Warmth of cedar and wood smoke curls out of the bouquet, and the palate picks up the oak line without any hesitation or prevarication. This is the most elegant of the Magic Dirt trio.

Colour – black core with deep red rim. Nose – is full of dark fruits and spice with fresh charcuterie, graphite, subtle earth and peppery Palate – the most restrained of the Barossa Valley trio, the 2013 Moppa exhibits a backbone of fresh and juicy dark fruits with subtle spice and earth notes that carry through to the late palate, balanced with fine savoury tannins giving a long seamless finish.

Cellaring Drink now to 2030 if cellared well.

Viticulture Situated on the south eastern slope of Mt Moppa, vineyard is at an altitude of approximately 400m above sea level, and a soil profile of deep red/ brown loam, mottled with quartz and ironstone fragments. The rows run north-south, and the combined elevation and southerly aspect contribute to the softness and spiciness of this Shiraz, with Moppa being the most elegant and restrained of the 3 wines.

Vinification & Maturation Fermented in an open top vessel, fermentation lasted 8 days with total time on skins was 16 days before being drained and pressed. The free run and pressings were blended and then the component earmarked for this wine was matured in 3 year old french barrique for 23 months. The wine was then fined lightly and bottled without filtration. Matured in bottle for 17 months before release.
