Langmeil 1843 Freedom Shiraz 2010

95+ points - "Deep garnet-purple in color and intensely scented of blueberry preserves, mulberries, and stewed plums with hints of Christmas cake, smoked bacon, tar, potpourri and sandalwood, the 2010 The Freedom 1843 Shiraz is a voluptuously fruited, full-bodied wine offering an abundance of evolving blackberry and savory flavors supported by firm, rounded tannins and enlivening acid. It finishes with excellent persistence. Drink it now to 2025+." Lisa Perrotti-Brown, eRobertParker.com, 1 March 2014

98 points - "The name refers to the vineyard the grapes came from which is 167 years old. These are some of the oldest shiraz vines in the world, due reverence needs to be paid to that fact alone. A delightful mushroom, faintly horse stable pongy nose lifts expectation before the first taste. On the palate the wine is just as the nose suggests a little on the wild side, which is a relief from over ripe shiraz. It's no pushover at 15% alcohol but it carries well and the extremely long after taste is where all the excitement is. This continues giving pleasure long after swallowing. 98 points and worth $100." Tony Keys, The Key Review of Wine, September 2013

96 points - "Created from the world’s oldest existing shiraz vines; there is profound restraint and depth of character on the bouquet, with dark fruits, fresh pitch and charry oak on display; the palate is lively and fresh, with vibrant acidity and silky fine-grained tannins providing an even and fine conclusion." Ben Edwards, James Halliday's Australian Wine Companion 2014, 10 July 2013

Langmeil 1843 Freedom Shiraz 2012

"A standout at this level is the Langmeil The Freedom 1843 Shiraz from the fabulous 2012 vintage, its old vine sources including original plantings from 1843, thought to be among the oldest shiraz vines in the world. The wine is totally engaging with evocative smells of crushed rocks and crumbled earth entwined with its generously sweet, luscious fruits. It passes the lips gracefully and lingers without a ripple. Spectacular." Click here to download presenter. Tony Love, The Advertiser, 18-19 April 2015

95 points - "Beautiful name for a wine. Grown on 169 year old vines. Two years in French oak. The power and the glory of Barossa Shiraz. Neither thick nor syrupy and yet power and presence personified. Cherry plum and blackberry with toasty, sawdusty oak woven throughout. It's not flashy yet it commands attention. Firm tannin comes drenched in fruit. It's one for the cellar and yet its drinkability is high." Click here to download presenter. Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front, April 2015
