2016 certainly was a good vintage for Longhop, the wines are generous and comfortable with plenty of fruit.

Sourcing precious old vine survival plantings of the 1950's and coupled with our non-interventional approach to winemaking, Longhop Wines found it's provenance in handcrafting the lush, generous flavours of yesteryear.

Our methods of partial whole bunch open fermenting, basket pressing into young seasoned oak creates expressive wines showcasing fruit, season and birthplace.
 


New Release - 2017 Longhop Pinot Gris
Back to back, another great pinot gris hits the streets with the 2017 version looking as good as ever.
Hand picked, partial whole bunch pressed, free run juice only. Cold settling for 12 days then racked with suspended solids remaining for natural ferment at low temperature for six weeks. Continuing with lees aging for another six weeks before racking and cold settling prior to bottling.
Flavouring of orchard fruits, pear and apple, mouth filling whilst natural acidity keeps everything fresh and lively - a terrific all-rounder.
