Producer Langmeil is one of the Barossa’s great modern success stories, although its recent achievements are built on ancient roots. The first vines were planted on the estate in 1843 by a German settler, Christian Auricht, and a winery was in operation here from 1932 to 1988. The property was bought in 1996 by the local Lindner and Bitter families, and they set about meticulously restoring both its buildings and its reputation. Amazingly, the 1843 vines are still alive and producing; they are believed to be the oldest Shiraz vines in the world. Vineyard The grapes for Blacksmith came from a number of Barossa vineyards ranging in age from fifteen to thirty-five years old, and on both black cracking clay and red clay over limestone soils. The grapes were picked parcel by parcel throughout March and into early April. Winery Each vineyard was individually fermented. The wine was then matured for twenty-four months in French oak hogsheads, with fifteen percent new wood.
