The Hilltops climate is cool to moderate, Moppity's vines are planted to dark red volcanic granitic clays, impregnated with basalt. Summer rainfall is low such that vine vigour can be readily controlled to optimise the quality of fruit. A long, even ripening period supports flavour development and underpins the intensity of the wines. Although early spring frost is an issue in the district, Moppity Vineyard is sited on undulating terrain, ensuring adequate frost drainage. Cabernet grapes are treated to a cold soak for the extraction of flavours, colour and tannin, followed by a fortnight of fermentation and a term of maturation in a selection of seasoned and new, French oak hogsheads and barriques.
Vibrant purple colour. Lifted dark berries with hints of mint and dried herbs. Palate displays a varietal integrity which belies its pricepoint. Packed with blackcurrant, cedar and forest fruits and a tannin structure that elevates it from the plethora of early drinking Cabernets. A very generous and stylish wine with beautiful balance that delivers incredible value for money, pair it off with lamb, oregano and roast vegetables.
