Longview Yakka Shiraz triumphs in Winelife magazine No. 1 2015


Longview Yakka 2009 is a winner at the Rijst&Proef tasting themed Syrah/Shiraz from France and Australia! EditionWinelife No. 1 2015.

2009 Yakka Shiraz is dark purple in colour, with aromas of black cherries, white pepper and baking spices exhibiting flavours of dark chocolate and plums. It has toasty oak characters, perfectly balanced tannin and a long clean finish. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 10+ years cellaring. 

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 24 months.
