The Reserve Shiraz has set the benchmark for the Hilltops region, striking the perfect balance between warm climate richness and cool climate elegance. ‘..total fusion and perfect balance of its black fruits, lifted by some co-fermented viognier, its Rolls Royce tannins and their stealthy power, and quality oak knowing its role is no more than supporting.’ – James Halliday

Description

VITICULTURE
Hand selected fruit from 8 blocks planted to 5 clones of Shiraz. Old vine, low yield; 2.5 tonnes per hectare, leaf-plucked, shoot-thinned and crop-thinned.

WINE MAKING
35% whole bunch, cold soaked for 5 days prior to fermentation. Temperature controlled ferment over 14 days, the shiraz and viognier were co fermented. The wine was then barrel aged in new and used French puncheons and hogsheads for 11 months.

TASTING NOTES
Intoxicating nose of succulent black fruits and spice. The palate is deceptively generous with briary notes and red berry fruits. This wine exhibits traits of Northern Rhone, with its elegance, refinement, bright perfumed fragrance and savoury complexity. The concentrated palate unfolds to reveal an array of red forest fruits and well integrated oak seasoning.

Moppity Wines, Hilltops NSW

In 2002, Jason and Alecia Brown began their search for a vineyard from which they could pursue their dreams of making more expressive, medium bodied and elegant wines.

In 2004, they found ‘thier diamond in the rough’. Located near a town called Young in Southern NSW, the vineyard was located in one of Australia’s smallest and little-known wine regions (Hilltops). Seduced by the cool climate, high elevation and gnarly old vines, it was what they needed to craft wines of purity, finesse and vibrancy.

A family owned & run winery. Jason & Alecia Brown’s Moppity Vineyards is winning some of the biggest prizes in Australian wine-making.
