Product notes

This collection is Langmeil’s purist representation of premium regional wines which concentrate on those varieties that the Barossa does best. By supporting over forty local Barossa family growers, some of which are fifth and sixth generation Barossa growers that hail from many of the varied ‘Villages’ and sub-regions, we can in turn create regional Barossa blends that provide the winemaking team a cross section of developed flavour profiles to showcase. The 2019 Valley Floor Shiraz is medium to deep crimson with purple hues. A fine combination of hands-on winemaking and vineyard diversity results in pure Barossa Shiraz. This is why the Valley Floor Shiraz has received the Barossa Trust Mark.

Tasting notes

Rich and lifted aromas of Satsuma plum, mulberry and floral notes mingle with sweet spice, chocolate and savoury hints. Complex, medium to full bodied wine showing hints of mocha, bramble and vanilla. Rich, plumy fruit and sweet spice balanced by soft velvety tannins which flow through to the lengthy, fruity, peppery and spicy finish.

July 2023

Matured for 24 months in American oak (14% new) and seasoned American and French oak hogsheads. Magenta in the glass with aromas of blood plum, mulberry and boysenberry cut with baking spices, dark chocolate, almond blossom, white pepper, licorice and earth. Fruit-pure with fine, sandy tannins and a nice flow of plummy fruit on the finish.

March 2023

The 2020 Valley Floor is a blend of Shiraz with touches of Cabernet Sauvignon and Durif, delivering a rich meaty core of blackberry, licorice and tarry fruits. A big and chunky palate follows. A solid backbone of chewy tannins backs granite and earthy flavors with attractive meaty spices to finish.

September 2023

Plush, classic Barossa aromas of plum preserves, licorice, ground black pepper, chocolate and cedar flow to a round, almost glycerin-like palate. Textural, savory tannins knit together oodles of plump tangy plum fruit.
