Background:
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.
Our 2013 Devil’s Elbow Cabernet Sauvignon is medium bodied in colour with a violet hue, it has aromas of black current, clove, capsicum and pencil shavings. The palate is perfectly balanced tannin and a long clean finish. There is a great marriage of wild berries, capsicum and herbaceousness, excellent to drink now and will benefit with 12+ years cellaring.
