LANGMEIL ORPHAN BANK SHIRAZ BAROSSA VALLEY

Langmeil produce this wine from rescued vines of over 140 years old. These were set to be ripped up and destroyed for development land, but Langmeil stepped in and arduously transplanted them one-by-one to their vineyards, knowing the fruit that they bore, was some of the best in the Barossa.

This wine is aged for 2 years in seasoned French and American oak and has a complex perfumed nose of black fruits and spice, while the palalte if full bodied with velvety texture and fine tannins.
 



James Halliday: 94 points

A successful blend of a majority of Barossan fruit, together with a good percentage of Eden Valley material, this cuvee hails from vines in excess of 70yo. Massaged by the whims of time across 24 months in French hogsheads, a solid percentage new, this wine exhibits full throttled dried, dark fruit aromas sewn to a toasty veneer of vanilla pod and coconut notes. Tar, bitter chocolate, anise and cardamon, all wait in the wings. A waft of barbecue infers barrel fermentation, yet the overall impression is of latent power, in an inimitable and traditional Barossa mould.

Lisa Perotti-Brown for Robert Parker: 91+

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2014 Shiraz Orphan Bank opens with red and black plum notes plus hints of garrigue, underbrush, black pepper, cedar and dried Mediterranean herbs. The medium-bodied palate is finely crafted, delivering youthful red and black fruit notes and an herbal lift, finishing fine and fresh
