Description

Sourced from one of the finest vineyards in Young, NSW, in the heart of the Hilltops region, at an elevation of around 600m.

Tasting Note

This rich and flavoursome wine shows classic cool climate Shiraz notes of white pepper and aromatic red fruit, combined with a long, well-structured finish.

Vineyard

The fruit was sourced from one of Moppity Vineyard’s finest blocks of old vine Shiraz, and was picked mid March at 14.5be.

Winemaking

After picking, the fruit was crushed and destemmed into open top fermenters, where a warm, even fermentation took place. Once pressed, the wine was matured for 16 months in French oak barriques, a third of which were new.

Cellaring

Though drinking beautifully now, this fine wine will gain further complexity and interest over the next 10-12 years.

Food Match

This full flavoured wine will pair well with rich dishes such as lamb shanks, ratatouille and fine aged cheese.

Awards & Reviews

“It’s a good drink, that’s what it is. It seems uncomplicated at first but as it breathes it reveals more. Black cherries, sweet spices, eucalypt, violets and a graphite-like note. It swings juicily through the palate before gathering in a well-ordered way through the finish. Not a hair is out of place; it’s a good wine, a good drink and good value.” Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front 92+ points

“Intense purple red, clear and bright in colour. Lifted aromas of black fruits with vanilla oak, white pepper spice and peppermint notes adding to the complexity. There are soft tannins and white pepper at the front, with layers of blackcurrant and red fruits evident, well-integrated oak is balanced with clean acid and a long finish.” Stephen Read, Wine Matrix 92 points
