Moppity Lock and Key Shiraz 2017 (Hilltops, NSW) "...floral, red berry, clove..."
Moppity Vineyards is a flagship producer of the Hilltops region and recently rocketed to prominence having claimed some of the most coveted prizes in wine making, both in Australia and overseas. Moppity vineyards won over 90 trophies and medals since 2009 and produced fruit for the ’09 Jimmy Watson winner. No wonder Campbell Mattinson has heralded Moppity as “a rising star of top-end Australian wine".
“Deep crimson purple, this is a genuine step above its non-reserve sibling, deeper and darker in flavour with its black fruits, firm tannins and new French oak. Right in the Moppity slot, it’s Trophy for Best NSW Shiraz at the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge 2017 was richly deserved.” - 96 Points, James Halliday (Wine Companion)
"Typical cool climate fragrance, spice and floral notes but underlaid by a core of rich, dark fruit. The tannins are wonderfully silky and judicious use of large French barrels has contributed another layer of complexity" - Producer
