Longview is a stunning family owned Australian vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of classic old world estates, it has quickly established itself as one the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001. Longview Vineyard is a little warmer than other Adelaide Hills' sites but its wines are still decidedly cool climate in style showing restraint and finesse without sacrificing depth.
Beautifully balanced Cabernet full of gorgeous blueberry and blackcurrant fruit, it delivers amazing purity and depth of flavour. We have tasted very few Cabernets from anywhere that are as good as this! Match with rib-eye steak in pepper sauce.
Varietal: Cabernet Sauvignon
Yakka Shiraz is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked to minimize fruit damage, fermented on skins for 7 to 10 days in open fermenters. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in old and new French Oak Barriques for 18 months.
The newly released 2014 vintage of Longview Yakka Shiraz is again in fine form; leaping from the glass with vibrant fruit flavours, chocolate and nice restrained oak, if finishes with impressive balance and length.
