Matured for 18 months in seasoned french and American oak.
The nose is rich and lifted with dense chocolate and refreshing lift. Dense and powerful with an alluring quality. On the palate, this is a rich, succulent wine with a lovely array of juicy fruit and chocolate. Fasntastic balance of fine plush tanins & refreshing, cleansing acid structure. A truly delicious wine!

Critic Scores & reviews
"It’s only May, but I’m calling it – this Longhop Shiraz 2019 is the most impressive $20 South Australian Shiraz you’ll buy this year. It’s such a substantial red. Thick and grainy, with a real black fruit profile, the palate is so deep and dark and long. It gets a bit heavy on the finish, but that just adds to the intensity. $20? There are $50 reds with less intensity than this. It’s a bit rough and tumble on the finish, but that just adds to the charm. Bargain. I was almost at 93 on the score too. Best drinking: now to ten years plus."
"How bloody good is Dom Torzi? National treasure. Also, best black olives in the business. And the tapenade is off the charts. This is lush stuff. True neck oil. Easy drinking, dark fruited, ripe, sweet, spicy, soft and pillowy. A kind of rustic charm and so damn honest. Booze soaked berries and dark chocolate blitzed for your pleasure. Straight up delicious. It’s big and brassy and clumsy and cuddly. It’s so darn yum!"

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.
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.
