In The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, the oldest Shiraz vines in the world that are still producing today probably come from Langmeil -Founder Christian Auricht personally planted it in 1843. He once fled from war and religious persecution from Silesia to the Barossa Valley in Australia and found his freedom here, hence the name “The Freedom 1843”.

Of course, dead vines have been replaced over the years, meaning that the vines for this wine have an average age of a whopping 125 years. The mini-yield from these old vines leads to a highly concentrated and aromatically very complex top-class wine, which is one of Australia's wine icons.

There are currently no reviews about the Freedom 2021, hence the one from its predecessor, simply to show the dimension in which this wine is on the move: Decanter magazine has a euphoric 97/100 points and is impressed by the quote: "intense concentration of power". This outstanding vintage came with 45% new French barriques and 55% used French barrels. The resulting noble wood influence is complemented by fruit aromas of ripe blackberries, spices and cedar wood. On the palate it is extremely powerful, complex and playful, and the length in the finale is impressive. A very special wine.
