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.
A syrah that is dominated by dark berry and plum aromas and flavours. There is a slightly spicy cedary note and wild fennel and mocha tones that are the region's stamp. The acidity, tannin structure and fruitiness are counter-balanced to deliver a long after taste with coffee bean nuance.
A fantastic wine to pair with lamb dishes and Mediterranean kebab-style dishes. As the wine ages, it can be paired with more delicate dishes like halibut or seabass steamed with herbs and mushrooms. However, nothing beats a glass of 5 year old Syrah next to some aged cheeses and fresh crusty bread.
