Description

Langmeil The Fifth Wave Grenache is a superb 100% Grenache produced from old vine grown fruit in the Barossa Valley.

Langmeil, the winery, is named after the village where it is located, has some of the oldest Shiraz vines in existence in the Barossa Valley. Whilst the Barossa is synonymous with full-bodied Shiraz, its Cabernet Sauvignon equally can produce wines of intense flavour and body. In 1843 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 smithy, around which grew the trading centre of the village. 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. After a period where the winery was known as Paradale and then Bernkastel Wines, the cellar door was closed in 1933, but then re-opened by long-term Barossa residents, the Lindner and Bitter families who bought the property in 1996. The Lindner family who own Langmeil Winery have been immersed in the Barossa’s culture of farming, food, wine and community for six generations.

The Fifth Wave is Langmeil’s most treasured Old Vine Garden Grenache and is dedicated to the fifth generation of the Lindner family. The vineyard was planted in the middle of the last century, it was once a neglected Old Vine Garden in Lyndoch, The Fifth Wave vineyard was rejuvenated by Langmeil and in 1999 winemaker Paul Lindner saw the potential of the Grenache from this unique vineyard and with tenacity convinced the owners to produce a straight varietal, in all likelihood the first time Grenache from this time honoured Old Vine Garden had been truly prized. The vines here are dry-grown, low-yielding and extremely intense.

Langmeil The Fifth Wave Grenache was matured for 18 months in 83% old American oak and 17% old French oak

Tasting Notes

From Langmeil:

Colour: Medium depth crimson with pink hues.

Aroma: Dark cherry and raspberry fruits mingle with sweet spice, vanilla and hints of chocolate with a little menthol lift.

Palate: Ripe, red berry and dark cherry flows onto the palate, melding into lovely sweet and briary spice. The finish lingers on a fruitful, chocolate and spicy note with typical chalky yet fine tannin.
