Longview Vineyard VISTA Shiraz Barbera 2018

Double edged meaning for the label of this wine: VISTA is an acronym for Varied Inclines Slopes Terrain & Aspects….. And vista is the Italian word for “view.” Vegan friendly.

Longview Vineyard, VISTA, Shiraz, Barbera, Adelaide Hills, 2018

An increase in the stated ABV for the third release. Black jelly beans, coffee grounds, plums to prune, dried fig, cherry, touch of meaty lanolin and some dark chocolatey influences. Savoury and crunchy: dark herb Barbera provides plenty of structure to wrap sweeter Shiraz fruit around. Juicy finish with bright acidity make this a perfect match for food or….on its own.

RRP: $24
Alc: 14.5%
Rating: 18/20
