Longview is a stunning family owned Australian vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills.

South Australia's Adelaide Hills is undoubtedly Australia's leading Sauvignon Blanc region and the team at Longview consistently produce one of the finest examples. This 2019 Longview Whippet Sauvignon Blanc displays all the hallmarks of top-class, cool-climate Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc; aromas of white flowers, cut grass and honeysuckle, and a palate packed with refreshing melon, gooseberry and mouth-watering acidity.

"Pale lemon-green colour. Approachable nose, creamy light tropical fruit with fresh blanched green asparagus/bean and crushed leaf notes, fragrant lemon/lime and passionfruit seed. A littler fuller than previous years through the front and mid palate but the acidity rips through like a bench saw. Good presence and persistence through the tight, puckering finish. RRP: $21 Alc: 13% Rating: 17/20" - Regan Drew, vinonotebook.com.

Vintage Notes: Spring rainfall was below average which helped disease control and provided dry conditions for the flowering period. This dry spell lingered through summer and with the expert water usage, helped us control vine vigour resulting in balanced canopies. From veraison through to harvest, the weather was very warm and dry, yet cool nights resulted in exceptional acid retention to balance fruit flavour development. Sauvignon Blanc was harvested between in late February, during the coolest part of the day and delivered to the winery immediately to preserve flavour.

Winemaking: The fruit was harvested, chilled to 10°C, the juice separated, and skins pressed. Bentonite fining and coarse earth filtering ensures a clear, bright finish.
