Langmeil Orphan Bank Shiraz 2019 Red Wine – Barossa, Australia
2019 was the smallest vintage in twenty years due to a drier than average growing season with spring frosts. What little fruit there was ripened quickly in the hot, dry conditions of January and February, with a mad rush to pick before sugar levels became excessive. On the plus side, the lack of rainfall meant there was no disease pressure this season. The reds will be bold, dark, rich and long-lived. Sadly, they will be in very short supply.
Colour: Medium to deep crimson with purple hues.
Aroma: A rich bouquet of red and blue fruits, herbs and cedar, entwine with hints of sweet spice, roasted and savoury notes.
Palate: Rich and juicy raspberry and Satsuma plum fill the mouth, with allspice sweetness adding to the mouthfeel. The fruit is well balanced with hints of briary spice and textural, fine-grained tannins on the lengthy finish.
Food match: Rabbit stifado; pork or duck roast; mushroom risotto; roasted vegetable tartlet; matured cheese platter.
