The Langmeil Vineyards have a history which follows the arrival to Australia of the first Lutheran migrants from Hamburg in 1839. The first vineyards were established in 1843 and the original patch of Shiraz stills remains productive today. In the past the fortunes of Langmeil have waxed and waned with the economic times. In the 1930’s the property was known as Paradale and by the 1970’s the vineyards were taken over by Bernkaster Wines which remained in business until 1988 when it’s crushing operations ceased. By 1993 the cellar door was closed. The Langmeil revival came about in 1996 when three local businessmen, Richard and Carl Lindner and Chris Bitter purchased the property and began restoration. The Valley Floor Shiraz is a blend of new and old Shiraz vines from the Barossa Valley’s floor. Grapes are sourced from specially selected vineyards across all the sub regions of the Barossa from a range of 120, 70, 50 year old and younger select parcels which are then open fermented and basket pressed. Maturation takes place in a combination of 27% new and 73% seasoned American oak for 12 months. Tasting note....
Opaque black dark purple colour with dark purple crimson hue. The nose shows good intensity with top notes of ripe blackberry and dark plum followed by some mocha and vanilla scents. Full bodied and possessing an opulent texture the palate delivers fleshy flavours of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla and spice. Velvet smooth tannins. Very long aftertaste of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, liquorice and vanillin spice.
