  • Tasting notes

    Dark cherry, raspberry fruits and a eucalyptus lift combine with sweet spices and hints of vanilla, adding to the complexity. Juicy red berries and dark cherries flow through the palate, melting into lovely sweet and briary spices. The finish lingers on a fruitful and spicy note with typical chalky yet fine-grained tannins.

  • Viticultural notes

    For the first time, a parcel of Shiraz was nearly booked in for the end of January. Fortunately, timely rain and mild conditions delayed the start of vintage, allowing flavour and colour to catch up with sugar levels. With the dry winter and a slightly warmer spring, favourable flowering and fruit set, yields were generally little above average. This was followed by mild, late summer weather, both growers and winemakers were happy to see another solid vintage tucked away.

    Perfumed nose of violets and cedar. Very refreshing on the palate with lovely brightness with a delicious after taste.

    Langmeil's 2016 Fifth Wave Grenache is a perfect example of why this grape variety has developed such a following in South Australia (and around the world). It's open, friendly and engaging, with hints of Mediterranean herbs, cola-like spice notes and oodles of raspberry fruit. Full-bodied and supple, it finishes mouthwatering and long. It's a joy to drink.
