Winemaker Notes

2019 was the smallest vintage in twenty years due to a drier than average growing season with spring frosts. What little fruit there was ripened quickly in the hot, dry conditions of January and February, with a mad rush to pick before sugar levels became excessive. On the plus side, the lack of rainfall meant there was no disease pressure this season. The reds will be bold, dark, rich and long-lived. Sadly, they will be in very short supply.

Light to medium depth crimson with purple hues. Dark cherry, raspberry and brambly spice mingle with hints of sweet oak and savoury notes adding to the complexity. Juicy red berries and dark cherries flow through the palate, with the soft, sweet fruit balancing with pepper and briary spices. The finish lingers on a fruity and spicy note with typical chalky yet fine-grained tannins. 

Pairing: Slow cooked lamb shanks; crispy skin salmon; roast pork or duck; dark chocolate. 

Vineyard Notes

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 1973 and serves as a call to arms, to preserve, promote and protect the best of the Barossa as well as an oft overlooked variety

Blend: 100% Grenache
