Longhop Shiraz 2010 “… equal of wines at double the price.”

Longhop Shiraz 2010 reviewed by Ralph Kyte-Powell in Uncorked Melbourne and named his Wine Of The Week had this to say… “From South Australia’s Mount Lofty Ranges, this well priced young shiraz from the great 2010 vintage is the equal of some wines selling at double the price and more. The colour is deep and the nose has real concentration. Aromas of dark berries, spice, mint and chocolate are woven together in attractive harmony, and the palate is densely flavoured, rich and velvety, with a perfectly balanced backbone of ripe, integrated tannins. Tasty and satisfying right now, it also has good ageing potential. It’s what used to be called a “cellar builder” – a generously proportioned, reasonably priced young red to purchase by the case at a low price and enjoy over as it matures over the years. Ageing? drink over five years plus. Food: roast rib of beef; lamb pie.”
