Moothi Estate, Moothi Rocks Shiraz Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon 2017, Mudgee, New South Wales, Australia
Tasting Note: A versatile red blend with hair on its chest and a fit, slender, ectomorphic body build to match.
Deep-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of bramble, black plum and blackberry with hints of violet blossom and white pepper.
On the palate the dry, full-bodied red blend has medium-plus-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and grippy, medium-plus tannin.
There is balance between the fruit and tannin structure.
Lovely balance and bouquet.
Moothi Estate produces 3,000 cases of wine a year, and 95% is sold in Mudgee including at the winery and local bars.
Bottle Note: Moothi Estate lies within the beautiful wine region of Mudgee, NSW and our vineyard is one of the highest in the area. Our perfect position allows us to produce outstanding, 100%, estate grown wines and is also a cracking spot to visit for a tasting and lunch. A classic red blend, designed with the humble barbeque in mind. Burgers, grilled meats and sausages will pair well with the cherry and black plum characters and hints of oak. Composed of shiraz, merlot and cabernet sauvignon, this wine will drink well young yet age beautifully.
