Winemaker's Notes

Celebrating its 10th consecutive vintage, our Longhop Shiraz continues to deliver on its exceptional value for money mantra. Presenting with a burgeoning array of fruit aromatics, blackberries, raspberries and fig gliding onto the palate with confidence and ease. Loading up with dark chocolate, liquorice, cloves, spice and the ‘Plains acridity ticking away underneath. All perfectly balanced, lip smacking and loveable.

2014 Longhop Shiraz

Expert Reviews

The Wine Front (2014 Vintage) says

Good, honest, flavoursome wines made by Dom Torzi and Tim Freeland.

Has a biscuity smell much like Spicy Fruit Pillows or Full O Fruit, blackberry, chocolate, dusting of spice, and dusty earthy notes too. Full bodied, rich dark fruit, light grainy tannin, a distinct kind of tar and diesel sort of thing going on – hard to describe but a bit locomotive – plump raspberries and a juicy but burnt flavoured finish. Lots of character. Lots of bang per buck.

2016 - 2021
James Halliday (2013 Vintage) says
Basket pressed and aged in used French and American oak. It’s a tidy wine all round. Mid-weight serving of blackcurrant, leather, coffee grounds, boysenberry and mint flavour, all well-sustained through a mildly tannic but essentially fruit-filled finish. Drinks well young, but will cellar comfortably well mid-term.
Wine Companion 2015
The Wine Front (2013 Vintage) says
Matured in both French and American oak. Basket pressed. Shiraz from South Australia’s Mount Lofty Ranges. It’s a comforting style of shiraz. It has some grunt but it’s essentially soft, almost leathery. Blackberry, boysenberry and mocha notes do most of the talking, and keep chattering as the wine ripples through a gently tannic finish. Good value and drinking. Deceptively well structured.
The Wine Front, September 2014
Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A cheap and cheerful shiraz that makes for easy-Drinking appeal with a wealth of blackberry and plum fruits on the nose - nicely ripe, simple stuff. The palate's soft and fleshy, oak adds a toasty layer of flavour, and tannins sit under glossy fruit texture.
The Good Wine Guide 2012
Campbell Mattinson & Gary Walsh (2008 Vintage) says
It's almost always high in alcohol, but it usually comes with a heroic hit of flavour too - if you like a big red, you'll have to go a long way to find a better value example Massive wine. Pitch-black colour. Rich with syrupy flavours of coal, blackberry, tar and minerals and full-on from the first attack of flavour to the last of the long, warm finish. An epic wine. It has a good hit of tannin too, and wave after wave of dark, concentrated fruitiness. Australia's most powerful wine under $20.

Peter Forrestal (2006 Vintage) says
The energetic Domenic Torzi makes his sublime Eden Valley wines - Torzi Matthews 'Frost Dodger' Riesling Shiraz is vibrant and (the 2004 is vibrant and Shiraz succulent and has impressive generosity of fruit as the superb Torzi Matthews Olive Oil high-school and works with pal, Tim Freeland, on the Longhop and old Plains labels. This is a terrific plains shiraz with much greater depth of flavour than well as drinkability. Better on the palate has blackberry and vanilla bean flavours, velvety texture plenty of oak and non-aggressive tannins. It's only available by mail order but you can buy a three pack (including delivery) for $45. That's value and service.
