Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz is made from grapes sourced from Langmeil’s original vineyard, the Freedom Vineyard, which was planted in 1843 and survives to this day. These are believed to be the some of the oldest and rarest Shiraz vines in the world. The vineyard was planted by German settler Christian Auricht whose Lutheran family was escaping religious persecution and war in Prussia, just seven years after the state of South Australia was colonised. It is located in the banks of the North Para River adjacent to Langmeil’s modern winery.
Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz has always been vinified separately from all their other Shiraz. The old, gnarled, low-yielding dry grown vines are situated on alluvial loam and red clay over limestone and ironstone soils. The roots descend over 15 metres into the soil and the yield is a tiny 10 hl/ha. All the grapes for Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz are carefully hand picked and destemmed prior to a relatively cool fermentation in open tanks for 7 days with twice daily pumping over before basket pressing. The wine is aged for 24 months in 69% new and 31% old French oak Hogsheads and Barriques prior to blending and bottling.
In May 2014, The Freedom 1843 Shiraz joined the prestigious Langton’s Classification VI honour roll in the category of ‘Excellent’.
Deep crimson with purple hues. An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes, mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spices. Rich, sweet fruit is balanced wonderfully with briary and sweet spices and lovely, silky tannins. A full-bodied, textured wine showing great complexity with hints of cedar and allspice and in combination, flow through to the lengthy, brambly fruit finish."
