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 last century, The Fifth Wave is our ‘call to arms’ to preserve, promote and protect the best of the Barossa.

The complex, earthy 2018 Fifth Wave Grenache has replaced the redberry flavours this bottling showed in 2014–2016 with deeper, darker fruit notes—instead of raspberries and strawberries, it's more blackberries and black cherries. But there's still an attractive flurry of dried spices and remarkable litheness and agility for such a full-bodied wine. The tannins are ripe and silky, almost diaphanous, yet sufficient (when combined with the wine's acidity) to give the wine shape and length on the finish.

Jackaman’s vineyard is home to 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.

Cassis and mint inform the nose of the 2017 Jackaman's Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a terrific success in a vintage that wasn't the easiest, with plenty of weight and richness on the palate, deeply concentrated cassis flavors and just hints of what must be a considerable proportion of new French oak; the bulk of those cedary, vanilla-tinged nuances have been easily absorbed into the wine. Supple and plush, it's already accessible—and might just as well be drunk over the next decade, while waiting for the 2018 to round into form.

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 North Para River. We called these ten rows the “Orphans”, but after 150 years they have a new home.

The beauty of these relocated old vines is that they never seem to yield a wine that's too ripe or too heavy. The 2018 Orphan Bank Shiraz offers up scents of red raspberries and blueberries alongside hints of mint. The oak (all French oak hogsheads, 47% new) is well-balanced and integrated into the wine, barely noticeable in this full-bodied beauty. Supple and charming, it's a very pretty Shiraz—maybe not the biggest or baddest beast—but remarkably elegant and long-lasting on the finish.

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 guardians’ efforts for more than one hundred years.

Scorched bay leaf, roasted meat, espresso—the 2017 Pure Eden Shiraz is the most savory of the vintages I've had the chance to taste. It's medium to full-bodied but firmly structured, almost corseted, if you will, into a tight sheath of firm tannins that turn dusty on the lingering finish. It's concentrated and complex but far from charming. Give it at least a few more years of cellaring.

Langmeil Winery is home to The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, believed to be 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. The original plantings still survive and are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.

Langmeil's 2017 The Freedom 1843 Shiraz is a more savory vintage than many others, boasting scents of black olives, licorice and espresso against a backdrop of dark fruit. Yet it's full-bodied, concentrated and generous on the palate, avoiding any sense of austerity and finishing long and plush. It should drink well for 15 years or more.

Langmeil Winery is home to The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, believed to be 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. The original plantings still survive and are some of the oldest and rarest vines in the world.

From one of the Barossa's oldest vineyards, Langmeil's 2018 The Freedom 1843 Shiraz lives up to its pedigree. Aged in French oak hogsheads (44% new), it delivers bold, delicately lifted aromas of blackberries, grilled plums and vanilla on the nose, while the full-bodied palate is velvety and plush, loaded with ripe tannins without seeming overdone or heavy. The lengthy finish adds savory hints of black olive and licorice, adding enough food-friendly complexity to keep it interesting sip after sip. It's a lovely counterpoint to the Pure Eden Shiraz of the same vintage.
