About: We have 8 blocks planted to 5 clones of Shiraz, all with varying aspects, elevation and soil types. We believe a key element in ‘Moppity Shiraz’ comes from the art of blending small batches of different blocks and clones to produce wines that have a kaleidoscope of flavour and textural profiles. Moppity Vineyards; winner of the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge in 2014 & 2016.
Viticulture: 2016 was the warmest year we had experienced in Hilltops, we were thankful for the cooler night temperatures which produced fruit with incredible colour and intensity of flavour but with good natural acidity and brightness.
Wine making: Cold soaked pre-ferment, 12 day fermentation, barrel aged in a combination of older French hogsheads and stainless steel.
Tasting Notes: A delicious medium-bodied palate with fine lacy tannin and pure dark berry fruits, with savoury undertones. Lovely presence in the front and mid palate, powering off towards the back before seamlessy intergrating onto a juicy, bright and silky finish.
