From top to bottom, Langmeil—run by brothers Paul (winemaking) and James (sales and marketing) Lindner—is hitting on all cylinders…, Hangin' Snakes, Three Gardens and Offspring, represent great values, while even the very top-end stuff, The Freedom 1843 and Pure Eden Shirazes, are reasonably priced in the context of old-vine, cellar-worthy Barossa reds. These are big, bold wines that don't skimp on flavor or texture yet show a remarkable amount of elegance and nuance.
