Moppity Vineyards Reserve Shiraz 2008

From some of the oldest vines in the region, Jason Brown has crafted this exquisite wine.  The presence of a small amount of co-fermented Viognier can be detected with the slight lifted aromatics as you approach the wine.

Entry shows an incredibly silken earthen mouthfeel; a gentle burst of warmth on entry presents itself to fade quickly, delivering concentrated dark berry fruit and supporting spice.  The wine feels incredibly delicate, a nod to the excellent care and winemaking.  

The finish is of some length, with a sublime peppery drive permeating through the palate with very fine tannins concluding this excellent drinking experience.
