This Shiraz is sourced from a vineyard planted on top of Moppa Hill at 380m, the highest elevation on the western ridge of the Barossa. The vineyard has a perfect easterly aspect and gradient to catch the morning sun and is shaded from the late heat of the day. The soils are lean red clays with mixed ironstone and quartz, producing optimum conditions for dark, savoury fruits and fine, structured tannins. Only 200 cases produced.
“Very spicy and exotic, lapsang souchong tea, vanilla and perfume, ovaltine, crisp blackberry. Medium-bodied, earthy and savoury, tea and spice, tightly knit tannin, distinctly non-fruity, though has flavour including a sort of blackcurrant intensity. Dry and pulsing through the finish. Distinct personality and interest here.” 95 points – Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
