Longview Vineyard chairman Duncan MacGillivray appears to have the Midas touch when it comes to his 2006 Yakka Shiraz.
A Gold Medal at the 2007 National Wine Show of Australia, awarded last night at a presentation dinner in Canberra, has now positioned the premium Yakka as one of the most awarded in the national 2006 Shiraz category.
The latest accolade takes the Yakka’s medal haul to six Gold, along with a finalist placing in this year’s Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy.
Renowned for his success in creating the Ready to Drink category with Two Dogs, Mr MacGillivray and his Longview label are now making serious in-roads into the national and international premium wine industries.
Mr MacGillivray said the latest Gold was a triumph for Longview and the Adelaide Hills wine region.
“The Yakka Shiraz is a single vineyard wine with all fruit sourced entirely from the Longview Vineyard at Macclesfield, in the Adelaide Hills,” he said.
“Winning Gold once again shows that this wine is at the top of its class on a national scale.
“It has been a rewarding journey from Two Dogs to Longview Vineyard and the bonus has been our beautiful property where we live and work with our expert team.”
