2016 Lock & Key Shiraz

Hilltops, NSW

A perennial bargain Shiraz from this NSW powerhouse producer.



About The Wine

 Lock and Key is the entry label of Moppity Vineyards in NSW high country.

Shiraz is what Moppity do best, and at sub $20 this little beauty is the perfect way to get to know their unique style. The 2016 picked up 95 points from James Halliday and a Gold Medal at the Melbourne Wine Show.

Moppity owner Jason Brown reckons 2016 may just be the winery's best vintage yet. It's firm and ripe yet elegant and balanced, and if there's a more complete cool climate Australian Shiraz at the same price then we'd love to see it.

A no-brainer.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Cold-soaked pre-ferment, 12-day fermentation, matured in used French hogsheads and stainless steel. Gold medal Melbourne Wine Awards '17. It is a wine built around its texture and structure, the flavours held within dark berry and earthy, yet mouthwatering, tannins." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

We believe a key element of all ‘Moppity Shiraz’ comes from the art of blending small batches of different blocks and clones to produce wines that have a kaleidoscope of flavour and textural profiles.
