Langmeil Jackaman's Cabernet Sauvignon

Langmeil Jackaman’s Cabernet Sauvignon

Langmeil Jackaman’s Cabernet Sauvignon

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.

The Jackaman’s vineyard is home to 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.
Aged for 25 months in a combination of new (36%) and second fill (64%) French oak hogsheads the Jackaman’s Cabernet Sauvignon displays lifted aromas of blackcurrants and blueberries that entwine with biscuity French oak, minty hints and savoury, black olive notes. Bright, juicy, blue fruits flow onto the palate which is medium to full-bodied. Spice, black olive and minty hints add to the complexity with a touch of oak sweetness and silky tannins to lengthen the fruity and velvety finish.

1 acre Jackaman’s Cabernet Sauvignon vineyard was planted in 1964 on a site consisting of darker loam and produces a harvest of 1-1.5 tonne. Of note, it was Arthur Jackaman’s foresight to plant Cabernet Sauvignon at the time which helped kick start an era that changed the Barossa’s focus from fortified winemaking to table wines.
The wonderful diversity of soil profiles makes our Lyndoch vineyard an ideal property for the planting of a range of varieties, including Shiraz and Viognier.

Capturing the distinctive hallmarks of Barossa’s rich viticultural landscape lies at the foundation of each Langmeil wine made with dedication and an individual style. Langmeil Jackaman’s Cabernet Sauvignon is a great example of this

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.
