"Orphan Bank" - Australian wine from the Barossa Valley. Part of Shiraz vines, planted back in 1860, were rescued from the uprooting and transplanted into the land owned by Langmeil. They were called "orphan" or orphans. The exceptional quality of the grapes, fertile soil, ideal weather conditions provide an excellent crop of Shiraz, which reflects the unique features of the terroir. The berries are harvested by hand. After fermentation, the wine is left to mature in French oak barrels for two years. At the peak of ripeness vintage 2012 will be from 2014 to 2029.
Eighties of the XX century were very difficult for the wine industry in Australia. Export sales accounted for less than 20% of the total production, and the industry was faced with a surplus of grapes. South Australian Government has submitted a program under which producers pay for the removal of unwanted vines. In 1988 the company "Bernkastel" has been eliminated, and until 1996 the winery was not functioning. In 1996, three comrades - Richard and Carl Lindner and Chris Bitter, whose family for several generations lived in the Barossa, acquired the winery and resumed production under the name Langmeyl. Today the company is a leading manufacturer of premium wines in Australia.
