Legendary Penfold winemaker John Duval began his apprenticeship in 1974 under the tutelage of the late great Max Schubert. Duval's family had been supplying Penfolds with fruit and root stock for generations, many of South Australia's most prestigious vineyards were sown with cuttings from Duval's family property. Duval was awarded International Wine & Spirit Competition Winemaker of Year and twice London International Red Winemaker of Year. He now focuses on releasing painfully limited editions, assembled from precious parcels of elite Barossa vine, hand crafted by one of the world's most accomplished and peer respected winemakers...

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 fully ripe expressions of West Tamar are balanced by the naturally high, flavoursome malic acidity derived from Pipers Brook, achieving a tight, refreshing and complex style. The vines are meticulously hand tended, maximizing exposure of the bunches to the sun, realizing harvests with the most intense flavours. A generously complex wine of remarkable intensity, courtesy of the natural skin tannins, so ideal with antipasto, oven roasted turkey or white game.

Pinot Gris ripens quickly in all but the coolest of climates, it's ideally suited to the temperate Tasmanian season. Crop levels are kept low by selective bunch thinning to maximize intensity of flavour. Grapes are hand harvested throughout the chill of early morning. Fruit is crushed and immediately processed, the philosophy being to capture and retain the delectable characters of Pinot Gris while still on the vine. Parcels are pressed and treated to a short period of skin contact, extracting additional flavours which are locked away in the skins, this creates a more complex, rich and savoury style of Pinot Gris. Juices are slowly vinified at lower temperatures in a mix of barrel and fermenters, followed by early bottling.
Copper straw hue. Complex bouquet with a lovely depth of aroma, blooming with fragrant pear, jonagold apple, tangelo zest and goji berries. Jasmine and potpourri, subtle nutmeg notes. The palate is generous, full bodied and dry, poached pear flavours, strudels and paw paw, ginger and cinnamon spice, finishing with a fine chalky, mineral dryness.
