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

A deep, dense crimson colour, on the nose there are blackcurrant, blackberry and cola notes. The palate is full but smooth, the tannins of the Cabernet Sauvignon are complemented by rich fruit from the Merlot and Malbec in the blend. On the finish, some spicyness from the Syrah comes though along with a savoury, leathery note.

Food Matches

Great accompaniment to slow cooked pulled pork chilli with dumplings.
