Langmeil Blacksmith Cabernet Sauvignon

In 1842 a 32-year-old Blacksmith, Christian Auricht, arrived from Prussia with his wife and four children. He settled in the new hamlet of Langmeil and built a blacksmith shop, around which grew the trading area of the village and provides the aesthetics for the winery to this day. The artisan of iron has now made way for the new craftsman who has blended the oldest of Barossa traditions to forge this spectacular wine. Langmeils  Cabernet Sauvignon, the unsung hero of Barossa wine, has been matured for almost two years, achieving the structure, depth and balance expected from this premium Australian grape growing region.

The Lindner family of Langmeil Winery has been immersed in the Barossa’s culture of farming, food, wine and community for six generations. Their commitment to quality in all aspects is unwavering and any wine that bears the Langmeil name represents the family’s pursuit of excellence in wine and community.

Bright and juicy berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and anise. Medium to full body with velvety, fine, grape and oak tannins add to the structure and flow onto the long, fruitful and spicy finish.


Winemaker’s Notes

A much-needed soaking winter and early spring rains led to a great start to the 2014 vintage. This didn’t last as late spring and early summer rain was nearly non-existent, adding to the flow on from the previous season’s drought. Yields were still below average, exacerbated by strong wind events during flowering and very hot conditions in January with 14 consecutive days over 40C. Vintage was looking like a hot, hard and fast one until mid-February, when the heavens opened up and dumped 90ml in the Barossa Valley and 150ml in Eden Valley. Concerns for crop loss were fortunately alleviated as there was minimal grape splitting in the whites and all the reds just said thank you very much. After a three-week delay for grapes to return to previous ripeness levels, the rest of vintage was mild - extending hang time for great flavour development and resulting in a calm and steady intake of great quality fruit. The nice weather broke midway through April and hindered our patience with late ripening Eden Valley Cabernet, so our last crush for the year was the 28th of April. Overall, a very good vintage with a few anxious moments thrown in. 

Paul Lindner, Chief Winemaker

Colour: Medium to deep crimson with purple hues.

Aroma: Lifted blueberries, black currants, and black olive dominate the aroma with lovely cedar and hints of sweet spice adding to the complexity.

Palate: Bright and juicy berry fruits coat the palate and mingle with brambly spice, hints of black olive and anise. Medium to full body with velvety, fine, grape and oak tannins add to the structure and flow onto the long, fruitful and spicy finish.

Cellaring: 2016 – 2026
