    There’s nothing quite like a glass of Yakka after a hard day’s Yakka.

    Made by the crew at Longview Vineyard in the cool climate wine region of the Adelaide Hills. For the money, this is quite some wine. They’ve done all the hard work (Yakka) and made the decision pretty bloody easy for ya. Just check out what you’re getting here…

    * 100% single estate grown fruit
    * Hand picked fruit
    * Aged 15 months in French oak (20% new)
    * Awarded 95/100 by Huon Hooke at The Real Review
    * Awarded “Top Value” by The Real Review
    * Awarded “Top Rank” by The Real Review
    * Potential to age 10+ years

    A score of 95/100 from Huon Hooke is not to be sniffed at! The Real Review’s Huon Hooke called this vintage “Deep red colour with good tinges of purple and a chocolate, vanilla and blackberry bouquet, the palate powerful and concentrated, with a warmth of alcohol and meaty nuances. The wine is bright and incisive, piercing and long. A quite impressive, profound yet elegant shiraz. Delicious drinking.”

    Not only did it also rank as “Top Value” but it ranked as the No.3 best Shiraz from the 2017 vintage in this region, making it “Top Rank” also!

    Enjoy the Yakka now but long term cellaring will be rewarded – try 10+ years from vintage!
