Longview's Yakka Shiraz is sourced entirely from the Longview vineyard at Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. These are high quality vineyard are also the source of some of the grape for Shaw and Smith's Shiraz.

Yakka Shiraz has become a remarkably consistent performer over the past decade and become a favourite for those seeking high quality Shiraz drinking at a more than reasonable price. The newly released 2015 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.

"Matured for 15 months in old and new French barriques, the wine displays vibrant blue fruits, spice, flavours of dark chocolate and coffee. This elegant, cool-climate shiraz is medium bodied, and finishes with a delicious vanillin length and velvety texture. Like the Yakka, it is dramatic and structured and will thrive in most occasions." - Longview Wines

Our Yakka is named after the hardy Xanthorrhoea flowering plant which is ubiquitous in Australia and found around Longview's perimeter.

Matured for 15 months in old and new French barriques, the wine displays vibrant blue fruits, spice, flavours of dark chocolate and coffee. This elegant, cool-climate shiraz is medium bodied, and finishes with a delicious vanillin length and velvety texture. Like the Yakka, it is dramatic and structured and will thrive in most occasions.

Our Yakka is as complex as the plant we’ve named it after and, whilst excellent to drink now, it will also benefit with 10+ years cellaring.- Longview Wines
