Longview is a stunning family owned Australian vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield in the Adelaide Hills. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of classic old world estates, it has quickly established itself as one the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001.
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 2020 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.
"Sauvignon Blanc and the Adelaide Hills are easy bedfellows, so to speak. Good balance here. You get a bit of the sweet grass and cut fennel perfume, in with ripe grapefruit and blackcurrant. It’s crisp, but has a gentle smooth glossiness, again the blackcurrant, gooseberry and citrus, and a fresh and slightly spicy finish of good length. Nothing grating. Easy to like. 91 Points Tasted: Nov 20. 11.5% alc. $23. Screwcap. Drink: 2020 - 2024" - Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
Longview is located on the South Eastern Ridge of the Mt Lofty Ranges and to the south has the southern ocean and to the east Lake Alexandrina. This accounts for a slightly higher average temperature than the rest of the Adelaide Hills while still remaining a cool-climate site.
Most rainfall occurs in winter and throughout summer warm days are followed by cool winds shifting from the southern waters of Lake Alexandrina and the coast. Consequently these conditions result in a very high diurnal range which is quite site specific, ensuring a breadth of flavours and aromatics in the grape berry.
Longview wines are all from its single estate and therefore much of the work to provide depth and character is completed in the vineyard. Each block is serviced differently, in order to build complex flavour profiles which are then fermented separately and blended to make the wine of any one vintage. With a site perfect for Macclesfield’s unique micro-climate, Longview Vineyard produces exceptional flavoursome, graceful cool climate wines.
Longview's Yakka Shiraz has become synonymous for high quality Adelaide Hills Shiraz, as has their Whippet Sauvignon Blanc, which is always one of the leading examples from the Adelaide Hills. Other standouts from Longview are their high quality Cabernet Sauvignon while in recent times their Gruner Veltliner has marked itself as one of Australia's most promising examples of this native Austrian white wine variety.
