Langmeil Orphan Bank Shiraz

Langmeil Orphan Bank Shiraz


Regular price $75.00 Sale


"Orphan Bank is testament to LangmeilÕs commitment to preserving old and rare Barossa vineyards. Ten rows of Shiraz planted pre-1860 were saved from the developerÕs bulldozer and replanted alongside the original Langmeil vineyard on the banks of the North Para River. We called these ten rows the ÒOrphansÓ, but after 150 years they have a new home."

Tasting Note

"The 2018 Orphan Bank Shiraz offers up scents of red raspberries and blueberries alongside hints of mint. The oak (all French oak hogsheads, 47% new) is well-balanced and integrated into the wine, barely noticeable in this full-bodied beauty. Supple and charming, it's a very pretty ShirazÑmaybe not the biggest or baddest beastÑbut remarkably elegant and long-lasting on the finish. " - The WIne Advocare
