2021 Moppa Grenache

2021 Moppa Grenache

The sub-region of Moppa lies at the northern most tip of the Barossa Valley's western edge. The undulating landscape is rich with ancient stone and red/brown loams, mirroring the profile and geological diversity of our own vineyards at Marananga and Seppeltsfield. Together, these three estates now form the foundation of our winemaking masterplan. Sourced from a single block of Grenache vines located on an east-facing slope. The thin brown loam topsoils lie over a seam of ancient marble and ironstone, producing low yields of small-berried Grenache. This produces intensely flavoured wines, typical of the Greenock Creek style. The fruit is harvested and destemmed, and fermented for 7-10 days with twice daily pump-overs. The wine is basket pressed to a combination of seasoned French and American oak hogsheads for 8 months maturation prior to bottling. A fragrant wine displaying red fruits and warm spices. On the palate, raspberry and mulberry fruits intermingle over powdery tannins. The finish if fresh and delicate. Drink now to 2028. Approximately 2,500 bottles made.
