2018 Laughing Jack Moppa Hill Shiraz
On the nose it shows sun-ripened dark plums and mulberry dusted with cinnamon and cloves. The vineyard site assures a true sense of place with its purity of fruit, green peppercorn spice and dried lavender. There is a subtle suggestion of geological input from the site adding complexity with a hint of iron.
On the palate, concentrated and intense freshly cut ripe Satsuma follows on the palate. Flavours are vibrant, captured at that moment in the ripening spectrum when both tang and richness contribute. Subtle oak frames the flavours without ever pulling focus. Tensioned with a delicious flow of mineral acidity and bolstered with Laughing Jack’s usual gentle tannin structure, a long life in the cellar is guaranteed. However fruit, tannin and acidity conspire to deliver an incredibly pleasurable experience right now.
