Spinifex 'Moppa' Shiraz 2021

$67.00 $63.00
Spinifex’s 3.5-acre Moppa Shiraz source is in an elevated zone in the northwest, a site which has been producing exceptional Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro for Spinifex since 2005. Although the exact age of the vineyard is unknown, it is thought to be at least 80 years old. It has been managed organically for 40 of those years by a unique vigneron who grew up on the block and has the utmost respect for his vines. 

The result is a whole lot of wine for your money. Restrained Barossa power is balanced by perfectly pitched weight, structure, acidity and an incredibly persistent finish. It’s rich, deep, and a wee bit boisterous with abundant and complex flavours, seductive appeal and signature Spinifex balance. Modern Barossa at its best.

“Very deep, concentrated purple-red colour that stains the glass. Concentrated and powerful to sniff and taste with impressive depth of dark fruits, tar, bitumen dried herbs and black pepper; the palate is full-bodied and powerful, dense and rich, fleshy and profound with enduring length. Blackberry and licorice, a riot of flavour: it's an exercise in power delivered with elegance. A very big and very young shiraz with a great future.” 96 points, Huon Hooke, The Real Review

“This is a serious Barossa shiraz. Serious colour, serious depth, serious flavour. It’s a plush wine, ripped with cedarwood and violet, blackberry and saturated plum flavours, with runs of dark chocolate and spearmint purring throughout. There’s a deceptive amount of tannin here too; deceptive because it’s so velvety, and so well integrated into the fruit. This is a bold wine. Big. Soft. Rich. And emphatic.” 95 points, Campbell Mattinson, The Wine Front
