When you've got MOXIE... You need the wine to match!

MOXIE is a non-vintage Sparkling Shiraz - A blend of various vintages including a Shiraz base that contains vintages as far back as 1996 to give extra depth and richness.

This is a quintessential Australian Sparkling Red wine. It is rich, dark and dangerously delicious and has a full-bodied, velvety palate exhibiting flavours of blackberry and cherry with hints of chocolate and spice. While rich, the wine is never cloying, finishing with vibrant acidity and some lovely drying tannins to offset the semi-sweetness of the wine.

Moxie should be consumed cold, with good company, good food, and good cheer...

Characteristics:

Colour: Very deep, rich crimson in colour with crimson hue.

Nose: Notes of blackberry and cherry fruits, spice box and a little pepper

Palate: Dark fruits carry through onto the rich, velvety, long and slightly sweet but not cloying palate.

Reviews & Awards:

92 Points - Halliday Wine Companion – Highly Recommended

“Deserves greater recognition than it has. It is a blend of 79% non-vintage base wine ('96-'12 vintages and 21% '17 shiraz). The dosage of 21g/l is less than many of its competitors, leaving the spice, Cherry Ripe and licorice flavours free to tantalise the taste buds of all comers.” James Halliday
