Langmeil Orphan Bank Shiraz
Deep crimson with purple hues. A rich aroma of red and blue fruits, herbals and cedar, entwine with hints of sage, chocolate and savoury notes. Juicy Raspberry and Satsuma plum fills the mouth, with oak sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. Sweet fruit is well balanced with briary spice and textured, fine tannin.
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. The history of Langmeil‘s Lindner family paints a rich portrait of farming, food, community and wine which can be traced back six generations to the central European region known as Silesia.Johann Gottlob Lindner and his wife, Maria Rosine John, first arrived on the shores of South Australia to settle in the Barossa Valley in 1845.An ancestor of Johan and Maria is fifth generation, Richard Lindner, who with his wife Shirley Della-Mina and sons Paul and James, are the current custodians of Langmeil Winery.
