This collection is Langmeil's purist representation of premium regional wines which concentrate on those varieties that the Barossa does best. By supporting over twenty-five local Barossa family growers, some of which are fifth and sixth generation Barossa growers that hail from many of the varied 'Villages' and sub-regions, we can in turn create regional Barossa blends that provide the winemaking team a cross section of developed flavour profiles to showcase.
Many Europeans choose this style of wine for their drinking pleasure during the Mediterranean summer. This is why we took the name from two traditional wine growing countries, Bella – Italian for beautiful and Rouge – French for red, to label this beautiful red.
The old Barossa vigneron referred to his vineyard as his garden. Our Three Gardens in Tanunda, Lyndoch and Vine Vale are the source of this red blend. These Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache vines demonstrate perfectly the benefit of combining pedigree varieties, a traditional quality blend of the region.
Shiraz, Mataro and Grenache have provided inspiration for the Barossa since the 1840s. When blended together they are responsible for some of the great wines of the world and have stood the test of time with a proven pedigree over the past 200 years. Maturation in seasoned oak for twelve months ensures we don’t overpower the fruit and spice, retaining the finesse.
In 1842 a 32 year-old Blacksmith, Christian Auricht, arrived from Prussia with his wife and four children. He settled in the new hamlet of Langmeil and built a blacksmith shop, around which grew the trading area of the village and provides the aesthetics for the winery to this day.
The artisan of iron has now made way for the new craftsman who has blended the oldest of Barossa traditions to forge this spectacular wine. Our Cabernet Sauvignon, the unsung hero of Barossa wine, has been matured for almost two years, achieving the structure, depth and balance expected from this premium Australian grape growing region.
The Barossa is famous for its viticulture, history and winemaking dating back to the 1840s. At its heart is the Valley Floor, a highly-prized strip of prime viticultural land which is the very foundation and forms the essence of this wine. A true taste of the Barossa.
Local knowledge has helped us select and secure prized Shiraz across the breadth and depth of the Barossa while retaining the foundation fruit from the Valley Floor. The combination of hands-on winemaking and vineyard diversity results in pure Barossa Shiraz.
The Barossa Valley is famous for its viticulture, its history and for its winemaking dating back to the 1840s. At its heart is the Valley Floor, a highly prized strip of prime viticultural land which is the very foundation and forms the essence of this wine, a true taste of the Barossa.
Great vintage and in a format that can age amazingly. Valley Floor is a foundation wine of Langmeil and is a true representation of the Barossa traditions in winemaking and style.
