The Langmeil Vineyards have a history which follows the arrival to Australia of the first Lutheran migrants from Hamburg in 1839. The first vineyards were established in 1843 and the original patch of Shiraz stills remains productive today. In the past the fortunes of Langmeil have waxed and waned with the economic times. In the 1930’s the property was known as Paradale and by the 1970’s the vineyards were taken over by Bernkaster Wines which remained in business until 1988 when it’s crushing operations ceased. By 1993 the cellar door was closed. The Langmeil revival came about in 1996 when three local businessmen, Richard and Carl Lindner and Chris Bitter purchased the property and began restoration. The fruit for the Orphan Bank is produced from 147 year old vines, transplanted from their original site which was destined for housing development, to a more fertile patch on the banks of the North Para River. The wine has been matured in 54% American and 46% French oak.
Opaque black crimson colour with black crimson hue. Perfumed nose of violets, blackberry,
vanilla and spice. The palate is superb, refined, showing layers of dark chocolate, black pepper and spice.
Totally mouthfilling. Liquorice background. Velvet smooth tannins. Very long aftertaste of blackberry, vanilla,
black pepper and liquorice allsorts.
