Longhop Shiraz 2009 – “..Australia’s best value reds”

Longhop Shiraz 2009 is another cracker vintage.  Campbell Mattison from The Wine Front agrees:   “Longhop Shiraz has fast established a reputation as one of Australia’s best value reds. This 2009 version is up there with the best of them.  Dense colour, dense flavour, lakes of tannin and a good, dry, long finish.  Remarkable that this sells for $15. Lovely clip of fresh, slippery, cedary oak (French and American) matches beautifully to minty, blackberried, smoky fruit flavour. There are some sweet, raisiny characters too, forming part of a delicous parade. (The Longhop Shiraz 2009 )…Very impressive wine. Rated 92 Points”
