Guten Morgen!

Many of you will be familiar with the traditional pre-noon German greeting and its English translation of good morning. Most are unaware that a 'Morgen' was also once a unit of land measurement in what is now Germany, Poland and the Netherlands. The word is identical to the German (and Dutch) word for morning because it denoted the acreage that could be furrowed in a morning by a man behind an ox or horse dragging a single-bladed plough. Although its size varied regionally, a 'Morgen' was equal to about two-thirds of an acre in Prussian terms. Usually, about 60–70% of the 'Tagwerk' or working day, or a full day's ploughing.

I recently came across an obscure reference to the term when reading about applying the 'Hufendorf' system in the early German settlement of the Barossa. (I know, I need to get out more!) A 'Hufendorf' is an elongated settlement laid out along a road running parallel to a stream for the uninitiated. Houses fronted the road with farmland opposite and stretching back to the watercourse behind. A village of twelve families, established in 1842, Langmeil was laid out in just such fashion with small farms of around 20 to 40 'Morgens' in area.

On our present site at the northern end of Langmeil Road, pioneering Barossa vigneron, Christian Auricht, settled LOT-36. In homage to Christian, for this third and final week of 'choice relief' offers, we proffer a six-pack of the 2018 LOT-36 Shiraz Cabernet delivered to your door for $89.95. With its flavours of ripe, juicy berries, and sweet and briary spices complemented by hints of black olive and herbs, this medium-bodied wine is a testament to the many 'Gute Morgens' of the Barossa.
