DESCRIPTION
  • Longhop is the range of wines from Domonic Torzi and Tim Freeland, former high school mates who both ended up in the wine trade.

    The Pinot Gris is sourced from two sites located at Lenswood & Kersbrook in the beautiful panoramic Adelaide Hills. It exhibits freshly picked orchard fruits of pear, honeydew and apple that are mouth filling, followed by lively natural acidity that keeps everything fresh and invigorating. A terrific all-rounder that suits an array of both Asian & Mediterranean inspired dishes.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Hand picked, partial whole bunch pressed, free run juice only. Cold settling for 12 days then racked with suspended solids remaining for natural ferment at low temperature for six weeks. Continuing with lees aging for another six weeks before racking and cold settling prior to bottling.
    Flavouring of orchard fruits, pear and apple, mouth filling whilst natural acidity keeps everything fresh and lively - a terrific all-rounder.

    'Gentle pink tinge. Dry and crunchy. It boasts perfume and flavour but it’s that dry, almost stony bite that characterises it. Gris by name and nature but with a nod to grigio. Has a bit of get up and go.'

    90 Points - Campbell Mattinson

    'One of those bottles that emptied before the ink came outa the nib - like jeez where'd that go? - this creamy, reassuring, devilishly slick dainty is all silky unction and yum. My favourite whites lately seem to have buttery pear characters in common, like the Rocha, Anjou and luxurious Comice: perfect pears to slurp with a Port Salut or real crunchy Parmigiano-Reggiano. This drink has the pear in its flavour, and yells out for more of it on the plate. With that cheese. Eighteen bucks. Into it!'
    Philip White

    'This is very easy drinking, very fresh and very bright pinot gris. Best drunk in the prime of its youth, it tastes summery with its bevy of ripe, white flesh orchard fruit flavours and offers up classic honey-drizzled pear perfume. While flavoursome, it doesn’t over do the slipperiness in texture, showing a light oiliness that finishes refreshing with a starburst of grapefruit acidity. You could say it is a very well balanced wine in its style. Chill well and pour with gusto. The longhop range always seems to over deliver.'
