David Franz, Long Gully Ancient Vine, 75cl


Son of Australian winemaking legend Peter Lehmann, David manages 75 acres of the family’s vineyards in the Barossa and Eden valleys, which are home to some incredibly old vines: more than 130-years-old in the case of his iconic Long Gully Road Semillon. David’s winemaking is wild and minimalist. He has full licence to restrict yields and strive for quality, hence why he claims, “pruning is where the journey starts, not just when the grapes are picked and arrive at the winery.”

Firm crisp and juicy with a mouth watering acidity. Balanced fruit and textural mouth weight fill the mouth with the light delicate combination of pure lemon, dried herbal leaves and yeast complexity. The super light and clean palate lingers on beautifully leaving the mouth ready for the next sip.

A few must haves
