A premium Adelaide Hills Shiraz from the Saturno boys at Longview, this high scoring cool climate red is exactly what you want to see - class, spice, length and lovely bright red/purple fruit.

You know what makes this red so endlessly drinkable? That medium-bodied savouriness AND the effortless fruit. It's a perfect marriage of flavour.

Expert Reviews

95 Points - Huon HookeDeep 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.
92 Points - James SucklingViolets, crushed blueberries, citrus and nutmeg. Medium body, grippy tannins and an orange-soaked finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
92 Points - Campbell Mattinson - The Wine FrontThe Yakka vineyard has been a good performer over the years. Good heft this year. It almost makes it feel a little old school. Toast and vanilla characters, maybe even coffee-cream, melt into asphalt, black cherry and roasted plum. The smooth face of hearty. Firm with tannin too. A substantial red.
90 Points - Toni Paterson MW - The Real ReviewA good mix of fruit sweetness and savouriness. Juicy raspberry fruit and subtle spice. I enjoy the density, and energy of the mid-palate, as well as the bright acidity. Decanting is recommended to unleash the aromatic red fruit characters

How's it taste?

The 2017 Yakka Shiraz has a dark violet hue, with lifted aromas of raspberries and plum, anise and baking spices. The palate is plush, and tannins are silky smooth with well-integrated oak characters. Excellent to drink now and will benefit with 10+ years cellaring.

How was it made?

The Yakka is named after the hardy Xanthorrhoea flowering plant which is ubiquitous in Australia and found around Longview’s perimeter.

Matured for 15 months in old and new French barriques, the wine displays vibrant blue fruits, spice, flavours of dark chocolate and coffee. 

Who made it?

Longview is a stunning, family-owned Adelaide Hills single vineyard located just outside the historic township of Macclesfield. Set on undulating slopes reminiscent of old world estates but with a clear Australian accent, it has quickly established itself as one of the most awarded vineyards in the region since its first vintage in 2001. Operations are overseen by brothers Mark and Peter Saturno, along with a small but specialised team. They ensure the vineyard is fastidiously managed to produce the finest fruit for their premium estate grown wines and provide a wine tourism experience that has placed Longview in the South Australian Tourism 'Hall of Fame'.

It’s a dirty job but someone has to try all these wines for you and over the past 16 years as a Personal Wine Advisor I’ve tried a few! I like to try a wine twice as wine can often taste different in different situations. So if you still haven't found what you're looking for, here are a few that I have tasted recently that might suit.
