Great wine begins in the vineyard and for Old Plains and Longhop nothing is more important. The vineyards are unique, remnant plantings that have mostly survived urban expansion and the pursuit of other agricultural profits. They also escaped the vine pull schemes that were popular during the 1980s. These government sponsored schemes saw old, low yielding vines uprooted with the help of subsidies and replaced by cash crops of vegetables and wheat. In some instances vast tracts of old vine shiraz was replaced by chardonnay! What a waste. The remaining small vineyards are true masterpieces of wine grape flavour, weathered, gnarly and magnificent in their defiance of commercial expansion.
Classic, powerful and elegant these wines are new to Camperdown Cellars and currently have the entire range on special with the Longhop Range currently $19.99 a bottle and the Old Vine range a steal at only $34.99.
We can't wait to have you in-store to welcome these exceptional wines into the store with us.
