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»

Tar Roses Shiraz CONFIRM VINTAGE

Shiraz Victoria
Winemaker Don Lewis adores the tannins, structure and electrifying expressions of Spanish wine. Fruit for Tar & Roses is harvested off elite Heathcote vineyards, much of which must be hand picked, all components are treated separately throughout ferments and ageing. The larger volume of Shiraz comes from richer Cambrian soils, while the smaller parcel is grown to much tougher gravelly, grantic soils. The first component makes a rounder, fuller fruit driven wine with intense chocolate and earth characters, the latter contributes elegance and restraint.

A mostly Heathcote Shiraz, with a smaller component of fruit harvested off superior vineyards further afield. Bunches are crushed and destemmed into vinimatic fermenters, pumped over thrice daily and closely monitored for tannins, acidity and extraction. After ten days vinification, batches are pressed and racked off gross lees into a selection of seasoned and new, French oak barriques for completion of malolactic and a year's maturation.
Deep crimson colour. Intense black cherry aromas coupled with lifted raspberry notes, a compote of summer berries. Supported by hints of vanilla, chocolate and earthy complexity. Sweet black cherry fruit flavour with chalky cocoa/ chocolatey tannin. This, plus good acid and length makes a well balanced palate. A match with char grilled lamb cutlets and sugo pomodore.
