Longview Yakka Shiraz

Longview Yakka Shiraz 2016

Adelaide Hills, South Australia   |    750ml   |    14.5%

Longview's Yakka Shiraz has been a remarkably consistent performer over the past decade and become a favourite for those seeking a high quality Adelaide Hills Shiraz at a very reasonable price. The 2016 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.

"95 Points. You can't help but admire the integration of sweet, sawdusty French oak with black- cherried fruit and assorted spice and woody herbs. Plum flavours add yet more flesh to sink into; smoke notes a bit of fantasy; velvety texture the cushion ok which it's all propped. It's a wonderful red to settle in with. 14.% alc" - Campbell Mattinson, Halliday Cellaring Selections, June/ July 2018.

"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
