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»
There were two scrub covered parcels of land, just outside Pokolbin village along McDonalds Road, that local council had long set aside for use as cricket ground and cemetery. Both were ultimately auctioned off to the highest bidders and sown to vine. A third undeveloped site became the subject of a long running feud among the new and old neighbours. Dodgy invoices between the rivals were exchanged and the division of firewood became a further cause of contention. A truce was eventually called by the two protagonists, Brokenwood and Hungerford Hill, for the sake of healthy viticulture. The nascent blocks achieved international renown as the eminent Cricket Pitch and the Langtons Listed Graveyard Vineyard, establishing Brokenwood as one of the most cherished marques in Hunter Valley wine... Sociable soils make for healthy vine»

Merlot lends itself ideally to wines of this style, intense fruit flavours and soft structure carry through to the finished wine following its secondary fermentation. Grapes are sourced from the Wilgha vineyard, a site which continually produces fruit with highly perfumed qualities, excellent structure and generous, fully ripe tannins. Fruit is picked at ripe Baumes, crushed and vinified on skins for six days in Potter fermenters. This base wine is then matured in a mixture of French and American oaks of varying ages for eighteen months. Secondary fermentation is induced by the addition of yeast and sugar, infusing a fine persistent bead, integrated toasty qualities and generous mouthfeel.
Vibrant purple with crimson hues. Clean and fresh aromas of violet, plums and blackberry are enhanced by dark chocolate notes. A wine of elegance and instant appeal, generously fruity with a predominance of plums, blueberry and raspberry flavours. Savour the mesmerising array of festive cake characters, a moreish wine and sophisticated indulgence, endowed with soft tannins, dulcet fruit flavours and vivacious effervescence.
