Deep red/purple colour. Aromas of vanilla, chocolate and cranberry, some leather and tar notes; concentrated and dense, fleshy and smooth-textured, velvety and sumptuous. Full-bodied, deep and plush, with no excesses albeit it's an unabashedly full-bodied red. - Huon Hooke Once a trading village established in 1842, this remarkable place is a captivating pocket of Australia’s wine and vine history that is a must when visiting the Barossa. Langmeil produce this wine from rescued vines of over 140 years old. Juicy raspberries and Satsuma plum fill the mouth, with lovely oak sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. The fruit is wonderfully balanced with briary and white pepper spice and textured fine tannin.

Powerful juicy wine, but with plenty of tannin slipped under the covers to keep it tucked in tight. Cherry, raspberry, aniseed, sage and toast. Intensity. Succulence. Length. It’s very good.

A successful blend of a majority of Barossan fruit, together with a good percentage of Eden Valley material, this cuvee hails from vines in excess of 70yo. Massaged by the whims of time across 24 months in French hogsheads, a solid percentage new, this wine exhibits full throttled dried, dark fruit aromas sewn to a toasty veneer of vanilla pod and coconut notes. Tar, bitter chocolate, anise and cardamon, all wait in the wings. A waft of barbecue infers barrel fermentation, yet the overall impression is of latent power, in an inimitable and traditional Barossa mould.
