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...

Pol Roger Pure Extra Brut N.V CONFIRM VINTAGE

Chardonnay Pinot Noir Pinot Meunier Champagne, Epernay France
Pol Roger is remembered by local Champenois for his resistance against the German army. The grateful townsfolk continued to re elect Roger as mayor until 1935, when they bestowed the honour upon him for life. It was the Champagne of Winston Churchill, who as everybody knows, was satisfied only by the best. Finished without the traditional liqueur expedition dosage, Extra Brut articulates the perfect balance between the holy trinity of grapes, to speak eloquently of the refined balance between Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier.

Established 1849, Champagne Pol Roger remains family owned and proudly independent to this day. Pol Roger was born in 1831, the son of a lawyer. He chose not to follow in his father's footsteps, but received his support when he showed a determined interest in the wine trade. His sales for the first six months of operation were 3,769 bottles and 825 half-bottles. That has grown to around 1½ million per annum. Although Pol Roger started business without a vineyard of his own, Pol Roger currently owns 55 hectares, largely in and around Épernay. The history and spirit of the company mirrors that of the family who bear the same name. A respect for nature, a devotion to quality and of course, le joie de vivre.
Deep gold, lustrous, fine, luxurious mousse. Brimming with the trademark Pinot Meunier flowery fruit, Pinot Noir follows closely behind with mineral characters, cherry and apple. Light bready notes, a more stable nose and palate than a vintage Roger, but with less sweetness. A wonderful bead of lovely white fruits persists, light and tangy, yet rich and yeasty. The sharp acidity, the firm mousse, the floridness and cherry fruit combine to serve and to ingratiate.
