Old Vine Garden Wines
Langmeil Winery's commitment is not only shown in our dedication to the resurrection of our own Old Vine Gardens, but also visible in our support of our loyal growers who are custodians to some very special parcels of Barossa history. Site specific characteristics and micro-climates assist in creating the uniqueness of the Barossa's Old Vine Gardens and are highlighted in single vineyard wines. Regional Barossa blends from these old gardens provide the winemaking team with a cross section of developed flavour profiles to showcase.
Using techniques such as only gently destemming the hand harvested fruit rather than crushing, open fermentation and basket pressing, with completely no fining or filtration, Paul and the winemaking team ensure the full potential of the fruit is captured with old-fashioned minimal handling but labour intensive techniques.
This assortment of wines is our personal expression of the best of our Old Vine Garden fruit from our beloved Barossa, and we trust that you take as much pleasure in tasting, drinking and cellaring them as we do growing and making them.
The old vines for this single vineyard dry Riesling wine are planted on a unique Eden Valley property affectionately known as Wattle Brae for the native trees that resided there upon early settlement. Today it is a cherished Langmeil-owned vineyard dedicated to bringing the best out of variety and region.
A lovely box to store your wines for a special event. We only have 16 units available.
The Fifth Wave is one of Langmeil’s most treasured Old Vine Gardens inspired by the fifth generation of our family in the Barossa. Planted in the middle of the last century, The Fifth Wave is our ‘call to arms’ to protect, preserve and celebrate the best of the Barossa.
Orphan Bank is testament to Langmeil’s commitment to preserving old and rare Barossa vineyards. Ten rows of Shiraz planted pre-1860 were saved from the developer’s bulldozer and replanted alongside the original Langmeil vineyard on the banks of the River Para. We called these ten rows the “Orphans” but after 150 years they have a new home.
Pure Eden is a single site wine, made from an Eden Valley vineyard planted by Charles Angas in the 1890’s. Later owned by the Shiltons 1911–1926; Meakins 1926-1929; Roeslers 1929-1961; Andretzkes 1961-2011 and now the Lindner family, this wine is a reward of these guardian’s efforts over a hundred years.

Langmeil is home to The Freedom Shiraz vineyard, which we believe was planted in 1843 by vigneron Christian Auricht. Escaping war and persecution in Prussia, Auricht travelled to his new homeland, finding Freedom in the Barossa Valley. His original plantings survive to this day and at 171 years old are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.
