Langmeil Shiraz Orphan Bank 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little pencil lead leads off the rather fudgy and ripe on the nose which picks up notes of violet pastille, mineral and wood spice with air. On entry this is very smooth and polished. Round opulent and mouth filling, this is as lush a wine as I can take but at the same time it’s deep and relatively fresh with raspberry tinged fruit on the palate. It’s a spicy fruit with oak well integrated but still fruity especially on the finish which is saved by the appearance of a little dry, powdery tannin on the finish, which cuts things short but helps to add some texture to the wine. 91pts

Family owned and operated, Langmeil is the home of the Barossa and Australia’s oldest known surviving vineyard planted to Shiraz in 1843, from where the iconic Freedom 1843 Shiraz hails. Since 1996 when the Bitter and Lindner families re-established the abandoned winery, Langmeil has had considerable success and has been awarded 5 stars in the Halliday Wine Companion six years in succession, placing it in the top 5% of premium Australian producers. Without contradiction, Langmeil wines are ‘cutting edge old school’ quality Barossa wine. Read less
