"The palate is fresh - lemon fruit hovers over an ethereal, mineral-driven and textural finish. A wine that speaks as much of place as it does the variety. Quite delicious" Nick Butler - The Real Review
About this Wine
Gold Medal Royal Hobart Wine Show '19
"95 points, Gold Ribbon, Top Rank, Top Value" "Pale yellow colour and screaming of its youth. Lemons and limes, bath salts and citrus blossom. The palate is fresh - lemon fruit hovers over an ethereal, mineral-driven and textural finish. A wine that speaks as much of place as it does the variety. Quite delicious" Nick Butler, The Real Review, Sept '19
"Hand-picked from Block 14, crushed, pressed and cool-fermented. The fruit does all the talking, and does so fluently. Classic citrus sorbet with lime and lemon each contributing the power for the long palate. A steal." 93pts - James Halliday - Wine Companion
About the Winery
Longview is a stunning, family-owned Adelaide Hills single vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of old world estates but with a clear Australian accent, it has quickly established itself as one of the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001.
The original vineyards are now 20yr+ in age although plantings of the 'alternative varieties' (Barbera, Gruner Veltliner, Pinot Grigio) are somewhat younger. Winemaking is overseen by Ben Glaetzer in close consultation with owners Peter and Mark Saturno.
