2018 Rockford Moppa Springs GMS


Moppa Springs, Ebenezer, and Kalimna, are some of the driest areas in the Barossa. This hard country is cold, wet and frosty during pruning, then hot, dry and dusty during harvest. These are the kind of tough conditions that ensure Grenache, Mataro, and Shiraz give their best. 

The grapes are hand-forked into Rockford's famed 1880’s Bagshaw de-stemmer, open-fermented and then gently basket pressed. All of the components for Moppa Springs are aged separately in a combination of seasoned American and French oak hogsheads and large vats to allow the tannins to soften and colours and flavours to consolidate.

Tasting Note: Grenache supplies the sour cherry, whilst Mataro offers a savoury cocoa note and Shiraz holds it all together with a backbone of fine tannins and a touch of brambly fruit. The wine is elegant and restrained with a subtle note of vanilla and pretty floral notes.

Origin: Barossa, Australia

Blend: Grenache, Mataro, Shiraz
