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.
Chardonnay is one of the most highly prized white varieties in the world. In a diverse region like the Barossa, we have choosen to take the High Road to Eden Valley, Barossa’s high country and premium cool-climate district, to capture the very best of flavour and texture that Chardonnay has to offer.
Old Barossa vignerons referred to their vineyards as gardens. The Three Gardens is a contemporary blend of Viognier, Marsanne and Roussanne – varieties which, while new to the Barossa, show great promise. The best characteristics of each variety have been combined to create a truly harmonious wine.
The Live Wire represents an energetic evolution of the traditional Riesling style introduced by our migrant forefathers in the 1840s. From the renowned Eden Valley, it is finely balanced with upfront fruit and a tangy crispness on the finish. Vivacious and perfectly refreshing!
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.
Old Shiraz vines were part of the boom of the 19th Century as the demand for the much acclaimed reds of the district spread throughout Australia and the Empire. During this halcyon age Australian Sparkling Shiraz was born.
Old Barossa vignerons referred to their vineyards as gardens. The Three Gardens is a contemporary blend of Grenache, Shiraz and Mataro, varieties grown in the Barossa since the 1840s. The best qualities of each grape have been selected to create this unique premium red blend.
Malbec is a historic variety originally native to south-west France, whose centre of gravity moved to the southern hemisphere in the late twentieth century. It is renowned for its age worthy, deeply coloured rich and smooth wines. Here in the Barossa it makes a real Black Beauty of a wine.
While the Barossa is renowned for its German heritage there is an important Italian influence too. When the Della Mina family, who emigrated to South Australia from northern Italy in the 1930s, were joined in marriage to the Lindner family, a strong and enduring bond was forged based on a mutual love of family, farming, food and wine.
Hiding under the Mourvédre alias, Mataro has too often been relegated to the rank of a ‘blends only’ varietal. The time for a Resurrection is now. Driven by the new generation of Barossa winemakers, Mataro is once again taking its place as a single varietal of regional significance.
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 in what became the village’s trading area. His original shop remains a feature of the winery’s heritage today.
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.
The Fifth Wave is Langmeil’s most treasured Old Vine Garden Grenache and is dedicated to the fifth generation of the Lindner family. 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. Once a neglected Old Vine Garden in Lyndoch, The Fifth Wave vineyard was rejuvenated by Langmeil and in 1999 winemaker Paul Lindner saw the potential of the Grenache from this unique vineyard and with tenacity convinced the owners to produce a straight varietal, in all likelihood the first time Grenache from this time honoured Old Vine Garden had been truly prized.
Jackaman’s vineyard is Langmeil’s finest and rarest Cabernet Sauvignon, planted in the 1960s during the Cabernet revolution in the Barossa. This vineyard was lovingly tended by the colourful Barossan Arthur Jackaman, a World War II paratrooper, boxer and butcher who in retirement passed his small plot into Langmeil’s care.
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 1890s. 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.
From it's birth in the 1840's, the Barossa grew and flourished on the foundation of fortified wines. This 25-year-old Liqueur Tawny is a legacy of that time and testament to the knowledge and foresight of generations past.
Langmeil’s Riesling is picked from old, tangled vines which flourish on ancient soils in the cooler Eden Valley. After harvest, the pristine fruit is gently pressed and fermented at cool temperatures to produce this delicate, yet intense wine, balanced with crisp natural acidity, typical of the renowned Eden Valley region of the Barossa.
