Winemaker Notes

Vintage Longbottom H Syrah is deep red with bright purple hues. It is perfumed with violet florals, rhubarb and cherry. Fruit forward with fine tannins and flavors of pomegranate, cardamom and satsuma plum on the palate, this wine is delicate in texture and elegant in structure.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 91
Vinous

Deep ruby. Expressive black and blue fruit scents are complemented by building floral and cracked pepper notes. Broad and fleshy but lively on the palate, offering seamless cassis, blueberry and dark chocolate flavors that firm up slowly on the back half. The floral note repeats on a long, spice-tinged finish that's framed by well-knit tannins.

WE 90
Wine Enthusiast
This vintage is a blend of two regions, but going forward all fruit will be from the Adelaide Hills. A rich nose of raspberry, rhubarb compote, black currant cordial, flowers and cola lead to a supple and relatively approachable palate. It is woven with soft but supportive tannins, plummy fruit and spicy oak. Drink now–2027.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Fresh, featuring accents of cumin and star anise to the wild strawberry and pomegranate flavors at the core. Supple and creamy, with fresh acidity. A note of caramel lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2034.

Kim Longbottom has built her wine business around the core message that family comes first. 

Twenty years after releasing her first wave of classic red wines with husband Mark from the Limestone Coast’s famed Padthaway region, a new chapter in the Vintage Longbottom story has begun with the arrival of daughter Margo into the company. Their family story continues and now includes the next generation.

Margo brings with her a family-instilled passion for wine as well as a vibrant new outlook stemming from her studies in fashion, digital marketing and business.

Surrounded by wines and vines all her life, she freely admits she loves the lifestyle that comes with the business as well as the hard work, from getting her hands dirty during vintage to the essential sharing of the admin load and vital new community connections via social media.

A narrow band of hills and valleys east of the city of Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills region is a diverse landscape featuring a variety of microclimates. In general it is moderate with high-altitude areas cooler and wetter compared to its warmer, lower areas.

Piccadilly Valley, the part of Adelaide Hills closest to the city, was first staked out by a grower named Brian Croser, in the 1970s for a cool spot to grow Chardonnay, then uncommon in Australia. Today a good amount of the Chardonnay goes to winemakers outside of the region.

Producers here experiment with other cool-climate loving aromatic varieties like Pinot Gris, Viognier and Riesling. Charming sparkling wine is also possible. On its north side, lower, west-facing slopes make full-bodied Shiraz.

Marked by an unmistakable deep purple hue and savory aromatics, Syrah makes an intense, powerful and often age-worthy red. Native to the Northern Rhône, Syrah achieves its maximum potential in the steep village of Hermitage and plays an important component in the Red Rhône Blends of the south, adding color and structure to Grenache and Mourvèdre. Syrah is the most widely planted grape of Australia and is important in California and Washington. Sommelier Secret—Such a synergy these three create together, the Grenache, Syrah, Mourvedre trio often takes on the shorthand term, “GSM.”
