Langmeil Barossa Orphan Bank shiraz

Deep crimson with purple hues.

Aroma: A rich bouquet of red and blue fruits, herbs and cedar, entwine with hints of sage, chocolate and savoury notes.

Palate: Rich and juicy raspberry and Satsuma plum fill the mouth, with allspice sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. The fruit is well balanced with hints of briary spice and textural, fine-grained tannins on the lengthy finish.


Destined for destruction to make way for housing, ten rows of 140 year old Shiraz vines were rescued by Langmeil and transplanted, thus preserving part of the Barossa heritage. These orphans are not without relatives. They share a common ancestory with the 1843 Freedom Vineyard, having been planted in the 1800’s on what was then the same allotment: Section 36, Hundred of Moorooroo. 146 years later the winery was able to reunite the flock and bring them home.
