Out of stock! Longview's Shiraz has all the hallmarks of a cool-climate style - spicy, savoury with crunchy berry fruit. The Barbera provides a juicy, cherry-like brightness and taut acid backbone that gives the wine wonderful structure. It is a wine that is extremely drinkable young but will develop well over 5 years.
All fruit is hand-picked (Barbera is berry-sorted and undergoes a 5 day cold-soak). It is cruished, de-stemmed before a cool, open ferment for up to 21 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs in French Oak Hogsheads. The blend is determined in the barrel room solely based on fruit flavour and acid balance.
