Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz – Langmeil’s original vineyard, the Freedom, was planted in 1843 and survives to this day. Planted by the Lutheran forebears who were escaping religious persecution and war in Prussia, just seven years after the state of South Australia was colonised. They came to their new homeland, from Persecution to Freedom, to worship and find peace in our beloved Barossa. The Freedom 1843 is testament to the best of the Barossa, and the determination and independent vision of the Bitter and Lindner families at Langmeil, who have farmed in the district for five generations.

Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz has the following characteristics.

Colour: Deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: An intense aroma of ripe Satsuma plum, mocha, vanilla and savoury notes, mingle with hints of cedar and sweet spices.
Palate: 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.

Freedom is the name of a remarkable patch of vines that have stood the test of time. Today, this vineyard underpins Langmeil’s and the Lindner family’s dedication to old vine preservation and winemaking.
Firmly planted at the heart of the historic winery site, this one-acre patch of gnarly and proud, dry-grown vines is believed to be the world’s oldest surviving shiraz vineyard planted in 1843.
Upon discovering this hidden treasure amongst the once derelict property, the vines were revived and dedicated to pioneer Christian Auricht who had fled his native Prussia for freedom from religious persecution. It was Auricht who settled the original Langmeil trading village in 1842, putting down his own roots in the Barossa soil and creating a home for his family, for generations to come. It is here that Auricht planted the Freedom vineyard as part of his mixed farm.
Predominantly planted on alluvial loam and red clay over limestone and ironstone, each vine’s roots penetrate deeply into the layers of quarry sand and gravel in the underlying water table of Barossa’s North Para River. In optimum vintages, it produces a low yielding crop of just two tonnes per acre.
From this vineyard Langmeil crafts a wine that sits at its pinnacle of winemaking, The Langmeil Freedom 1843 Shiraz.

Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon

Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon

Mollydooker Gigglepot Cabernet Sauvignon is a vibrant & elegant wine, full of personality. Forthright flavours of raspberry, briar and dried herbs develop into soft layers of mocha and mint on the palate. The nose has cherry & rhubarb notes with a hint of vanilla, complimented by delicate oak elements of toasted coconut and spice. The balance and intensity of the 2016 Gigglepot allows the true personality of McLaren Vale Cabernet Sauvignon to shine.

The Gigglepot is Sarah and Sparky’s daughter, Holly, who couldn’t stop giggling with these crazy black glasses on.

The grapes were grown on the Rivers Lane in McLaren Vale. Barrel fermented and matured in 84% American and 16% French oak using 50% new and 50% one year old barrels.

The winemaker recommends that everybody should do the Mollydooker shake. You can watch this on YouTube. According to the winemaker  “Pre-shaken the wines are intense, concentrated and still magnificent. However, after the shake the wine becomes more approachable, the aromatics are lifted and the fruit is smoother on the palate. An overall more enjoyable and total Mollydooker experience!” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCGFz3nnakE

Reviews

‘Deep purple-black and a little closed on the nose with very pure blackberry and plum preserves, some red fruit and floral highlights intermingled with menthol, espresso and a whiff of coconut and spices, the full-bodied 2012 Velvet Glove is a big, rich and concentrated wine with a great tannic backbone that is both firm and fine. It is complemented by refreshing acidity and a very long finish with the liquorice and chocolate coming through. Drink it now to 2025+.’ – Lisa Perrotti-Brown, www.erobertparker.com

Diana Madeline Cullen always liked the cooler seasons for Cabernet Sauvignon, especially the 1982. The cooler vintages make wines of great elegance and longevity.
The 1982 Cabernet Merlot (as it was known then) last day of harvest was the 22nd of April, versus the 12th of April for the 2017 vintage.
A great tribute to the biodynamic farming, shining even in the unusual vintages.

All Cullen Wines are grown on a certified Biodynamic, Carbon Neutral and naturally powered estate. Grapes are harvested by hand on fruit and flower days according to the astrological calendar. The wines have no additions of yeast, acid or malolactic culture, and are in this sense natural wines which express the place and land on which they are grown, the vintage and the people.

Red wine quality is defined to a large extent by the ripeness of tannin. The wine style is framed around these fine grained tannins coaxed from grapes grown on low yielding vines. This is the theme for all Cullen red wines and gives finesse, flavour and longevity.

Henschke Rose Grower Nebbiolo

Henschke Rose Grower Nebbiolo

Henschke Rose Grower Nebbiolo

Ruby red with garnet hues. Alluring aromas of wild red currant and raspberry, spiced cherry and Turkish delight with underlying nuances of rosehip, tobacco leaf and charcuterie. Surprisingly rich flavours of red cherry and wild strawberry with dried rosemary and spice complexity, sit upon a well-structured palate with a driving red currant acidity, enveloping core of fine-grained and creamy tannins, which persist for a beautifully long finish.

The nebbiolo grape originated in the Piedmont region of north-west Italy and is best known as the variety of Barolo and Barbaresco. It is believed that the name nebbiolo is derived from the Italian word nebbia, meaning fog. The Henschke nebbiolo vines have been planted on rocky soils on an elevated foggy north facing slope at the source of the North Para River, at the top of the range overlooking the village of Eden Valley. The wine is named after the pioneering Roesler family, who managed the property as a dairy for generations. In German, Roesler is an occupational name for ‘rose grower’.

“Matured for 10 months in used French hogsheads. This is a truly remarkable wine to arise from a vintage ravaged by rain (the wettest Feb in 44 years), and a record number of heat days over 40 degrees C in Feb, disease a constant problem. The silky, mouthwatering tannins (truly) run through cherry/watermelon/spice fruit on the delicious palate, which I would drink tonight”.                                          James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2019, August 2018
