Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon

Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon

Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon – The artisan of iron has now made way for the new craftsman who has blended the oldest of Barossa traditions to forge this spectacular wine. This Cabernet Sauvignon, the unsung hero of Barossa wine, has been matured for 24 months, achieving the structure, depth and balance expected from this premium Australian grape growing region

Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon has the following characteristics

Colour: Medium to deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: Lifted blueberries, black currants, and black olive dominate the aroma with lovely cedar and hints of sweet spice adding to the complexity.
Palate: Bright and juicy berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and anise. Medium to full body with velvety, fine, grape and oak tannins add to the structure and flow onto the long, fruitful and spicy finish.
Cellaring: 2016 – 2026

Vintage: A much needed soaking winter and early spring rains led to a great start to the 2014 vintage. This didn’t last as late spring and early summer rain was nearly non-existent, adding to the flow on from the previous season’s drought. Yields were still below average, exacerbated by strong wind events during flowering and very hot conditions in January with 14 consecutive days over 40C. Vintage was looking like a hot, hard and fast one until mid-February, when the heavens opened up and dumped 90ml in the Barossa Valley and 150ml in Eden Valley. Concerns for crop loss were fortunately alleviated as there was minimal grape splitting in the whites and all the reds just said thank you very much. After a three-week delay for grapes to return to previous ripeness levels, the rest of vintage was mild – extending hang time for great flavour development and resulting in a calm and steady intake of great quality fruit. The nice weather broke midway through April and hindered our patience with late ripening Eden Valley Cabernet, so our last crush for the year was the 28th of April. Overall, a very good vintage with a few anxious moments thrown in

Langmeil

“Family owned and operated, Langmeil is the home of the Barossa and Australia’s oldest surviving vineyard planted to Shiraz in 1843, from where the iconic Freedom 1843 Shiraz hails.
Although it is not that many vintages since the Bitter and Lindner families re-established the abandoned winery, Langmeil has had considerable success and was recently awarded 5 Stars in the Halliday Wine Companion.

South Australia

The Barossa Valley is one of the major regions in Australia, where many of the major wine companies are based. It is believed the first vineyards were planted in the 1840s by Silesian migrants (who settled in Bethany). There followed a rapid expansion of plantations. The early styles of wines produced were heavy dry red wines and fortified wines that were popular both domestically and in Britain. After the Second World War the styles shifted to lighter table wines with production of Chardonnay, Riesling, Semillon, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. The Barossa Valley is home to some very well known names such as Seppelt, Wolf Blass and Penfolds as well as many smaller producers. The climate is Mediterranean with hot dry summers and cool wet winters, making it ideal for viticulture. The main wine styles: White – Semillon, Riesling, Chardonnay, Semillon-Chardonnay blend; Red – Shiraz (full bodied & ripe) with Old Vine Shiraz a speciality of many vineyards, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Shiraz-Grenache-Mataro blend, Cabernet-Merlot blend.
