"Old vine, Adelaide Plains grenache. Boy. Gosh. This is vivid. And plush. And exuberant. And about as delicious as they come. It has polish, it has raspberry and sweet spice flavours aplenty, and it’s juicy. It’s the kind of wine that will evoke a myriad of flavour descriptors but the net effect will be the same: it’s a wine of gorgeous drinkability. No hesitation. 92 Points Tasted: Oct20 Alcohol: 14.5% alc. $20 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2026+" - Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front.
"92 Points. Old-school grenache character with whole berries and part whole bunch, minimal plunging, on skins for just 6 days and finishing ferments in barrel. It's light and bright crimson in the glass, lifted with cherry fruit and garden herbs in its airs and palate. Medium bodied, simple, gluggable grenache. $20. 14.5% alc. Drink by 2024" - Tony Love, winecompanion.com.au.
Longhop is the impressive partnership of Domenic Torzi and Tim Freeland. The former Gawler high school mates seized upon an idea in 2002 of salvaging some of the last remaining old vine vineyards in the Adelaide Plains and making icon wines from that region.
Vineyards were secured, old vines a priority. Their small band of growers have embraced the ideal of delivering premium grapes in order to showcase the power and rich fruit flavours the Adelaide Plains and adjoining Mt Lofty Ranges has to offer.
The wines are made with minimal intervention and tradition techniques; open fermented and basket pressed. No fining or filtration is used prior to bottling.
