Farmer’s Leap Shiraz 2016
Scott and Cheryl Longbottom first planted vines in Padthaway in the early 90’s … these vines are now heading towards 30 years of age and producing balanced crops with excellent fruit intensity. Initially they found a ready market for their high-quality grapes, selling to other producers. These days they keep the best 15% of this fruit for themselves. They have also hired winemaking gun Renae Hirsch who also makes the superb wines of Chalk Hill and Alpha Crucis in McLaren Vale.
