Langmeil Pure Eden Shiraz 2017
A medium to full-bodied wine with juicy Satsuma plum and raspberry fruits with plenty of velvety tannins adding structure and texture to the wine. Sweet and briary spices balance the juicy fruit with a subtle cedar note carrying through to the finish. Cellaring: 2019-2034 .
Robert Parker – Wine Advocate
Pure Eden is a single site wine, made from an Eden Valley vineyard planted by Charles Angas in the 1890s. Later owned by the Shiltons 1911 -1926; Meakins 1926-1929; Roeslers 1929-1961; Andretzkes 1961-2011 and now the Lindner family. This wine is a reward of these guardians’ efforts for more than one hundred years.
Scorched bay leaf, roasted meat, espresso—the 2017 Pure Eden Shiraz is the most savory of the vintages I’ve had the chance to taste. It’s medium to full-bodied but firmly structured, almost corseted, if you will, into a tight sheath of firm tannins that turn dusty on the lingering finish. It’s concentrated and complex but far from charming. Give it at least a few more years of cellaring.
