''The bouquet is very expressive, bordering on floral, with nuances of sandalwood and fresh leather underneath; the palate has an incisive, fresh mouthfeel.'
95 Points - James Halliday

  • Moppity Vineyards; an exciting revelation for wine explorers seeking the next stage in evolution of sophisticated Australian wine. Perched at high altitude in cool Southern NSW, this mature vineyard planted in 1973 hosts a unique marriage of soil, climate and vine clone. Destined to make world class wine, for many years it was well ahead of its time.

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    The Hilltops region’s warm days provide rich, generous fruit flavours while the cool nights draw out the growing season, contributing finesse and spicy complexity

    Extremely cool climate.Hand picked fruit from our Single Vineyard at an altitude of 650m.

    Cold soaked pre-ferment, 14 day co-fermentation with 2% Viognier, barrel aged in new and used French puncheons and barriques for 12 months

    TASTING NOTES

    Aromatic, perfumed and spicy with sweet dark berry and plum nuances. A medium bodied palate with concentrated forest fruits; long and mouthfilling with supple, velvety tannins. Savoury notes and spice on the finish are integrated with fine cedary oak. The Viognier provides a silky sheen to the supple texture of the palate.

  • REVIEWS

    'The bouquet is very expressive, bordering on floral, with nuances of sandalwood and fresh leather underneath; the palate has an incisive, fresh mouthfeel to the display of cherry and plum fruits, here with forest notes in the background. It has excellent length, yet achieves all this with a lightness of touch.'
