Important and Substantial Expression of Variety
Langdorf Barossa Valley Grenache 2013
Region: Barossa Valley, SA
Langdorf is the 'Seventh of Ten' of our 10th Anniversary Celebration new releases. I'm very excited by this wine as working with Grenache was one of the aims of Glug back in 2004.
Our sources of supply and our knowledge and feel for this variety now means we rank with the best makers of this variety. We have been fortunate that a hard core group of adventurous customers have drifted to Glug, and appreciate discoveries like this Langdorf.
Grenache found fame in Europe long ago and why it has been slow to gain momentum in Australia is a mystery. Grenache is ideally suited to our warm climate while fortunately the move from fortifieds over the period 1950s to 1980s left us with a rich heritage of under-appreciated old vines.
At last consumers are shifting as they in turn look to broaden their range of drinking experiences.
