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 the developer's bulldozer and replanted alongside the original Langmeil vineyard on the banks of the River Para. They called these ten rows the "Orphans" but after 150 years they have a new home.

The aroma boasts intense and lifted perfumes of blue fruits, violets and chocolate, entwined with hints of sage, cedar and white peppery spice. Juicy raspberries and Satsuma plum fills the mouth, with lovely oak sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. The fruit is wonderfully balanced with briary and white pepper spice and textured, fine tannin.
