LANGMEIL LANGMEIL - The Freedom 1843 Shiraz - 2016

LANGMEIL The Freedom 1843 Shiraz 2016

See the wine detail page

97 Points

Langmeil's 2016 The Freedom 1843 Shiraz comes out of the chute with smoky notes of grilled meat and cracked pepper, which serve to balance the wine's bold boysenberry fruit, ample body and rich, creamy tannins. Full-bodied and supple, it's not unapproachable, but it should be better in a couple of years and should drink well for another 10-15 after that. Complex, layered and seductive, it's a compelling example of Barossa Shiraz.
