The site where the Langmeil winery now sits was originally settled by Blacksmith Christian Auricht way back in 1842. Christian went on to establish a bakery, smithy, a butcher's shop and a cobbler as well as planting a 1 hectare vineyard on the estate. This vineyard,still in use today, has been called the Freedom 1843 block and is believed to be one of the oldest Shiraz vineyards in the world.
Flash forward 160+ years and the Langmeil winery and vineyard is back in family hands, with Carl Lindner, Richard Lindner and Chris Bitter now owning this historic Barossan estate
Like many Barossan estates with a bent for traditional full bodied reds, Langmeil prefers open fermenters and basket presses, utilising this fabulously archaic methods for over half its grape intake of approximately 1000 tonnes. In a similar vein, the wines are only minimally handled and minimally filtered before bottling in an attempt to preserve natural flavour and complexity.
Langmeil Wine Types
The emphasis at Langmeil is absolutely focused on full bodied reds and the range reflects that. It's a quirky one though, with a fair share of oddities thrown into the mix too. The wines include a Sparkling Ondenc, Sparkling Shiraz, Riesling, Viognier, Chardonnay, a Shiraz Grenache Mataro blend and a straight Grenache as well as classic Cabernet Sauvignon and of course Shiraz (with some sneaky Shiraz port in there too).
