Established in 1966 long flat is one of australia’s most well known and well loved wines. The combination of our iconic brand along with consistently excellent wines continues to delight and reward discerning drinkers more than 40 years later. 2013 marks a significant year of re-invention and re-invigoration for long flat. With an exciting and comprehensive overhaul of the brand positioning, we have totally refreshed the entire brand identity & brand livery and created a new, more contemporary, stand-out ‘icon’ that will provide our much loved wine with a revitalized identity for the future.
The current Long Flat winemaker, Dave Thomson, is himself a legend of the Australian wine industry. With 33 years experience in the wine industry he has produced over 30 vintages in Australia as well as four in France and two in South America.
David and his winemaking team work meticulously to ensure that Long Flat wines reflect their true origin and that they have real depth and character and regional personality. As such vineyard selection is crucial and underpins all aspects of the wine making proces The 2011 Long Flat Shiraz is vibrant red with an aroma of lifted cherry and plum fruits. On the nose there is a slight touch of white pepper with subtle spicy undertones. Juicy plum fruits fill the front and mid palate, followed by a minty ?nish with soft tannins and balanced acidity. The perfect wine match with flame grilled fillet of beef accompanied with a red wine jus. Also goes great with a hearty lamb stew or wood-fired pizza. A fantastic all-rounder.
