For their 20th Anniversary, Longview have released a new range from the Macclesfield sub-region of the Adelaide Hills. Impressive packaging (goes without saying at Longview) and an equally impressive wine, this is proof positive that not all top riesling has to come from the Clare or Eden Valleys, or Mt Barker.
There is an array of aromatics – bath salts, talc, chalk – before we move to citrus notes, limes and grapefruits. Some florals, spice and a minerally background too; clean and juicy. This is a wine with a future; drink it over the next five to seven years.
