Dark violet hue, with aromas of black cherries, white pepper and baking spices exhibiting flavours of dark chocolate and coffee. It has well integrated toasty oak characters that balanced perfectly with the tannin leaving a long clean finish. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 10+ years cellaring.
2013 was an outstanding vintage with very low yields. The summer was cool and dry with harvesting occurring in the middle of March. This has resulted in an amazing quality of fruit and in turn resulted in intense flavour and acid balance.
The Yakka Shiraz is sourced entirely from Longview’s vineyard at Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked to minimize fruit damage, fermented on skins for 7 to 10 days in open fermenters. After malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in old and new French Oak Barriques for 18 months
