an extended term on sedimentary lees for opulence. Invigorated by the warmth of alluvial pebbles and infused by the minerality of quartz schists, the opportune vines yield a small range of.. Bounty of bendigo goldfields»

Nothing short of exquisite, a fine acid structure will see it evolve beautifully, clean varietal fruit and softness make it a perfect match today alongside Thai prawns in ginger, chilli and lime.

Riesling is harvested early in the morning to ensure the coldest possible fruit temperature. A key aim of the winemaking process is to preserve the very delicate flavours and aromas. Fruit is immediately pressed without enzyme for a gentle and quick extraction. Only the first portion of free run juice with the freshest flavour and the lowest concentration of phenolics is transferred to tank. Juices are cold settled, racked and left to ferment with wild yeast at 14°C to 16°C. Wild fermentation of the juice although risky for such a fragile variety adds complexity of flavour and increases palate texture. Upon completion the wine is fined, filtered and bottled as soon as possible to preserve the vibrant flavours and aromas.
Brilliant pale straw. Lifted aromas of citrus blossom, zest of lemon, green apple, underlined with floral notes, citrus zest and rose petal evolve in the glass, waxy lemon leaf and lime, complex floral notes feature. The natural acidity is very well balanced and integrated, lifting the freshness of flavours and lengthening the fleshy mouthfeel as it evolves on the palate. Flint stone characters linger, persisting into a crisp mineral finish.
