Langmeil Rough Diamond Grenache 2022


Winemaker’s Notes
Grenache has long been held in high esteem by Barossa winemakers. Despite being overlooked elsewhere due to a workhorse history, it has hidden depths and great potential. Like a Rough Diamond, ordinary at first glance, its real beauty as a jewel is only revealed through cutting and polishing.

A great start to the year with healthy winter rains followed by a mild spring led to optimism about the up-and-coming harvest. However, as so often with farming, Mother Nature had other plans. On 28th October, a 15-minute hailstorm tore a massive strip of devastation through the Barossa, with crop losses of between 30% to 100% I had to wear earmuffs in the shed to stop my ears from bleeding: it was that loud.

After the storm, the remainder of the growing and ripening season was mild to cool, enabling plenty of hang time on the vine for great flavour and colour development.

Harvest ran smoothly, starting and finishing later than usual with our Eden Valley Cabernet Sauvignon picked in early May. It’s another cracking cooler vintage.

Aromas of lifted black cherry, raspberry and rose petal with hints of sweet spice and white pepper. Sweet, juicy fruits flows through the palate which is light to medium-bodied. The red berries are balanced nicely by brambly, peppery spice and soft tannins which continue through the long and fruity finish.
