2006 The Freedom 1843
Traditional winemaking Langmeil’s style; hand picking flavour ripe bunches, gentle crushing, open fermentation and basket pressing into new (70%) and older (30%) French Oak barriques for two years, intended to preserve the integrity of the Freedom 1843 vineyard. This is the 10th bottling of the Freedom 1843 by Langmeil, and we are confident it will benefit from further bottle age and decanting. The Freedom 1843 is testament to the best of the Barossa, and the determination and independent vision of the Bitter and Lindner families at Langmeil, who have farmed in the district for five generations.
