2014 Kalleske Moppa Shiraz
Barossa Valley, South Australia
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.
$32.39 as part of a mixed case.

Winemaker's Notes Notes
"Moppa 2014 is inky purple in colour. It’s alive with scent, displaying attractive aromatics of fruit cake, chocolate, flowers, dried herbs, musk, vanilla custard and cinnamon spice. The palate is full-bodied and initially greets you with juicy red- black fruits followed by toasty hazel-nutty oak and chocolate. The tannin profile is superb, fine grained but fleshy adding texture and definition. Well structured, this is a complex and well balanced wine with fruit at the fore but background oak in support. Generous in flavour, it’s completed by a very lengthy finish. Moppa 2014 is an expressive Shiraz that can be enjoyed now or will cellar well in the medium to long term."
"Grapes are from ten different blocks on the Kalleske’s organic farm, with the oldest of these blocks planted in 1961. The vines are low-yielding and are grown in shallow, sandy loam soil over superb deep red clay, providing ideal conditions for these varieties.The wine was aged in hogshead barrels for sixteen months. Approximately 25% new French, American, Hungarian and Russian oak was used with the balance seasoned barrels. On completion of maturation, a small portion of Petit Verdot and Shiraz/Viognier was blended for added complexity. This wine is 100% Organic / Biodynamic as certified by Australian Certified Organic. 14.5% alc."

$39.9995 JH; 93 ST Who needs to make the Grange for a big corporation when you can make this incredible Shiraz for yourself?!

Delicious and definitely too good young as it will certainly continue to be tasty over many more years.
