Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"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. Cabernet increased dramatically in the 1950s and ‘60s bringing with it a new vision and direction for the Barossa. From its proud fortified wine heritage, it helped inspire the Barossa’s future as a premium dry red region.
Lifted blackcurrant and blueberry aromas entwine with biscuity French oak, hints of liquorice and more savoury, black olive notes. Bright, juicy and rich blue fruits flow onto the palate which is medium to full-bodied. Briary spice, black olive and cedary hints add to the complexity with a touch of new oak sweetness and silky tannins to add complexity to the fruity and velvety finish."

96/100 DWWA 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"A well made, heady and complex red with aromas of herbs and chocolate. Sexy and seductive, this is a very mouth-coating, rich and caramel-salty-style with supreme concentration and poise. Kudos."
