2018 MACCLESFIELD CHARDONNAY
Winsor Dobbin - “Longview is building a reputation for both the length and breadth of its range and this is terrific chardonnay for the price; beautifully balanced, impressively varietal with the poise of a ballerina and the coiled power of an MMA artist. The fruit was all hand-picked from low-yielding high-altitude vines. French oak adds interest. Thoroughly modern, thoroughly delicious.”
Dan Traucki - “Fantastic classy topographical label- rich citrus & stone fruit aromas, so smooth, tasty & round flavours- superb balance & depth of flavours with an excellent lingering finish!”

95 Points - James Halliday's Wine Companion 'WOW Factor Whites' 2017. "The distiguished line-up of clones has obviously contributed to the complexity of the texture and flavour of this impressive chardonnay; it has layers of fruit, with some creaminess ex the mlf matching the crunchy natural acidity, and quality French oak providing another layer"

90 Points - Huon Hooke. "Light straw colour with a creamy yeast-lees aroma, with a tinge of smokiness. There's a lot more to it than simple fruit. Oak is liberally utilised, the palate intense and deep, firm and tight, with good persistence."
93 points - Mike Frost, The Courier Mail. "This complex estate grown, Adelaide Hills white shows citrus and stone fruit on the nose and palate, with integrated French oak and a touch of creaminess from malolactic fermentation and nutty lees maturation. Enjoy over next five years with chicken or pork dishes."
