Once a dairy farm, it's been meticulously restored and developed into an award winning estate vineyard, thats been mnaking the most spectacular wines. From vines planted on the southwest slope, Longview shows all the hallmarks of fine cool climate Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. The concentrated tropical palate is tempered by crispy, green vegetal characters and quenching minerality. Refreshing and elegant, powered by good fruit, resolving on a crisp, balanced finish.
The name Longview aptly descibes the vineyard with its far reaching views to the Coorong and Lake Alexandrina, the panoramic vistas over the property itself and surrounding countryside. Situated among some of the most picturesque vineyard country, Longview's southerly location is leading the charge, drawing international critical acclaim along with a swag of awards. Sauvignon Blanc is sourced entirely from Longview's vineyard at Macclesfield. Grapes are all hand picked throughout the chill of night and press before vinification. Bentonite fining and coarse earth filtering achieves a clear, bright wine. The Whippet is bottled immediately upon completion to be enjoyed while fresh and young. Alcohol 12.0%
Pale straw hue. A wonderfully aromatic wine showing passionfruit and honeysuckle, asparagus and fresh cut glass, white flowers and citrus. The palate displays refreshing melon, gooseberry and nettle flavours, a zesty and vibrant, well balanced style of gentle citrus acidity. Enjoy with goats cheese tart, grilled whiting or the shucked oysters.
