Langmeil Shiraz Freedom Barossa 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

[ T H E S T O R Y ] The Barossa Region is known for its viticulture and wine making. At its heart is the Valley Floor, a rich strip of land exposed to the driest conditions and home to some of the most select Shiraz vineyards of the area. [ W I N E A N A L Y S I S ] Alcohol Volume: 14.9% TA: 6.61g/L pH: 3.43 VA: 0.53 g/L Residual Sugar: 2.2 g/L [ W I N E M A K I N G N O T E S ] The ‘Valley Floor’, like other premium wines of the Barossa, is a regional blended wine. Grapes are sourced from specially selected vineyards across all the sub regions of the Barossa from a range of 120, 70, 50 and younger select parcels of which are then open fermented and basket pressed to make this classic example of honest, hand made Barossa Valley Shiraz. Enjoy now or over the next ten years. 20% new American Oak and 80% old American Oak. COLOUR • Very deep crimson with purple hues. NOSE • Lifted aromas of Raspberry and Satsuma Plum are complimented by Fine Milk Chocolate, Vanilla and hints of Butter, Roasty and Smokey nuances PALATE • Sweet Primary Fruits transfer to the palate which is full and well balanced with Briary Spice and Fine but Firm American Oak Tannins. The finish is very Long and Fruitful yet Youthfully A

Family owned and operated, Langmeil is the home of the Barossa and Australia’s oldest known surviving vineyard planted to Shiraz in 1843, from where the iconic Freedom 1843 Shiraz hails.
