The Longhop vineyards are located in the
Plains with some of the vineyards going back 50 years. All the wines are open
top ferments with whole berries and a mix of wild and inoculated yeasts. The
wines are pressed off into a mix of old and new American and French oak for an
extended period before being bottled. Mount Lofty

My god this has power and flavour with the American oak taking centre stage for most of the time I had this open. The flavours of plums and blackberries are mixed with dried spices and raspberry lollipops. This is a full on wine that will satisfy a lot of people. For me the quality of this wine is above the price but it is not as good as the Cabernet. Buy up whatever you like. If you like soft mouth-feel and high drink-ability then go for this.
