Their winemaking philosophy is simple; wines made honestly and simply that challenge but more importantly speak of their vineyard origin.
Paul has made wine for a range of highly respected wineries including Wirra Wirra Vineyards and Hardys Tintara, in McLaren Vale and internationally with Domaine de la Janasse in Chateauneuf- du- Pape, Archery Summit in Oregon and Chateau du Bluizard in Beaujolais. LongLine Wines was formed in 2012.
Sourced from the Blewitt Springs subregion of McLaren Vale known for producing more elegant and fragrant styles of McLaren Vale red wines. Two dry grown vineyards in tiny parcels have been fermented individually in open fermenters, hand plunged with extended time on skins to produce savory and complex wines with fine structural tannins. Matured in large format seasoned French oak for 8 months prior to blending and bottling in December of 2017.
The colour is brilliant red with purple hue. The bouquet of lifted red fruits of ripe berries and dark plum with subtle notes of fresh herb, spice and savory notes of prosciutto and freshly tilled earth. The palate is soft and moreish with abundant bright red fruits and juicy fruits of blueberry and ripe dark plum. Savory mouth coating fine tannins complete the palate.
