    Longaví is the personal project of two friends from different continents who came together in 2012 to produce wines together, the Chilean Julio Bouchon and the South African David Nieuwoudt. Julio, the descendant of a French wine pioneer who arrived in Chile in 1887, is the producer, and David, owner of Cederberg one of the most prestigious wineries in South Africa, is the oenologist.  Longaví, meaning ‘snake’s head’, draws on the spirit and legends of two continents. The name derives from a volcano called Nevado de Longaví – a perennially snowcapped peak of 3242m, situated in the Maule region in Chile.

    The Longavi Cabernet Sauvignon is a deep and intense red with great structure, ripe tannins and good acidity that bring freshness to the wine.  On the nose there are dark fruits – blackberry and black plum with mint and cinnamon notes and cedar from the oak.  It has a long, complex finish.

    Wine Style Meter

     

    Our ongoing quest at Winecroft is to do away with winespeak so we can talk clearly about the wine. One of the ways we achieve this is by using our Wine Style Meter, a key tool to match you with new wines we believe that you’ll love. We do this by matching the style of each wine on our list to your personal taste profile, which is established with the science-based Winecroft taste test and will evolve as you taste new wines.

    The needle on the Wine Style Meter points you towards the following wines:

    Once you settle the needle on the style of wine you like, our Wine Style Meter is a quick, clear and simple way of gauging whether you’ll like a particular wine from our wonderful winelist.
