Longview is a winery with little visibility in Hong Kong. It first launched its works in 2001, and the response was quite good.
The Piece series is a project made by Longview to support local street graffiti. Every year, the works of local graffiti artists are used as wine labels.
Not only the wine label is eye-catching, but the wine itself also uses the best grapes from the vineyard (the most famous No. 3 field in Longview), and only hand-picked grapes, in order to make the best wine with the best grapes, definitely not A wine for Gimmick.
Official tasting note for reference:
An elegant and complex wine which displays aromas of baking spices, maraschino cherry, anise and coffee coupled with restrained pencil shavings of French oak.
The structured palate displays flavours of cherry, red currant, mulberries and fresh acidity.
Dusty tannins complement the finish which is dry and clean with tremendous length.
