"Value Plus" - Gary Walsh
Longhop is the impressive partnership of Domenic Torzi and Tim Freeland; designed to showcase what the Adelaide Plains and adjoining Mt Lofty Ranges has to offer. Sourcing precious old vine survival plantings of the 1950's, coupled with non-interventional approach to winemaking, Longhop have become known for consistently delivering expressive, generous and full-flavoured wines at some impressive prices.
This 2019 Longhop Grenache is another delicious red wine from the team at Longhop. Typically approachable in its youth, this offers lively flavours of dark cherry, raspberry, plum and dried herb. Offering impressive balance and depth this finishes with gentle tannin and supple spice.
"A strong showing from these 50 something year old vines in 2019. Plum and raspberry, dried herbs and spice, and in some ways it comes over like a larger framed Pinot Noir, or so I think. Medium bodied, ginger snap biscuits and mixed berries, a little savoury sage and meaty thing happening, fine firm sweep of tannin, and a succulent red fruited finish of good length. Such a pleasing wine. Value plus. 92 Points. Tasted: Jun20 14.5% alc. $20 Screwcap Drink: 2020 - 2028+"- Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
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.
