    "If you’re looking for a traditional South Australian Shiraz that’s outstanding value, then it’s not such a Longhop, to the shop, if you want to rock and roll. Rich dark raspberry, blackberry, chocolate and subtle perfume of vanilla and coconut. It’s a flood of blackcurrant flavour, with some savoury truffle notes, supple tannin, balanced acidity, depth of flavour but not heavy or overdone. Finish is long and satisfying. For living in the now, this wine is hitting all the right notes."

Locations

Australia

The Australian wine industry is the fourth-largest exporter in the world, exporting 760 million litres to countries such as the UK, France, Italy and Spain. It has been one of the most successful 'New World' wine producing countries. It has done this by formally exporting and marketing its wines as a whole, through Wine Australia. There is also a significant domestic market for Australian wines, with Australians consuming nearly 500 million litres of wine per year. The wine industry is a significant contributor to the Australian economy through production, employment, export and tourism.

Wine regions are in almost all the states with Victoria having 21 regions! Read more about key wine regions such as Margaret River, Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Eden Valley, Clare Valley, Hunter Valley, Yarra Valley and local to New South Wales, Cowra, Southern Highlands and Mudgee.

South Australia

If you like Australian wine, then you probably like South Australia wine. The rich reds produced there put Australia on the wine-making map of the world. With over 40% of the country's vineyards, South Australia can rightfully call itself the wine state.

Wines are produced in several regions throughout the state, though many are naturally grouped together, like Barossa and Eden Valleys, only 15 minutes apart. They include such regions as Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, Eden Valley, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Kangaroo Island, Langhorne Creek, The Limestone Coast, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully to name but a few!

Barossa Valley boasts some of the oldest vines in Australia dating back to 1843 and produces some of the world's finest Shiraz, whilst the 'terra rossa' soils of Coonawarra is most suited to producing outstanding Cabernet Sauvignons. If you're a fan of Riesling, Clare Valley is a great place to explore and for a Maritime climate not dissimilar to parts of the Italian coastline, seek out the wines from McLaren Vale.

Mount Lofty Ranges

Located in the Australian state of South Australia, the Mount Lofty Ranges is a wine-growing zone that’s home to three distinct wine regions: Clare Valley, Adelaide Hills, and Adelaide Plains. As of 1996, Mount Lofty Ranges achieved appellation status as an Australian Geographical Indication (AGI). The zone sits west of the Murray River and surrounds Australia’s famed Barossa wine zone on three sides. Thanks to the three region’s different climates, the wines coming out of them likewise vary greatly. Adelaide Hills is one of South Australia’s coolest regions; Adelaide Plains is one of the state’s hottest, flattest areas; and Clare Valley’s climate is hot and dry. Adelaide Hills top three grape varieties are Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir. Adelaide Plains produces primarily Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, and Colombard. And Clare Valley has an esteemed reputation for its Riesling, as well as for Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

About the brand Longhop Wines

Great wine begins in the vineyard and for Old Plains and Longhop nothing is more important. Our vineyards are unique, remnant plantings that have mostly survived urban expansion and the pursuit of other agricultural profits. They also escaped the vine pull schemes that were popular during the 1980s. These government sponsored schemes saw old, low yielding vines uprooted with the help of subsidies and replaced by cash crops of vegetables and wheat. In some instances vast tracts of old vine shiraz was replaced by chardonnay! What a waste. The remaining small vineyards are true masterpieces of wine grape flavour, weathered, gnarly and magnificent in their defiance of commercial expansion.
