Longview Macclesfield Grüner Veltliner 2021

$30.00
An extraordinarily complex wine. This is prettily perfumed with juniper, white pepper, pear, apple, guava and a waft of cinnamon wending their way through your olfactories. The palate is textural, slightly grainy and long with a decent whack of acid coiling around the fruit and generating a sense of life and energy.

Longview is situated in one of the best bits of the Hills, namely Macclesfield. All of their wines are single vineyard and Estate Grown, with reds grown on the northern slopes, catching that bit more sun which promotes additional ripeness. The whites are planted on the Southern aspect, which is a little cooler, promoting additional acidity and retaining of bright fruit fragrance and flavours.

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets. Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. ... Read Full Article

Mexican Ceviche
Mexican Ceviche
The explosive lime-iness of this dish would make you reach for a nice cold Corona to wash it down, but an equally great companion is the wine equivalent of a crisp, clean lager. The Tim Adams Pinot Gris fits that bill perfectly with its balance of zesty lemon, crisp apple and pear and fresh mineral flavours but any other good PG will do the job. Summer feasting calls for fresh, tangy and light dishes and a ceviche is a fantastic way to kick off a Mexican feast and get your tastebuds tingling. Ceviche is a seafood dish of raw fish cured in lime juice. This recipe comes from a Mexican friend living in Denmark – her family hold onto their culinary heritage as much as possible but they often have to improvise when they can’t find some of their favourite, more ‘exotic’ ingredients at the supermarket. That’s the great thing about a ceviche – you can make it to suit your own tastes, heat tolerances and what’s available or affordable in your neck

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry.

Worth noting is how the average rainfall increases the higher you go, with Mount Lofty picking up 1400mm on the old splash-o-meter compared to 850mm just 10K down the road in Charleston. This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes maturing
