Farmer’s Leap Shiraz 2017
Scott and Cheryl Longbottom first planted vines in Padthaway in the early 90s... 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.
