Cool Climate Shiraz

Our Lock & Key Shiraz has built it’s own reputation for consistently producing high quality, cool climate Shiraz well above it’s price point. All the fruit is sourced from our high altitude, single vineyard in Hilltops, Southern NSW. We believe a key element of all ‘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.

Description

VITICULTURE
2018 was a moderate vintage with warm days balanced by 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 seamless medium-bodied palate, with bright youthful fruits and excellent balance. Layered with red and purple fruits, floral tones and peppery spice. Structured yet silky with lovely length.

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.
