2019 Moppa Shiraz is dark magenta-black in colour. There is an array of delectable aromatics exuding from the glass. It displays notes of potpourri, malt, plum cake, clove spice, ginger, anise and violet. The palate is full-bodied, rich and flavoursome with a vivacious expression of ripe berry fruits. It is a mouth-filling wine, generous but admirably balanced. The natural tannins are well integrated adding a chalky spine. Subtle cedary oak is evident playing a supportive role in the background. As expected from this bountiful wine the finish is equally impressive, long and pure-fruited. Moppa 2019 is an expressive Shiraz that can be enjoyed now or will cellar well in the medium to long term. Quality from 2019 is stunning. It was a warm and extremely dry growing season with rainfall down significantly (39%), making it one of the driest years in the past century. Summer was 3 degrees warmer than average. Yields were impacted by the dry season, leading to smaller berries and bunches. Importantly quality is brilliant producing richly flavoured, intense wines. 100% Certified Organic & Biodynamic.

The kind of stuff South Australian kids are weaned on. Chocolatey, rich, dense and quilt-like red of deep flavour, ripe/sweet fruit, lavish sweet spice, warmth and generosity. All smooth, satiny, a faint smudge of tannin the only ruffle in the mellifluous flow. Speaks with a broad, ocker accent, that’s for sure. Generosity. Heartland stuff.
