Exudes raspberries, spice and ripe dark berry fruit characteristics with some rounded blue fruit characters on the palate. It is flavoursome, rich and balanced with integrated oak and a long smooth finish. This is a distinctive Longview wine which has all the attributes that define our Adelaide Hills single vineyard. This 2013 Shiraz Cabernet is an Australian classic.
2013 was a vintage with even yields. The summer was relatively cool and even with its temperature resulting in a long ripening period. This resulted in an amazing quality of fruit and in turn resulted in intense flour and acid balance.
All of this fruit is sourced from the premium area of The Adelaide Hills. The Shiraz component (66%) is sourced from our Longview Estate and the Cabernet Sauvignon component (34%) is entirely from Kuipto (Adelaide Hills). The fruit was harvested in cool conditions and crushed into large open fermenters; maturation occurred in old and new French oak a mixture of barriques and hogs heads.
