Situated among some of the region’s most picturesque vineyard country, Longview Vineyard is recognised as one of the Adelaide Hills’ leading modern vignerons. This family owned and operated estate, crafts a distinguished line-up of wines from each finely-tuned piece of the vineyard.

Beautifully fruited and elegantly complex showing dark plum, cherry, smoky bacon, olive and toasted nut aromas, followed by a supple palate delivering ripe fruit flavours together with silky texture and polished tannins. Wonderfully harmonious and delectable. At its best: now to 2028. Price: $30.00; Rating: 93 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit

The Shiraz made here (Adelaide Hills) does have more in common with some of the best hailing from the Rhone, with their elegance and complexity, than they do with the big, bold and rich examples from the Barossa and McLaren Vale. This is a compelling examples of that. The name, ‘Hen’s Teeth’, is a gentle reminder that while many may think great Hills Shiraz is that rare, look around. Anyway, this one is a cracker.

The wine is deep maroon in colour. A finely crafted style, it opens with hints of aniseed, dry herbs, leather, warm earth and tobacco leaves. This is a complex and refined Shiraz, seamless on the palate. There is no question that the team has taken advantage of an excellent vintage for the region. The texture is delightfully creamy and there is seriously impressive length here. Lots of tannins but they are very fine. For me, ideal with a rare steak now but it will also handle a decade in the cellar with ease. Excellent value. Drink to: 2022-2032; Price: $40.00; Alcohol: 14.5%; Rating: 94 Points; Ken Gargett
