Longboard Vineyards

Longboard was born from the passion of Oded Shakked, surfer first, winemaker later, who brings a unique perspective to winemaking, or rather winegrowing as he prefers to call it. Longboard believes that great tasting wines are those that are true to the people and place that grew them. Thus, they extend the notion of “terroir” to include the human aspect, not just the soils, climate and weather.

Tasting Notes

DaKine Merlot is lush with blackcurrant, violet and blueberry aromas with the signature note of wild fennel. It has a generous mid-palate with sweet tannins and rich dark chocolate flavours

Food Matches

A fabulous wine to pair with a rare Filet Mignon or a beef carpaccio
