2018 Moonvine Moppa Shiraz
Vineyard | Barossa Valley // Dry Grown Old Vines
Winemaker | Justin Ardill, Owner & Winemaker since 1993
Winemaking & Viticulture | This second vintage release wine has been hand-crafted from a small parcel of premium fruit sourced from dry grown old vines in the Barossa Valley, South Australia.
These aged vines produce small yields of premium quality fruit with concentrated flavours and balanced acidity. Hand picked at optimal ripeness, our winemaker Justin Ardill uses traditional winemaking techniques of open fermentation, cold soaking, prolonged skin contact and hand plunging before gently pressing to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannin from the berries.
Maturation in fine grained French oak hogsheads for 24 months has allowed development of smooth vanilla oak characteristics.
Profile | This full bodied wine shows layers of dark fruits with lifted spice and rich soft tannins. The wine displays well integrated oak with a long lingering finish.
