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»
Samuel Smith migrated from Dorset England to Angaston in the colony of South Australia circa 1847, he took up work as a gardener with George Fife Angas, the virtual founder of the colony. In 1849, Smith bought thirty acres and planted vines by moonlight, the first ever vintages of Yalumba. One of his most enduring legacies were some unique clones of Shiraz, which were ultimately sown to the illustrious Mount Edelstone vineyard in 1912. Angas's great grandchild Ron Angas acquired cuttings from the Edelstone site and migrated the precious plantings to his pastures at Hutton Vale. The land remains in family hands, a graze for flocks of some highly fortunate lamb. In between the paddocks, blocks of Sam Smith's experimental vines yield a harvest of the most spectacular Shiraz to be found in.. The return of rootstock to garden of eden»

Pertaringa is surrounded by magnificent stands of native gum trees. All vines are pruned to control vigor and crop levels using a combination of regimens. In the summer the vines are topped and trimmed cutting the shoot tips off to encourage lateral growth and make the vines easier to access. Ironically, Pertaringa's Shiraz was initially sold off to Hardy Wines, proprietor Geoff Hardy's family company, to make port and to exchange for other wines as payment. Today Pertaringa's old Shiraz vines make the finest full bodied reds of the region and are highly sought by leading companies for their flagship wines. The most superior parcels of estate fruit are set aside for the Pertaringa label.
Deep plum ruby colour. Exuberant fragrances, aromas of dark cherries and blackberry. A complex array of lifted fruit flavours, an inky concentration, the palate delivers waves of vibrant satsuma plum, black cherries and beetroot that interplay with freshly laid asphalt and earth. In archetypal McLaren Vale style, silky, lively mouthfeel, framed by savoury elements. Fine grain French oak tannins keep the wine on course to deliver a persistent finish.
