The centerpiece for Langmeil's Orphan Bank Shiraz are 10 rows of ancient Shiraz vines on the banks of the River Para, which were planted before 1860. These were rescued from clearing a few years ago and replanted near their original location. There are also other first-class vineyards in the Barossa Valley and Eden Valley, which means that the average age of the Orphan Bank vines for the excellent 2019 vintage drops to a still very impressive 70+ years.

The result is a tremendous Shiraz with enormous depth and complexity, the best use of barriques and a never-ending aftertaste. It smells intensely of raspberries and plums and shows its spicy fullness in the scent. Awesome!

In Robert Parker's Wine Advocate there is a whopping 94+/100 for the 2019 Langmeil Orphan Bank. Taster Erin Larkin loves the wine's juicy yet polished style. The wine is characterized by ripe raspberries and exotic spice aromas, the tannins are refined in this beautiful wine.
