2017 Langmeil Three Gardens Grenache Shiraz Mataro

Even though my memory may not serve me well these days, I cannot remember having a Langmeil wine.  I went onto their website and the history of this family is pretty special.  The first Shiraz vines were planted in 1843 and are the source of the fruit for The Freedom 1843 Shiraz.  Now into the sixth generation and still going strong, from what I read, there is no intention of the Lindner family slowing down either that’s for sure.

A very attractive deep cherry red colour.  Smells fresh, bright and juicy and it’s no different on the palate.  A delicious bunch of dark and red fruits, some red cherry freshness, savoury notes, and just a dash of white pepper rounds it out beautifully.  Tannins have been well tamed and you would not pick the 14.5% alcohol.

It’s a blend of 50% Grenache and 25% each of Shiraz and Mataro but I don’t think that matters especially when you take your first sip.  You’ll immediately take a second one and be lured into the charm this wine has.  It was certainly popular with the group it was shared with.  This is a bargain at this price so, if I can offer one piece of advice, find it and buy it.  Simple as that really.
