Longhop Old Vine Grenache


Type: Grenache  Region: Adelaide Plains, South Australia

Pairs well with: Soft cheese, Semi-hard cheese


Tasting Note

Longhop Wines found it’s provenance in handcrafting the lush, generous and full flavours of yesteryear. They create expressive wines showcasing, fruit, season and birth place.

Cold soak prior to whole berry & partial whole bunch ferment in five ton open top fermenters, soft pump overs and minimal hand plunging. On skins for six days, basket pressed into young seasoned oak with ferment finishing off in barrel. Matured in French oak, two rackings prior to bottling.

Really well put together. Fruit from the Gawler River and Angle Vale (Spanish & French clones) work seamlessly bringing dark cherries, raspberry, plum and dried herb. Impressive depth from the medium bodied wine, finishing with gentle tannin and supple spice.


Wine & Cheese Pairing

For cheese pairings, you may want to try rich and creamy cheeses such as Camembert or Brie. These types of cheeses have a soft and buttery texture that complements the wine’s ripe fruit and spice notes.

Another great option is aged and nutty cheese such as Gouda or Parmesan. These types of cheeses have a complex and sharp flavor that pairs well with the wine’s structure and depth.
