2020 Longhop Merlot Barossa Valley – Sourcing precious old vine survival plantings of the 1950s, and coupled with their non-interventional approach to winemaking, Longhop Wines found it’s provenance in handcrafting the lush, generous and full flavours of yesteryear. They create expressive wines showcasing, fruit, season and birth place.
Whole berry ferment in five ton open top fermenters with soft pump overs and minimal hand plunging. On skins for seven days, then basket pressed into young seasoned oak with ferment finishing off in barrel. Matured in French oak. Two rackings prior to blending and bottling.
Plenty of aromatics, with a rich palate filled with blackberry, dark chocolate and mocha. Drink now to 7+ years.
