The story of Langmeil begins with early Barossa settlement, planted to Shiraz by Christian Auricht in the 1840s, the estate vineyards were restored by the Lindner and Bitter families during the 1990s. Some of Herr Auricht's original plantings are still in production, three and a half priceless acres of gnarled, dry grown vines which provided the cuttings for much of Langmeil's refurbished heirloom parcels. A princely range of old, to very old single vineyard wines, delineated by the eloquence of each unique site, defined by the provenance of history and pioneer folklore. Saved from the ravages of time by the hand of providence and generations of dedicated Barossa growers... The legacy landscapes of langmeil»
Just three kilometres from Young along Murringo Road, planted to a brisk 500 metres above sea level, Grove Estate was originally sown to vines in 1886, by Croatian settlers who brought cuttings from their farms on the Dalmatian coast. Some of these ancient plantings, emigrated at a time when much of Europe was ruled by Hapsburg emperors, remain productive to this day. Newer blocks were gradually established around these priceless parcels, ostensibly with a view to supplying leading national brands. The quality of fruit became so conspicuous that Grove Estate sanctioned industry celebrities from Ravensworth and Clonakilla to begin bottling under their own estate moniker. The greater Hilltops region is renowned for elegantly structured Cabernet and Shiraz. Grove Estate go one better, they deliver harvests of the most princely Sangiovese, Nebbiolo and Barbera.

Bunches of Shiraz are de stemmed into a traditional two tonnes fermenter, vinified through the action of natural ambient yeasts. Batches are hand plunged up to four times daily for optimal control of temperature and extraction, maximising flavour and infusing elegant tannins. Upon completion, ferments remain on skins for a fortnight, followed by a gentle press into the luxury of the finest French oak barriques for thirty months maturation. Only a few hundred cases are made out of the best vintage years.
Deep dark red, intense purple hues. Rich concentrated forest fruit nose, spices, chocolate and cedar notes. Juicy middle palate and intense depth of fruit, layer upon layer of bramble, currants and seasoned plum, all supported by long grainy tannins and a measure of complex oak. Long, clean flavours, exquisite in its seamlessness, Shiraz of extraordinary length.
