Langmeil 2010 Orphan Bank Shiraz

Here's a wine for those who like their reds on bigger side of the spectrum; more bulldozer than go kart. Orphan Bank is a testament to Langmeil's commitment to preserving old and rare Barossa vineyards. Ten rows of shiraz planted pre-1860 were saved from a developer's clutches and replanted alongside the original Langmeil vineyard on the banks of the River Para. Deep and inky in colour, this is a rich and powerful wine with sweet fruit, spice and impressive tannins that suggest it will cellar well. $50.
