Jason Brown is one of the true champions of Hilltops Shiraz. He describes it as a halfway point between the power of Barossa Shiraz and the cool-climate finesse of the wines from the Grampians.
The 2015 vintage was a warmer one for the region, developing Shiraz of inherent power, density and ripe fruit characters. The 2015 Moppity Estate Shiraz is a robust wine for the region and one that certainly stands out from the pack.
Jason thinks this wine surpasses the highly acclaimed 2014 vintage, and early show resluts would indicate the same. The 2015 vintage was named the 2016 Hilltops Wine of the Year, a wine that can be held up as an excellent example of the region fully realising its potential for this variety.
What It Tastes Like
Dense, inky Shiraz with powerhouse aromatics. It’s all blackberry, black cherry and black pepper with easy power at its disposal. It’s concentrated and framed so well with a lick of sweet oak. Showstopper. fans of previous vintages will not be disappointed.

About the Producer
In less than 5 years Moppity have captured the wine trade’s imagination with their wonderfully balanced, concentrated and expressive cool climate wines. Take note, this winery are one of the rising stars if Australian wine.
This is one to watch. The Hilltops in NSW has some huge potential. The high altitude vineyards in this region are producing some of the most epic cool climate Syrah/Shiraz and Cabernet on the market at the moment. With a relatively low profile (for now), the value to be had in this area is second to none. But get in quick, the word is getting out and it wont be that way for long. Love yourself the more refined side of Shiraz? The Hilltops is a place you really need to check out.
Long held up to the rest of the world as Australia’s flagship red variety, the mighty Australian Shiraz has undergone something of a renaissance over the past two decades. While our robust styles of Shiraz from powerhouse South Australian regions such as the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale may have put Australian wine on the map, Shiraz from our cooler regions are giving the variety a new look. Wines from Canberra, all parts of Victoria, the Adelaide Hills, and the Great Southern, are all delivering wines of finesse and spice set to a lighter framework. The tapestry of Australian Shiraz is richly diverse, and will only continue to develop and mature into the future.
