By setting a new benchmark in quality for NSW they have put the Hilltops on the map as one of the most exciting emerging wine regions in Australia, thanks in large part to their Reserve Shiraz.
This is the first ever Sparkling Shiraz from NSW, made from some of Moppity’s most prized fruit.
This is up there with the best of the best. Premium, in the truest sense of the word.
For class act red bubbly, there is nowhere else you need to look.
What It Tastes Like
Fizzes with violet and blackberry liqueur, all matter of spices and fine peppery notes in the fray. The mouth is fine and creamy with a succulent, plush mid palate, extraordinary length and talc-like tension giving definition. It’s cool, and calm and elegant. The Rolls Royce of red bubbles. A mighty fine wine, all in all.

The first sparkling Shiraz to be made from the region but certainly not the last. The Hilltops region’s warm days and cool nights produce rich and elegant Shiraz fruit that is ideally suited to this unique Australian wines tyle. Co-fermentation with Viognier has added another dimension of complexity and refinement to the palate.
This is an intensely flavoured wine with concentrated flavours of ripe cherry, blackberry, spices and cracked pepper. With a rich palate that’s concentrated, complex, elegant and refined, this is a wonderful wine that showcases the diversity of the Hilltops as a region for ultra-premium red wines.

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.
