Jane Mitchell is one of Clare Valley's leading wine industry identities, Clare Valley Legend and Clare Valley Winemakers Hall of Fame, Centenary Federation of Australia Medal, SA Tourism Commission, Australian Regional Winemakers Forum, Wine Federation of Australia Council and Australian Wine and Brandy Corporation Board. Mitchell's largest vineyard is at Watervale, a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. It is known by the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz only ever yields minimal harvests, source of the most memorable vintages in our nation's.. These old clare valley vines are just getting better»
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»

Grapes are all hand picked throughout the cool of early morning, off the Nautilus estate River Vineyard in Awatere Valley at the southern end of Marlborough. It's all hands to the pumps and shoulders to the presses as the team work hard to capture the articulate varietal richness of Marlborough Pinot Gris. Whole bunches are gently pressed before being inoculated with aromatic yeasts for a cool vinification, with a view to preserving the viatl characters of fully ripened grapes on the vine. A small portion may be treated to barrel ferments in seasoned oak, the remainder is held on sedimentery yeast lees for three months, infusing the palate with textural creamyness and contributing wonderful complexity.
Pale straw hue. A fragrant aroma of pears and jasmine spice, bright, ripe, white fleshy stonefruit over apples and pine kernel. The palate is medium bodied and beautifully textured, ample fruit, balance with concentration, orange blossom and mineral nut characters continue toward a soft, dry and lingering finish.
