Giovanni Tait mastered the family tradition of coopering wine barrels before migrating to Australia in 1957. He took up work in the Barossa and ultimately settled in for a lengthy engagement at B Seppelts and Sons, where he played a significant role in the vinification and maturation of some of the most memorable vintages in Australian viticulture. Tait's boys grew up to be winemakers, their attention to detail and close relationship with the Barossa's finest growers have earned the highest accolades from the international wine industry press. Generously proportioned yet exquisitely balanced, famously praised, perennially by savant Robert Parker as the most consistently outstanding quality, exceptional value wines from Barossa Valley...

Moppity Lock Key Cabernet Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Cabernet Sauvignon Hilltops New South Wales
Moppity have claimed many conspicuous accolades at national wine shows and international competitions. Their property sits at the highest elevation of the Hilltops region, its distinguished vines are among the eldest in the area, the source of fruit for many memorable vintages including the 2009 Jimmy Watson winner.

Available by the dozen
Case of 12
$215.00
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.
