Winemaker's Notes
Full and expansive. An immersion of flavour saturation and a textural continuum across the palate. Mouth-coating sweet tannins and balanced acidity...never confronted by any threat of new oak. Black olive and chocolate notes resonate with an abundance of fruits – plum, prune, blackberries, wild blueberries... Persistent length and flavour, finishing firm and assertive. Drink 2017 - 2032."

Technical Notes
"Matured for 12 months in seasoned Americanoak hogsheads. 14.5% alc."
James Halliday
"94 pts ... Sourced from the Barossa Valley, McLaren Vale, Padthaway and Langhorne Creek; matured for 12 months in used American hogsheads handed down from prior duties with Grange, Bin 389 and so forth. Healthy and deep colour, it has a rich bouquet with licorice, spice, dark chocolate and blackberry all in unison. Good stuff indeed, with the savoury/inky/graphite impact of the very long, balanced medium to fullbodied palate. This could well evolve into one of the great Bin 28s. Drink through 2033."

2014 Kalleske Moppa Shiraz
New Vintage! What a crazy good wine! An intense core of dark fruit is surrounded by cinnamon spice and fragrant wood aromas and flavors. The finish is filled with spice, fine tannins and more dark berry flavors. Surprisingly tasty with a miso-soy chicken broth with sauteed tofu and broccoli.
