Moppity Vineyards Lock & Key Shiraz 2017

Back in the (very) early days of this blog, the wines of Moppity Vineyard - to this day owned and operated by Jason and Alicia Brown - were some of the first reviewed. Brand awareness off the back of an active social media presence, when Twitter was a vibrant hive of the Australian wine scene. 

Savoury mien, grilled meat aspects over black fruit. Subtle herb and spice twists. The palate offers more definition, black fruited presence with cool climate peppery twists; tannin fine, running long with flavour across the palate. 

What strikes me is the offer of fruit, of place, balanced, with presence and persistence. 91
