The probably oldest Shiraz vines in the world that are still in production today go into The Freedom 1843 Shiraz, presumably from Langmeil -Founder Christian Auricht personally planted in 1843. This once fled from war and religious persecution from Silesia to the Barossa Valley in Australia and found freedom here, hence the name "The Freedom 1843".

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

The Langmeil Freedom of the 2020 vintage is one of the largest wines of this icon bottled to date. The magazine Decanter has a euphoric 97/100 points and is impressed by the quote: "intense concentration of power". This superb vintage was 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. On the palate it is extremely powerful, complex and playful, the length in the final is impressive. A very special wine.
