Moppa Block Shiraz 2008

Hand Picked | Basket Pressed | 96 pts by James Halliday

Moppa Block Shiraz is sourced from a single vineyard on the eastern slopes of Moppa Hill, located in the Barossa Valley.

This vineyard has an altitude of almost 400m which makes it the highest vineyard on the western side of the Barossa and results in cooler temperatures.  Its terroir consists of red/brown earth over rich friable red clay, along with fragments of ironstone.

The cooler temperatures and rich clay soils help to produce a vibrant aromatic wine with superb concentration and structure.

Show Tasting Notes

Appearance: Incredible black core almost right to the rim.

Aroma: Dark and mysterious almost over powering density of Christmas cake, vanilla, prunes, aniseed and treacle.

Palate: Sheer intensity of bitter dark chocolate, liquorice, Christmas cake, prunes and vanilla.  A steely structure with an acid over 7 but the massive concentration conceals and gives balance and harmony.  Bold grainy tannins give an incredible long lasting finish.

Wine is heat sensitive. During the warmer months we reserve the right to hold orders in instances of extreme heat, until there is a clear path of non-extreme temperatures between us and you. All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
